    How is this time period an analog to 1920-21 not 1929-41? Talk about cherry picking an example of short downturn from the “gold standard” era! This guy is a broken clock.

    His short bond calls have been crushed. Crush by much more than just the “repression” that is his excuse.
    His great call “buy gold”..has now been outperformed by equities since the great devil became president.

    Someday he may be correct, but you will be broke first listening to him.

    “His great call “buy gold”..has now been outperformed by equities since the great devil became president.”

    Talk about cherry picking a time period. In the past 3 years, SPY is up about 80% from the *generational low* while GLD is “only” up about 76%. If that’s what you call being broke, I’ll take it.

    James Grant has been recommending gold for a long time. Try a different period…say 10 years. How does that comparison work-out?

    Anyone who has followed Grant’s suggestion to buy and hold gold has done very well. Buy-and-holders of stocks, not so much.

    Maybe it was me, but the usually snappy Jim Grant sounded a little distracted, if not half asleep in this radio interview. Maybe he does TV better….
