Michael Burry- perhaps the only man to have forseen this financial crisis as early as 2003, (and he made a killing betting against the subprime market) Gave an interesting lecture at Vanderbilt this past Spring. It is well worth the 30 minutes to hear his thought process. In the lecture it is evident that he does not have a very optimistic view of the future of the United States economy.
At the end of this lecture, he half jokingly says that it might be a good idea to open up a Canadian bank account. Do you think there would be safety in moving to a foreign currency??
