Erik Townsend sits in for Jim this week on the Big Picture. Erik's first topic is "The Relentless Bid". Erik looks at why the stock market has seen such an unprecedented and nearly non-stop rally for the last five years, why it should continue for now, and how and why it might eventually end. Erik's next topic is about Russia and China, and how Cold War 2.0 is likely unless the US gets its foreign policy under control. Russia and, to a lesser extent, China have recently begun lobbying the other BRICS countries to create an alliance to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency. Erik looks at the implications for the US dollar serving as the reserve currency, and what it might mean if the US were to lose this "exorbitant privilege".
