This is OK, but read King's book!

In that case (2016) the book was The End of Alchemy, here in audio form. This interview is a rather shallow glimpse of it. End of Alchemy stands among the maybe three best books I've heard on audible (and I've heard hundreds and hundreds since 2011, having reviewed around 550 of them. The other two favorites would be Fragile By Design and The Forgotten Depression).

Oh, and King's new book (which apparently builds on these earlier concepts) is Radical Uncertainty, to be released March 17, 2020. Rest assured I will buy and devour it on Day One.

An amazingly erudite and insightful man!

Wonderful interview with a wide ranging and informative discussion from one of the most thoughtful central bankers anywhere!

Worth a listen if considering getting Merv's book.

Mervyn explains what's in his book The End of Alchemy. And just as interesting, he talks about what he is reading and recommends some books he has read.
