The End of a 14-year Bull Market

The End of a 14-year Bull Market

The credit cycle is an unforgiving master, as interest rates rise, different questions are asked about both companies and investments. We examine the new world of positive interest rates and what it means for the global economy. With more than $3.4 trillion wiped off the value of tech companies, far more than the entire GDP of the UK, we assess the impact. Are you ready for the next phase of this cycle?

Finding Russia’s Remote Killers

Finding Russia’s Remote Killers

As the war between Russia and Ukraine grinds into winter, Putin's new strategy is to destroy Ukrainian infrastructure. What it couldn't achieve on the battle field Russia aims to achieve in the living room, by trying to freeze ordinary Ukrainians. Today we have a fascinating chat with European Investigative Journalist of the Year Christo Grozev of Bellingcat on how he identified the poisoners of Alexi Navalny and how, using the same techniques, he has identified the Russia's remote killers, the civilian men and women, computer programmers, software engineers and data specialists living normal lives in Russia, who actually push the buttons and program the missiles raining down on Ukraine. It's fascinating and chilling. Join the gang! https://plus.acast.com/s/the-david-mcwilliams-podcast. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

The great crypto collapse

The great crypto collapse

We've always been "Doomcoiners" - yes, you guessed it, not fans of crypto. Now you know why. A passing understanding of monetary economics and monetary history would have warned anyone to be very careful. One of the biggest crypto exchange has filled for bankruptcy and across the board crypto currency valuation is in free fall - How did we end up here? And more critically, what sort of frauds will be unearthed when the dust settles. Join the gang! https://plus.acast.com/s/the-david-mcwilliams-podcast. Hosted on Acast.
