One month ago it was SocGen’s Albert Edwards, who after calling for a deflationary Ice Age for over two decades, finally threw in the towel and conceded that “we are transitioning from The Ice Age to The Great Melt” as “massive monetary stimulus is combining with frenzied fiscal pump-priming in an attempt to paper over the current slump.”
At roughly the same time, “the world’s most bearish hedge fund manager”, Horseman Global’s Russell Clark reached a similar conclusion writing that “all the reasons that made me believe in deflation for nearly 10 years, do not really exist anymore. China looks okay to me, and potentially very good. Commodity supply is getting cut at a rate I have never seen before. The US dollar is strong but will likely weaken from here.
