LIVE On CNBC: Kyle Bass Hates Equities, Warns Of Hyperinflation, And Definitely Sees Currency Debasement

Hedge fund manager Kyle Bass is on CNBC right now.

His comments are always interesting and worth following.

First up: Why he’s not interested in equities…

He’s talking a lot about quantitative easing, and the “zero bound”, where lower rates can no longer spur more credit demand.

“I’m not sure if you printed $5 trillion whether that would spur more borrowers to borrow… all that might do is debase the currency.

On housing…
