Austrian economics and financial markets: Kevin Duffy interview

Mises Institute's Jeffrey Tucker interviews hedge fund manager, Kevin Duffy (Bearing Asset Mgmt.) to discuss Austrian economics and navigating the financial markets with an Austrian perspective.

This is a must watch, must hear discussion on basic economic principles and the problems of crony capitalism and the "political economy" that have grown out of the bailouts and stimulus-fueled responses to the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

QE and QE2 have helped spur a two year rally in the stock market, but Duffy argues that these easy money policies have created many harmful unintended consequences. Check out the full interview for insights into how Duffy and his firm use their Austrian viewpoint to analyze economic trends and invest in the capital markets.
