En route to Kilkenomics: a Bond Vigilantes and Episode Blog video

While en route to the Kilkenomics festival, Jim Leaviss, Eric Lonergan and Tristan Hanson discussed some pressing issues over a pint in Dublin’s Kehoes pub. In this series of three short videos, they share their thoughts on why economies are still struggling to generate inflation, whether interest rates can finally start to rise, inequality and the rise of nationalism, global debt levels and implications of all of these for markets. Cheers!
