Will “Zombified” Markets Lead to a Global Liquidity Crunch?

In their 2021 book “Market Tremors: Quantifying Structural Risks in Modern Financial Markets,” co-authors Hari Krishnan and Real Vision’s own Ash Bennington argue that price-discovery mechanisms have been “zombified” by central bank policy, over-regulation of commercial banks, and the proliferation of vehicles such as ETFs. Mike Green speaks with Hari and Ash to explore their hypothesis against the backdrop of rising geopolitical instability, with war unfolding in Eastern Europe, and the corresponding threat to global liquidity. Mike, Hari, and Ash also talk about how and where investors can find safety (and even opportunity) in the context of heightened stress on global credit and equity markets.
