Infecting the Financial Markets

Dr. George Calhoun

The earliest days of the pandemic struck the financial markets for losses of between 30% and 40% of their value. What is really happening in the financial markets? What do the signals coming out of the market represent, and what do they mean for investors and the system as a whole? It’s clear the system is being stripped of its myths and “standard explanations” as we gain a better understanding of how markets and economies really work. This talk will sort out some of the knowns, unknowns, and unknown unknowns of the current crisis.
