After a successful career on Wall Street, Danielle DiMartino Booth spent years as special adviser to Richard Fisher while he was head of the Dallas Fed. In her role, she provided an invaluable, markets-based perspective to one of the most independent-thinkers to have served in a leadership position at the Federal Reserve. What’s more, she did so during one of the most tumultuous periods in the central bank’s history: The Great Financial Crisis. In this interview, Danielle discusses the evolution of the Fed through that period and how the policies developed and implemented then have played a role in everything from inequality and social unrest to asset bubbles and inflation. She also lays out several of the potential outcomes facing investors and citizens alike as the result of the fiscal dominance and monetization of the debt we are seeing today.
