Is the financial crisis really over? Are we in danger of another one? In a recent speech, Hank Paulson, the Secretary of the Treasury during the crisis said yes, we are still in danger and that “there are a number of issues that trouble and in some cases flabbergast me.” Our guest this week, Matthew McLennan, is in complete agreement. McLennan, whom we have identified as a Next Generation Great Investor, runs the five-star rated First Eagle Global Fund, which he took over from legendary value investor Jean Marie Eveillard five years ago in the midst of the financial crisis. McLennan calls the widely believed “return to normalcy” that we are experiencing a “Keynesian mirage.”
