Brent Johnson: The U.S Dollar Wrecking Ball

On today's edition of "Boiler Room," Alfonso Peccatiello is joined by Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital for a discussion on the US dollar. Known for his popular dollar milkshake theory, Brent says the U.S dollar wrecking ball is wounding the global economy.

Just how badly will this end for global balance sheets? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
