Ramaswamy and Carlson spoke for about 45 minutes and touched on a variety of topics, ranging from foreign policy – specifically Russia, Ukraine, and China – to domestic issues, including the economy, Hunter Biden’s legal woes, and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks:

Around 12 minutes into the conversation, Carlson asked the 37-year-old entrepreneur, who is the youngest GOP presidential candidate in history, for his prognosis on the economy and if he is “concerned about … a real economic reset in the next year?” 

Ramaswamy gave a grim forecast, saying he is “quite concerned,” and pointed to a “deeply inverted yield curve” in his explanation:

I think that 2024 is going to be a year where  – it’s not going to take a lot of guts for me to make this prediction because I’ll tell you what’s easy to make – we’re on the cusp of a major economic downturn next year.

Long-run interest rates on long-run bonds are higher compared to interest rates on short-run bonds because there would be a higher risk of being repaid back. That’s how things are supposed to work.

And there are lots of complicated reasons for why, and economists can debate it, but what’s not debatable is that that’s exactly what happens. That’s where we are now, which is why we’re, I think, in the calm before the storm.
