Marin Katusa, founder of Katusa Research, explains why he calls negative interest rates a "financially transmitted disease." He reveals how negative interest rate policy (NIRP) affects savings rates and the rest of the global economy. He talks about the potential for further negative rates around the world, as well as the prospects for NIRP in the United States. In the face of a dismal global macro picture, Katusa argues that exposure to U.S. dollars, precious metals (especially miners), and bitcoin will bolster portfolios through turbulent times.
