Presentation: The Safe Asset Shortage

3 days of the “Europe in Crisis” conference in Madison, WI have come to a close.  A fantastic conference with even better speakers—ranging from Gillian Tett of the Financial Times to Chad Bown of the Peterson Institute, and everyone in between.  Great insights on Brexit, the euro crisis, populism, and more.  I presented on Europe’s safe asset shortage and the mechanisms by which it is hindering the economic recovery. (Slides below.) Thanks to all the attendees, speakers, and conference organizers (European Horizons) for the great conference.
