House of Cards: Has the US Economy Recovered?

misesmedia - 2017-05-17

Join Doug Casey, Walter Block, Tom Woods, Bob Murphy, Laura Davidson, and Jeff Deist LIVE! from historic Town Hall Seattle! All times are PDT. The media insists the US economy has recovered from the 2008 crash. Equities markets have enjoyed a bull run since the election. Housing prices are rising in expensive coastal cities. Government offices continue to report that GDP is growing while inflation remains in check. And insiders like JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon insist that American consumers and businesses are upbeat about the future. But is the supposed recovery an illusion, fueled by an artificial supply of money and cheap credit from the Fed? Are housing and equity prices headed for a fall? Is inflation actually much higher than reported? Will older Americans ever recover their savings lost in the last crash? Will savers continue to lose ground to artificially low interest rates? Our great lineup of speakers will challenge the conventional wisdom and give us their uncensored thoughts.
