Macro Musings Podcast: Greg Ip (Podcast)

by: David Beckworth

My latest Macro Musings podcast is with Greg Ip, chief economics commentator for the Wall Street Journal. We covered a number of topics, including how he got into macro journalism (his mom was a central banker, and Nick Rowe was one of his college teachers!), his new book and its implications for macroeconomic policy, the difference between helicopter drops and QE, negative interest rates, the safe asset shortage problem, and current Fed policy.

I really enjoyed my conversation with Greg. He is a great conversationalist with a wide range of knowledge on macroeconomic issues. You will enjoy his insights.
