Mid last week the odds of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg running for President in 2020 surged to 65% before decline at the end of the week. While Donald Trump is still favourite at 5/2, Paddy Power has just reduced the odds of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg winning the 2020 US presidential election from 25-1 to 16-1. Trump's deputy Mike Pence is tied second with Senator Elizabeth Warren with odds of 15-2. Other interesting inclusions to the betting odds list are wrestling super star and actor Dwayne Johnson (popularly known as the Rock, 16-1) and Michelle Obama (14-1). Zuckerberg is now ahead of Hillary Clinton whose dismal betting odds are dwindling even more, now going from 25-1 to 50-1.

In this podcast I speculate on how the pace of change is accelerating and what world my son will grow up in. But more importantly I look back to 8 years ago yesterday and 87 years ago yesterday, to what happened then and the mistakes and lessons we all forget to think about as we blunder on. Yes I am talking asset bubbles and stockmarket crashes again. Malcolm Stacey take note!

In today's podcast I look at the Greek Election next week. The voting is irrelevant, Angela Merkel will remain in charge whoever wins. Greece is still fucked and I explain why. Then it is onto interest rates in the US and UK - the FOMC meets on Thursday. Then asset bubbles and crowdfunding - an en passant mention for Vitesse Media. Finally to Hotel Corp (HCP) and the disgraceful smear compaihn by crony capitalist motherfucker Derek Short and Shore Cap against Marcus Yeoman. I have some bad news for Short & Shore Capital. Warning: this section contains some bad language.

Quantitative Easing 3 (QE3) is over but QE will be back. The real economy has not been kick-started all that the US has done is make zillions for Wall Street by creating new asset bubbles. And asset bubbles always pop in the end. This week my colleagues at palisade capital interviewed Peter Schiff , the President and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital and also the author of NY Times best seller “Crash Proof 2.0” and he makes the point incredibly well.
