Prior to the Thanksgiving Day holiday we had a chance to catch up with long time blogger Joe Weisenthal (@TheStalwart), Deputy Editor of Business Insider, on StockTwits TV.  As always it was a pleasure to talk with Joe.  We started off the discussion with an examination of recent comments by prominent economist David Rosenberg, including the pitfalls of being wedded to any particular opinion on the economy and/or markets.  We then shifted to the situation in Europe and asking whether the Euro can remain in place over the long run.  Finishing up we discussed the reserve status of the US dollar especially in light of the rise in China.  You can view the video in its entirety below:
