"Everyone can create money; the problem is to get it accepted" - Hyman Minsky

It is a great pleasure to join the inaugural Scottish Economics Conference, which brings together students from six universities with proud intellectual traditions.  I would like to congratulate the students who have shown such initiative in creating this event.  My only regret is that the '#BeastFromTheEast' has prevented me from joining you in person, though given my topic, there is something appropriate about joining you virtually.
