Optimists, pessimists and alarmists have moved from cable news stations to the financial networks, and two of the best known prognosticators join me in hour three of today’s show to debate the nation’s and the world’s economic future.
Brian Wesbury of First Trust Portfolios is my regular economist, and generally an upbeat fellow. He is also the author if It’s Not as Bad as You Think: Why Capitalism Trumps Fear and the Economy Will Thrive.
James Rickards, by contrast, is an investment banker who sees a great gathering storm in his new book Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis.
They will join me for hour three today so you can decide for yourself whether the world’s glass is filling or emptying as we watch.
