Professor John Turner and Dr William Quinn of Queen’s University Belfast were my guests on today’s show. They are the authors of the recent book, Boom and Bust: A Global History of Financial Bubbles, which has been critically acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal, The Times Literary Supplement, and the Irish Times, and was named an Economics Book of the Year for 2020 by the Financial Times. With so much talk about inflation, bubbles, cryptocurrency, and an impending financial crash, this felt like the perfect opportunity to get them on the show. We even covered some Evergrande and China details that many people are missing.
