The David Finch Public Lecture 2017

Safe real interest rates in advanced economies have declined by more than 6% since 1980, revealing a major increase in the demand for safe assets. This lecture explores the sources and consequences of this safe asset 'scarcity' for global imbalances, economic activity, currency wars, financial stability and the future of the international monetary system.
