In part one of a two-part, exclusive Wealth Manager interview, DoubleLine Capital Chief Investment Officer Jeffrey Gundlach discusses with Editor in Chief Kate McBride the state of the fixed income markets, including "government stimulus programs," tax increases, and the impact of "11 million" homeowners in default.

Gundlach was early to call attention to serious problems in the credit markets in early 2007, calling the mortgage markets an "unmitigated disaster," at that time.
