Pat Parkinson is a senior fellow at the Bank Policy Institute and project director for the Group of Thirty’s Working Group on Treasury Market Liquidity. In this episode, Pat discusses the Treasury market meltdown in March 2020 and the Group of Thirty’s recommendations to address key Treasury market fragilities. Specifically, Pat explains why the Federal Reserve’s standing repo facility, launched on July 28, 2021, is not sufficient to prevent future dysfunction in the Treasury market.
