Daniel Lacalle on the Central Bank Tightrope

Daniel Lacalle on Mises Weekends
Daniel Lacalle Jeff Deist

Our great friend Daniel Lacalle, author of Escape from the Central Bank Trap, joins the show to discuss the perilous condition facing central banks after a decade of their own malfeasance.

Daniel and Jeff discuss absurd reactions to the Fed’s tiny interest rate hikes, the fragility of central bank policy in the face of enormous sovereign, corporate, and household debt, why expansionary monetary policy always hurts poor people, and what the Fed and ECB might do– realistically– under current conditions. This is a must-listen interview with one of the best and most visible central bank critics.
