In this episode, I sit down with John Morrison.  John is an economist and risk manager and currently a Director at Credit Suisse.  John is not only one of the smartest people I know, but he is also a great story teller.  He possesses the ability to explain complex phenomena in ways that make them easy to understand. 

 

We talk about:

 

-The 2007-08 Global Financial Crisis, its causes, and John’s front-line perspective;
-Whether or not the global financial system has gotten any safer;
-Where the next financial crisis may emanate;
-Whether or not it is possible to predict a financial crisis;
-”Shadow banking”
-Innovations and trends like virtual currencies, bitcoin and the blockchain technology;
-Moving to a cashless society;
-Some film recommendations – John is a film buff
