Resolve's Gestalt University

Nov 7, 2022

We have been eagerly waiting for this one for a while! Our friend Mike Green, Chief Strategist and Portfolio Manager at Simplify Asset Management, returned to the podcast this week. Always thought-provoking, Mike journeyed with us through a wide range of topics that included:

  • Why the enthusiasm for central bank intervention is so asymmetric
  • Options trading and the wild swings in Zero Days to Expiration Options (0DTE)
  • Statistical anomalies in the labor market
  • The primary drivers of inflation in the 1970s
  • A comparison between Volcker and Powell
  • Monetary policy as a blunt tool and powerful opioid – numbing investors and delaying reforms
  • Tax arbitrage by big corporations and why they must end
  • A path to political moderation in the US
  • Why tighter monetary policy may be the wrong policy right now
  • A criticism of the Fed – authority, legitimacy, and reach
  • Reasons for underinvestment in US energy production
  • Why the capital allocation process in the US economy is largely broken
  • An update on the recent dynamics of passive investment vehicles
  • Home ownership, nimbyism, and affordability
  • The importance of the Minsky Framework for the current environment
  • “If you’re not doing macro, macro is doing you”
  • 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.
