Today’s episode of “On the Margin” Weekly Roundup with Mike Ippolito and Mark Yusko has a special guest — Mark Yusko himself! (Just kidding, he came back from a two-week hiatus.)

Mike and Mark quickly got into November’s 6.8% CPI print, which was the highest in 39 years. They also discussed the factors driving inflation, and whether or not the factors pointed toward transitory or permanent inflation. Mike and Mark also covered Evergrande’s default, and whether or not the resulting fallout is cause for concern.

They also tackled skyrocketing household debt, a slowing global credit impulse and whether or not the world is headed for “Japanification,” before finally sharing their final thoughts on where bitcoin is headed next. Tune in to find out more.
