Video Interview: Secrets of a Fund Manager, Economist and Author

In this interview we explore my views on the economy, technology, Bitcoin, my forthcoming book “Escape from the Central Bank Trap” and many other things. I hope you like it. Thanks for watching!


Created by Derin Cag this simple but not simplistic and easy to follow 26 minute, interview answers many questions by Daniel Lacalle, arguably among the world’s leading experts on economics and investing.

Daniel Lacalle is no uncritical apologist for economists: he understands how capitalism could be both fruitful and good. Discover Lacalle's favourite business experience to date and his advice to new economists and fund managers. Find out whether the economic implications of technological advances excite or worry him and the things he would change if he were the Prime Minister of the UK or President of the United States for a week.

This interview also covers Bitcoin, where Lacalle talks about manipulated currencies vs. non-manipulated currencies. Discover which one Lacalle prefers and whether he likes Adam Smith or John Maynard Kenyes. Also, uncover Daniel Lacalle's long-term predictions for the world economy in 2030.

Daniel Lacalle also talks about his upcoming book "Escape From The Central Bank Trap" and his best-selling books “Life In The Financial Markets” (Wiley) and “The Energy World Is Flat” (Wiley, 2014, with D. Parrilla).

Based on Lacalle's practical template for understanding the economy, which he developed over the course of his career, this video also breaks down some economic concepts, allowing viewers to learn the basic driving forces behind the economy, which economic policies Daniel Lacalle prefers and why "this time it's different".
