Few investors have the prescience of this week's Financial Thought Leader guest. Long before the 2008/2009 financial crisis he identified the powerful and destructive rise of what he called the "Shadow Banking System", the unregulated institutions funding the housing and credit bubble.  He also coined the phrase "Minsky Moment", after the economist Hyman Minsky's theory that financial stability ultimately leads to financial instability, as people and institutions take on more risk. That is exactly what happened.  This week’s WEALTHTRACK guest is legendary bond trader, Federal Reserve watcher and economist, Paul McCulley who spent many years in the top ranks of bond giant PIMCO. What financial forces does he see gathering now?
