TDI Episode 222: China’s Ponzi Scheme and Under $10 Stocks (Curzio and Katsenelson)

Guests: Frank Curzio and Vitaliy Katsenelson have some interesting thoughts on the state of economics in China an around the world. Frank covers the small-cap, low-priced stock universe and we get some good ideas from him on that subject. Vitaliy is really sour on China.
