From The Episode:

  • “Graduate economics, they were trying to jam the world into a mathematical equation and I just didn’t think it fit. I’ve think I’ve been proved right on that if you look at the 800 PhD’s at the Fed and you look at their predictive record, it’s not so good.”
  • “I have more humility than I’ve ever had in terms of a forecast. In fact, my positions reflect that. They’re very light. Not because I’m scared, just because I can’t see a fat pitch, I can’t figure it out.”
  • “I’m constantly fighting my bearishness about the world…I know that if you have a bearish bias, you have to be very aware of it. You have to work around it. And I always have.”
  • “We’ve never seen the gap we have now between monetary policy and inflation. A lot of my gig is to go back and find historical analogues and see how they worked out and learn from them. This is the most unprecedented cocktail I’ve ever been served up.”
