Niall Ferguson -- Investing at the Intersection of History, Politics, and Markets
Niall Ferguson, a senior fellow at The Hoover Institution at Stanford, is widely respected as a premier thought leader when it comes to combining historical, political, and economic perspectives to understand markets. In this interview with New York Times best-selling author and The Bear Traps Report founder Larry McDonald, Ferguson argues that COVID-19 and social revolution are both symptoms of a networked world and that although comparing 1968 and 2020 can be useful for historical comparison, it is certainly not one-to-one. As well, Ferguson and McDonald discuss probable political outcomes for 2020 and debate the great question of whether inflation and the market paradigm shifts that result from it are finally on the horizon.
