Episode 3
Systems at Risk

Craig Pirrong, Professor of Finance and Director, Global Energy Management Institute, Bauer College of Business University of Houston

Craig Pirrong

This morning we’re driving to the intersection of energy, commodities and risk with University of Houston, C.T. Bauer College of Business Professor, Craig Pirrong.

Pirrong’s extensive research focuses on the economics of commodity markets, the relation between market fundamentals and commodity price dynamics — and the implications of this relation for the pricing of commodity derivatives.

If you’re interested in hearing two economists discuss Wednesday’s CFTC roundtable discussion on the FTX proposal, you won’t want to miss this episode.

This week’s headlines aside, we’re tapping into Craig’s expertise for his take on what tools and technologies could push us toward more secure and smarter markets.
