Jim is pleased to welcome back Eric Janszen, Founder & President at iTulip Inc. Eric notes that the market impact of the Fed’s recent announcement of QE3 has been underwhelming thus far. He still is an owner of gold, but is reducing his treasury bond holdings and moving toward private equity instead. Eric believes the next big event will be trouble in the bond markets, caused by the Fed’s continuous intervention. He also sees "peak cheap energy" as a limiting factor on economic growth in the future.
