Matterhorn’s von Greyerz Explains Why The Apocalypse Is Nigh
by Tyler Durden
A few days ago we presented the most recent investor letter by Egon von Greyerz of Matterhorn, whose pessimism makes David Rosenberg seem like a CNBC staple cheerleader. Today, CNBC invited the hyperinflationist to its European studio where von Greyerz engaged in some entertaining sparring with the anchor over two totally different worldviews. Those who have read the letter previously, and have followed the inflationist side of the argument, will not be surprised by any of the disclosures: decades of debt fueled prosperity, $20 trillion backstop of financial institutions, deteriorating fundamentals, reckless money printing, and gold as the only real store of value: in other words – all the things that those who see no treasury bubble will close their eyes to and quickly walk away from.
