Welcome, Barry, to my podcast. It's such a great honour to have you on because I followed your work during my entire career, for most of my investment banking research career at least. I spent a lot of time looking at foreign exchange. I would always look forward to any work that you produce on FX. I view you as one of the authorities on currencies and foreign exchange and exchange arrangements and so on.
Barry Eichengreen (03:18):
It's good to be here.
