Professor Robert Engle's research on how geopolitical risk affects financial markets is referenced
— January 13, 2020
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Engle isn’t so sure that geopolitical risk in markets is all that high right now. In his work, he analyzes the factors driving cross-asset and cross-country volatility. When something affects all asset classes across countries, the cause is likely to be geopolitical. By his measure, such international events haven’t been particularly severe at all in recent years."
