The question is- what is going to be the velocity of that increase in rates? Is it going to happen like a shock? If that’s the case, then we see a major slowdown in the world economy and a major correction in stock market.

Stansberry Radio hosted global asset manager and regular MarketWatch contributor, Eric St-Cyr on its popular podcast Stansberry Radio with Porter Stansberry last week (Episode 81). Stansberry Radio, a provider of independent financial research, is produced and distributed weekly as a part of the Stansberry Radio Network.
Among the topics discussed in the interview, Stansberry and co-host Aaron Brabham questioned St-Cyr about his take on the U.S. dollar and St. Cyr’s opinion on deflation. “We read your quarterly market report yesterday, and you’re giving a 10% chance more for deflation than you are inflation. I think you have it weighted at a 30% chance versus a 20% chance. Then, you have 50% that we just kind of slog through it” said Brabham.
“We usually have inflation higher than deflation,” stated St. Cyr. “He’s (Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke) starting to indicate that they will gradually reduce the intervention within the market. We think that’s going to push rates higher. The question is- what is going to be the velocity of that increase in rates? Is it going to happen like a shock? If that’s the case, then we see a major slowdown in the world economy and a major correction in stock market… If that does happen, that’s going to move us into deflation because the economy is just going to jam.”
