Kevin wanted to come back on for another interview because he didn’t get to discuss his expertise, shorting stocks. Kevin has been shorting stocks professionally for over 20 years.
Jason starts off the interview by asking Kevin about the Brexit vote to leave and what it means for European banks and the British Pound?
Jason and Kevin talk about the continued, worsening intervention of central planners into markets and how even if the UK leaves the EU completely, that the politicians, bureaucrats, central planners and central bankers in the UK will still continue monetary and fiscal policies that will probably make their economy worse.
Kevin talks about the massive government bond bubble and the problems with negative interest rates.
Jason, then asks Kevin about the short selling philosophy of famous investor and short seller, Jim Chanos http://www.valuewalk.com/jim-chanos-bio/

1) Credit Booms That Go Bust
2) Obsolete Technologies like Kodak
3) Companies with too much debt on balance sheet
4) Fraudulent accounting like from Enron
