Our Comment

"Dimitri's already distinguished career has seen him explore many of the causes and symptoms of dysfunction in financial markets. As comfortable discussing the technical specificity of these drivers as he is the policy implications they throw up, his insights are not to be missed for audiences wishing to grapple with the complexity of global economics and market variability."
