Since 2008, Jos Evans has been trading commodities. Few people on the planet know as much as he does about iron ore. In his trading career, he grew frustrated with the arcane world of Inter Dealer Brokers, the ~$6 billion industry that anonymizes transactions so that traders buying or selling large blocks of assets don't get front run by purpose-built algorithm robots that run around looking for big trades. Traders need the IDBs, but in the trading world, they are relative dinosaurs. Trades are placed on chat and messenger tools, and the IDB relies on humans to gather information from buyers and sellers. Jos and his AI-X team have a new solution, based on artificial intelligence. In this episode, Jos talks about the AI Exchange and about what's happening with commodities today.

What a Decline in China Will Mean for the World

Podcast cover
Read more

China has driven GDP based on heavy capital investment. When, at some point, that ends, and China's GDP growth falls dramatically, what will happen to the rest of the world?

Not that much, argues Michael Pettis. Pettis is a leading thinker on international trade and investment flows. He is currently a nonresident senior fellow in the Carnegie Asia Program, based in Beijing, and also professor of finance at Peking University's Guanghua School of Management, where he specializes in Chinese financial markets. He formerly taught at Tsinghua University's School of Economics and Management and before that at Columbia University. He spent the first half of his career on Wall Street in trading, capital markets, and corporate finance, working with Manufacturers Hanover (now JPMorgan) and Bear Stearns. He has also worked as a partner in a merchant-banking boutique that specialized in securitizing Latin American assets and at Credit Suisse First Boston, where he headed the emerging markets trading team.

China in Africa

Podcast cover

Howard French is the author of two books on Africa and three books on China, with one of those books being about China's booming ties with Africa. The more recent Africa book, "China's Second Continent," is about the million Chinese who have emigrated to the African continent since the 1990s and what they mean for China and for Africa. His newest book, “Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China’s Push for Global Power,” is a meditation on China's historical self image and what that means for China's current political leadership. In this interview, he talks about post-reform China's interaction with Africa. Currently a professor on the faculty of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, French for many years was a senior writer for The New York Times. From 2003 to July 2008, he was the newspaper's Shanghai bureau chief. Before his China assignment, French headed bureaus in Japan, West and Central Africa, and for Central America and the Caribbean.

The $53 Trillion Pricing Problem

Podcast cover
Read more

In this interview, Tim Bergin, a former bond trader, talks about why both stock and bond market valuations are stretched by at least $50 trillion and what will happen when that begins to unwind. He does not envision a crisis like that of 2008, but asset owners will get a lot poorer.

Tim has a particular focus on the Canadian economy and here discusses the real estate bubbles there and the ways in which banks and insurers are exposed to it. He looks at some long and short ideas that flow from the Canadian thesis.

Tim worked on a proprietary credit trading desk for 12 years at one of the largest credit institutions, managing portfolios of convertible bonds, corporate debt, CDS, interest rate swaps, equities, options, and products. He also worked for two credit-focused hedge funds. He now manages his own money and advises clients through his company On Beyond Investing. He is a fundamental, value-based investor but looks for value wherever it can be found, different asset classes, sectors, securities etc.

Listeners should note that nothing in this comment should be construed as investment advice or recommendations but only Tim Bergin's personal views. No one should make investments based on this podcast.

Snap-on's network of franchisees sell the premier line of auto-repair tool kits to mechanics all over America. But the market is pretty much saturated, and Snap-on is in denial. Since 2011, the company has committed that particularly American sin: binging on credit. Snap-on has been encouraging its franchisees to sell more and more using high-priced loans from the company's own Snap-on Credit division. Tim Murray thinks a lot of franchisees are mad as hell and aren't going to take this anymore. That will erode sales for this century-old American institution.

The RMB: an "insanely convex trade"

Podcast cover

China is trying to avoid the fact that its growth is chained to an ever more irrational load of debt and that the debt-intensity of growth becomes higher every year. Brian McCarthy manages a fund predicated on the idea that, far from rebalancing, China sees no other political options and will keep piling on debt until it hits a wall. That wall will entail a sharp devaluation of the RMB.
