Resolve's Gestalt University

Oct 25, 2022

Our guest this week was Darius Dale, founder and CEO of 42 Macro, an investment research firm focused on macroeconomics. Our conversation covered topics including:

  • How higher inflation leads to higher inflation volatility and increased risk premia
  • The core drivers of inflation and where the data currently points
  • Complacency followed by overshooting – the central bank dichotomy
  • Don’t count on a pivot anytime soon – why Powell is determined to “break things”
  • An uncomfortable trade-off – under inflation, central banks can have price or financial stability, not both
  • Signs the US economy is still firing on all cylinders
  • Strong balance sheets and perhaps the strongest labor market in living memory
  • Why cash has once again taken the throne
  • The demise of the 60/40 portfolio
  • Energy markets dynamics – from geopolitics to ESG
  • Why a structural undersupply of labor reduces the probability of a recession
  • The dysfunctional combination of tighter monetary and looser fiscal policies
  • And much more

This is “ReSolve’s Riffs” – live on YouTube every Friday afternoon to debate the most relevant investment topics of the day, hosted by Adam Butler, Mike Philbrick and Rodrigo Gordillo of ReSolve Global* and Richard Laterman of ReSolve Asset Management Inc.
