We’re back with Episode 2 of the Prometheus Podcast! This recording is one of many podcasts to come, which will cover far-ranging topics in macro, markets, and investing. As always, our objective is to bring you thoughtful and actionable insights, and our conversations will always aim to be so.
Today, we have an exceptional guest, Alfonso Peccatiello- author of The Macro Compass. The Macro Compass is the largest macro Substack out there, and with good reason- Alfonso has a deep and rich understanding of the monetary system, which he has weaponized into an actionable investment framework. His approach is cogent and extremely relevant in today’s policy setting. During an in-depth conversation, they discussed the mechanics of the monetary system, the difference between various forms of credit, and how this can all be distilled into an investment portfolio. This is a must-listen for those wishing to link a robust monetary framework to actual risk-taking. Enjoy!
