  1. The Death of Europe, with Douglas Murray

    Recorded on June 3, 2019

    To comment please go to https://www.hoover.org/research/death-europe-douglas-murray

    In this episode of Uncommon Knowledge, Peter Robinson is joined by author and columnist Douglas Murray to discuss his new book The Madness of Crowds: Race, Gender and Identity. Murray examines the most divisive issues today, including sexuality, gender, and technology, and how new culture wars are playing out everywhere in the name of social justice, identity politics, and intersectionality. Is European culture and society in a death spiral caused by immigration and assimilation? Robinson and Murray also discuss the roles that Brexit and the rise of populism in European politics play in writing immigration laws across the European Union.

  2. The Politics of Hollywood with Andrew Breitbart

    Identified as one of the ten most important people in the media that nobodys ever met, Andrew Breitbart details why leftward-leaning Hollywood is dangerous for America and why the people who run it are uninteresting, vitriolic, and vicious. Segueing from Hollywood to the Internet, Breitbart explores why the right dominates talk radio and the left seems to do better on the Internet and how the decline of print media is changing the nature of the national political conversation.

  3. Peter Thiel on “The Straussian Moment”

    Recorded on September 5, 2019.

    Peter Robinson opens the show by asking Thiel’s views on his own essay “The Straussian Moment.” (Essay link: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s542/client/snv?noteGuid=46c636b6-b404-45df-ab0a-1f84c6fdc8c2¬eKey=7c94233539b8258d72b395a063f3c589&sn=https://www.evernote.com/shard/s542/sh/46c636b6-b404-45df-ab0a-1f84c6fdc8c2/7c94233539b8258d72b395a063f3c589&title=That+Essay)Thiel responds by saying that people today believe in the power of the will but no longer trust the power of the intellect, the mind, and rationality. The question of human nature has been abandoned. We no longer trust people’s ability to think through issues. Thiel notes that this shift began to take place in 1969, when the United States put a man on the moon; three weeks later Woodstock took place, moving the culture in the direction of yoga and psychological retreat.

    Thiel further adds that there was still hope that things would open up for the world in 1989, when the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union collapsed, but that the leaders of China and other East Asian countries did not accept that openness would solve their problems. Instead they learned the opposite lessons from those events: that if you open things up too much, then things fall apart.

    Thiel ends the interview by noting that the…

  6. Unfunded Pensions & Potential Retirement Crisis (w/ Brian Reynolds) | Real Vision

    Brian Reynolds, former chief market strategist at Rosenblatt Securities, sits down with Real Vision’s Tyler Neville to discuss how unfunded pension liabilities are the real engine for the US credit boom and how this financial engineering has produced one of the greatest bull markets in history. A legal mandate requires these funds to generate 7.5% returns, and when they fail to do so, taxpayers foot the bill. As a larger percentage of these pensions are moved onto corporate balance sheets in the form of debt, the tightrope these pension funds walk gets more and more precarious. Filmed on March 25, 2019 in Goffstown, New Hampshire.

  9. Steve Diggle: From Artradis to Vulpes

    Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Steve Diggle is the co-founder of Artradis Fund Management, a hedge fund group significantly focused on arbitrage and volatility trading in Asia. The group ultimately enjoyed great success and grew its AUM to nearly $5bn in 2008. Artradis had seven years of profits which peaked in 2007 - 2008 where the firm made $2.7 billion profits for investors as markets see-sawed. As long volatility shop, Atradis later incurred losses while volatility declined and became more expensive.

    The financial success of Artradis has allowed Steve Diggle to create Vulpes Investment Management, an unconstrained investment manager. In April 2011 Vulpes was seeded with over US$200m and currently has five funds open to third-party investors. The team consists of 19 professionals of which 10 transitioned from Artradis Fund Management. Diggle says he created Vulpes "to face and profit from the myriad challenges of the post- 2008 financial crisis" and focus on wealth protection "by concentrating on a small number of compelling investment opportunities."

    In this Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE video, Steve Diggle talks about: * Vulpes’ investment propositions: Volatility, Farmland, German Property, Russia, Life Sciences, long-term endowment-style fund blending listed and …
