Blain's Financial Porridge

  • Blain's Financial Porridge Podcast is market commentary with a dash of spice, cynicism, and common sense. Investment banker and market commentator Bill Blain examines what's moving the Global Financial Markets: politics, global events, stocks and shares, bonds, alternatives, Macro and Micro thematics, and the environment. Covering all sectors from tech to finance, the Porridge Podcast is unlike anything else out there. If you want to hear how it really is, listen to the weekly Financial Porridge Podcast.

Blain's Financial Porridge - Decade Outlook - December 23rd 2019 :



1) Market Distortion – how long can central banks keep juicing the party?

2) New Opportunities – how with a new industrial revolution in tech, pharma, health and climate cure change markets?

3) Politics will continue to dominate – what are the risks of political failure?

4) Debt Crisis Risks

5) Geopolitical Risks increasing

6) ESG and Sustainability

7) Climate Change

The two big market narratives will revolve around:

· Can the market distortions of the last 10-years be unwound without triggering an even greater crisis – are we trapped in repressed markets? 

· Global Debt Crisis looks increasingly likely as governments step up borrowing and corporates look to paydown the debt binge of the 2010s. The final crisis may come from personal debt.
