What Will Cause the Next U.S. Recession?

This video by Gary Shilling shares that recessions are caused by either the Fed raising rates or financial shocks.  While Mr. Shilling doesn't see any major financial shocks, except perhaps emerging  market dollar denominated debt, he does think the Fed raising rates is a good possibility.
