Bill and Grant welcome a man who is the absolute epitome of the phrase ‘a scholar and a gentleman’, Lacy Hunt, to The End Game.
The three discuss arguably one of the greatest trades of the century: Lacy and his partner, Van Hoisington’s 40-year bet on deflation.
Lacy talks about staying the course, the methodology they used to simplify their framework and what it might take for them to change tack after all this time.
The perfect counterpoint to Russell Napier’s appearance in Episode 5 of The End Game, Lacy uses his encyclopedic knowledge of econometric analysis, financial history and regulatory frameworks to explain why he remains resolute in the face a rising number of calls for the return of inflation.

The End Game Ep. 5 – Russell Napier

Bill and Grant welcome Russell Napier to The End Game to discuss the reasons behind the long-term disinflationist’s recent decision to step off that train and prepare for the return of inflation.
