The purpose of this blog is to keep track of my ideas and to share with the world my views on money, banking, financial markets and asset prices. My approach is very much grounded in Professor Mehrling’s ideas which in turn are based on the legacy of Walter Bagehot, John Hicks and Hyman Minsky. The aim is to cut deeply and bring insights about money in simple terms without being simplistic.
