A new week begins, full of central bank announcements from the Bank of England to the Bank of Japan. Right on time too, as volatility appears to be returning to the stockmarket with a vengeance…
In today’s episode, Nickolai and I discuss:
- The Bank of Japan is years ahead of the other central banks in the world in its money printing efforts – but what will happen when it runs out of things to buy?
- Germany’s ability to spend money is constantly referenced as the eurozone’s saviour in any crisis. But can it be relied upon to do this, and even if it tried, would it be fast enough?
- Following a grand response from readers, we now have a splendid array of possible names for the eurozone’s proposed “bad bank”. But who will pay the price for the alchemy it promises to deliver?
- And do Brits really care about Brexit any more? Nickolai wants to know: email@example.com.
All this and more, in our first episode of the week. Click here to tune in.
All the best,
Editor, Capital & Conflict
