In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “On the Margin,” Michael Ippolito, co-founder, Blockworks, sits down with Danielle DiMartino Booth who brings her deep historical knowledge of the Fed to a wide-ranging discussion of the economy.

Mike and Danielle also cover the evolving role of the Federal Reserve, how the Fed “missed its chance” to normalize markets, the worsening relationship between the US and China, and her opinions on inflation vs deflation.

She began her career in New York at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette and Credit Suisse, where she worked fixed income and the public and private equity markets. She is the author of “Fed Up: An Insider’s Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America.”
