Hugh Hendry: The U.S. Dollar System Is Broken

On today's edition of "Boiler Room," Alfonso Peccatiello is joined by Hugh Hendry host of the "Acid Capitalist" podcast. Hugh spent 15 years, from 2002 - 2017, as CIO of his macro hedge fund Eclectica Asset Management. Since closing the fund in 2017, Hugh now resides in Saint Barthélemy investing in luxury hotels, surfing & thinking about markets.
