What happens when an upheaval so massive forces financial markets, governments, and society to rethink how our systems work? Michael Krieger, author of the Liberty Blitzkrieg, joins Real Vision to explain what coronavirus and the response to the outbreak has revealed about the condition of American systems – from financial markets to the health care system. Tracing the story of financial markets and societal trends over the past two decades, Krieger outlines how our systems have been pushed to the brink – focusing on emergency policy responses and the everything bubble. He also provides viewers with potential solutions to the systemic decay that has been brought to the forefront by the coronavirus outbreak.

Michael Krieger is the creator and editor of Liberty Blitzkrieg.  Michael attended college at Duke University where he earned a double major in Economics and Spanish. After completing his studies in 2000, he took a job at Lehman Brothers where he worked in the Equity Research Department. In 2005, he joined Sanford C. Bernstein where he served as the Commodities Analyst on the trading floor. Over time, Michael no longer felt satisfied working within the industry and he resigned in January 2010. At that point, he started a family investment office and focused on writing macro pieces on economic, social and geopolitical topics. He gradually recognized that his true passion centers upon writing on issues of significant societal importance given the extremely challenging times we live in. This realization culminated with the launching of Liberty Blitzkrieg in 2012.
