ICIS blogger Paul Hodges recently interviewed in MoneyWeek ‘How to invest during the Great Unwind’

“His crystal ball works so much better than everyone else's”

“His crystal ball works so much better than everyone else's”

“The last time I met with Paul Hodges, chairman of International eChem (IeC) and an expert on the economic impact of demographics, he told me that deflation was coming; that we should all buy more gilts; and that if you held shares in Tesco you should dump them."

He was right on all those things. Last year he sent me a report he wrote saying the oil price was about to plummet. He saw it falling to $50 a barrel in the first half of this year. That, clearly, has happened already."
