Review of Financial Markets: October 2020

The October issue of Review of Financial Markets features a look at the geopolitics of the global energy transition; Russell Napier's thoughts on Modern Monetary Theory; and whisky valuation
Edited by George Littlejohn MCSI, senior adviser to the CISI


The geopolitics of the global energy transition

Manfred Hafner and Simone Tagliapietra, in a major contribution to the climate debate, harness some of the world’s best brains to focus on how we got to the energy challenge, and the way ahead.

Manfred and Simone have created the definitive guide to the geopolitics of the global energy transition. They teach at distinguished institutions in Europe and North America, notably Johns Hopkins and Sciences Po. They have assembled some two dozen subject experts from around the developed and developing world to focus on the background to the great energy transition, and the requirements that politicians and society will put on our sector and our allies in the Green Finance Education Charter – the accountants, the actuaries, the bankers and so on – to finance it.

There be dragons: the myth of the Deficit Myth

Russell Napier, one of the deepest-thinking investment practitioners, has delivered a masterly onslaught on MMT, in print here and also on CISI TV, arguing that it fails to address the large-scale theft on savers that he believes will inevitably ensue from this thinking.
