Chris Whalen continues:


When asked if there was a possibility of a bank holiday in the US, where the currency would be devalued, Whalen replied, “Well, you see in the US you already have that built in.  The ability of the Fed to monetize assets, seemingly at will, means you’ve already got a devaluation baked in.  So you don’t need that dramatic, climactic crisis type of event that you had in the 1930s when FDR arbitrarily devalued the dollar.  And it didn’t work, by the way.  It had a horrible effect on the US economy and made the Depression much worse.


So we’re constantly punishing consumers and others with this steady double digit inflation rate for consumer goods, energy and things of that nature.


But in other nations, look at the EU, you could have a couple of nations leave the currency bloc, which would, in effect, be that kind of cataclysmic event because it’s a political as well as a financial default.  That kind of reminds you of the Latin American period, Mexico, Argentina, that kind of thing, where it’s more of a political event.


You could see bank holidays in Europe as a result of that, no question.  But I think it would be mostly because they would have to come up with new currencies....

“For example if Spain and Greece left the EU, they would probably have to have a bank holiday just so they could physically print enough money to replace the euro.  That’s not a minor undertaking, but they could do it.


You would probably have a transition.  But imagine the chaos if you start telling tens of millions of people that the money in their pocket is no good.”


When asked if that meant gold is going higher, Whalen responded, “Oh definitely.  I don’t trade it, I don’t advise clients on it, but I think all commodities, whether it’s gold or platinum or any of the big industrial metals, are going to continue to be your best hedge against inflation.   Some real estate, to a degree, but remembering location, location, location.


I think that’s where I would tell my clients to hide their money.  That’s why I’m focused on creating some low beta assets working with Tangent (Capital) next year because I think that’s what clients want.  They want less volatility, they want cash flow and they want to put their money into part of the economy that’s less volatile than the high beta world of large cap equities.  There is a lot of other equity out there that nobody ever pays any attention to and we’re going to focus on that.”
