Debt, Dollars, and Deficits with CME’s Blu Putnam

It’s a job all in itself to be able to look at data – especially data that affects all of us on a daily basis – and be able to interpret that to make sense to yourself. Take that and have to turn it into something that makes sense to everyone else – well that’s a gift.

And we’ve got the most gifted of them all joining us on The Derivative – CME Group’s Chief Economist Blu Putnam. We’re lucky enough to have Blu on today’s episode breaking down all that’s going on in the craziness of what we’re living through in 2020.

We’re getting outside the charts and into the conversation surrounding sailing in the Chesapeake, the U.S. dollar trending, the future of technology and small businesses, inflation during and post-corona, fed funds rate to ZERO, effects of printing more money, “coordinated” monetary policy, , the outlook on the remaining 2020 economy, gold rallies, the fed’s pandemic reaction, trading Bitcoin futures, signposts of inflation returning, and Blu’s favorite Chicago pizza – his wife’s.
