"We are either already in a recession or rapidly moving towards one," warns billionaire investors Sam Zell. A stunned Maria Bartiromo is shocked to hear from Zell that world trade has slowed dramatically and currency wars and election uncertainties have contributed to this. Most shocking of all to the Keynesian pump-primers (and oil bulls) is Zell's remarks that "when I look around the world for prospective demand, it's not there... demand is pretty weak." Markets are not pricing in recession and Zell warns, even with recent declines that "this is pretty frothy" thanks to easy money and he is a seller not a buyer.
Zell warns - "The Fed is out of tools [to save the markets].. and that is going to make this more problematic."
