This is the last of three sessions on Scott Skyrm’s 2023 book The Repo Market: Shorts, Shortages, and Squeezes.


From the description:

The Repo market is the most important market few people know about. It’s a pillar of the financial system that’s often misunderstood yet plays a vital role in the industry. If the financial markets are the engine that powers the economy, the Repo market is the oil that lubricates that engine.
