#357 – Marko Papic, Clocktower Group - If You Don’t Make Calls, Why Are You In This Industry?

61 minutes

In episode 357, we welcome our guest, Marko Papic, Chief Strategist at the Clocktower Group, an alternative investment asset management firm, where he leads the firm’s Strategy Team, providing bespoke research on geopolitics, macroeconomics, and markets.


In today’s episode, we’re talking geopolitics and the markets. Marko recently released the book Geopolitical Alpha and he shares his framework for understanding how geopolitical events will affect the markets. Then we talk current events and how he views them. We talk about the implications of Evergrande and why Marko does not believe China will try to takeover Taiwan.  Next we talk about the implications of rising food and commodity prices and whether that will cause social unrest around the globe.


As we wind down, we talk about the ESG and sustainability trend and finish by hearing what Marko thinks about inflation, interest rates and the U.S. stock market.


Please enjoy this episode with Clocktower Group’s Marko Papic.
