I think that is the realty and that is what we grapple with all the time that after the 2008 crisis the way money has been unleashed into the world and the constant printing of money, it has been raised to bottom for every developed … [Read more...] about Markets grappling with excess liquidity: Manish Chokhani, Director, Enam Holdings
