Conventional wisdom suggests economic and related tensions wrought by The Great Recession are in the rearview. All is good. Sunny skies for miles.
Not so says Hedgeye Managing Director and Demography Sector Head Neil Howe, who kicked off John Mauldin's Strategic Investment Conference in Dallas with a bang. "Our first presentation from Neil Howe on the First Turning was the perfect set-up... and truly was a show stopper," Mauldin wrote following Howe's presentation.
In the wide-ranging interview below following his speech, Howe explains why America is in a "position of extreme vulnerability" based on "the mood of the electorate" and "widening generational inequity." He discusses everything from the rise of polarizing political figures like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders to the Fed's "destructive monetary policy."
