Soon the GEAB issue of March: Covid-19 and NewParadigm-20

It would be hard not to mention Covid-19 in this coming bulletin. But it’s also hard to think straight and bring the characteristic GEAB perspective into the current media hysteria.

Therefore, it is by this yardstick, with a particular focus on Europe, that we will measure the situation – bearing in mind the limitations inherent in such an exercise, when it is conducted in the midst of a crisis and one is blinded by the dust of combat. In addition to the systemic dimension of the current health crisis, certain aspects of its impact on the financial system will be discussed in detail: risks for the bond market, but also the opportunity for transition to the new monetary and financial system, the advent of which we have been anticipating for 2020 ever since 2018.
