Lyn Alden: Bank Runs And The Financial Repression End Game | Lyn Alden

For some time now it has been the belief of many Fed-watchers that the Federal Reserve would continue to hike interest rates until it "breaks something." Lyn Alden of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy returns to Forward Guidance to argue that the stunning collapse of two large U.S. banks represents such breakage. Alden tells Jack Farley that this damage will soon give way to a period of low real interest rates, where inflation runs above Treasury yields.
