TIP611: The Bear Case for China w/ Kyle Bass
Listen now
On today’s episode, Clay chats with Kyle Bass, the founder and principal of Hayman Capital Management. Hayman’s first major success came from effectively shorting the housing market in 2008, and Kyle was profiled in Michael Lewis’ book The Big Short.  After seeing Chinese stocks drop 20% over the past year, I invited Kyle back onto the show because he has been sounding the alarm bells for years on a market correction in Chinese markets.  IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN: 00:00 - Intro 02:01 - Why China is potentially preparing to invade Taiwan. 06:59 - How China has been restricting data and information flow to foreigners. 09:16 - Major military, mainland, and legal actions the CCP has taken in the past few years. 19:55 - Why foreign direct investment to China has collapsed in recent years. 25:53 - Potential sanctions the US may implement if China invades Taiwan. 33:38 - What Kyle is seeing in the Chinese real estate market. 39:33 - Whether he sees the crisis in Chinese affecting other markets globally. 47:10 - Why he believes the Fed is out of touch with reality. 54:48 - How Kyle is positioned as an investor today.
