Mr. Townsend thinks the Dollar Index will continue to increase until global central bankers sit down and agree to another Plaza Accord to manipulate and intervene in currency markets.  I’m on record for over a year:  central bankers and policy makers will start to sound conservative noises about their fears of the dollar rising too far, too fast, once the Dollar Index exceeds 105.  That will be a trigger for attempts to talk down the dollar, to slow the rise.  We will see a huge hit to profits of U.S. large corporations as the dollar rises and there’s already signs the earning season about to get underway will carry this theme into the mainstream consciousness of market participants, and you will see this within two weeks.  Mr. Townsend is one of the more sober analysts covering the alternative asset markets and his perspective usually provides rational “food for thought.”  He’s a superb “global macro” thinker. – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors

“Guns & Butter” is one of the best radio programs around.  I’ve been listening to it since Bonnie Faulkner’s very first show well over a decade ago. “Guns & Butter” is quality “fake news.” 😉  – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors.
