For interviews on Bitcoin.
Bitcoin prices have surged and investors are predicting that it will go even higher. To discuss, we FEATURE Dr. Gina C. Pieters. Gina is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Trinity University, where her research examines the prices of internationally traded goods. She completed her undergraduate degrees in Physics and Economics at University of California, Santa Cruz, and her PhD. in Economics at the University of Minnesota (after a brief stint in Wall Street). She is currently studying the use of Bitcoin in international markets. Her research shows that Bitcoin can be used to detect market manipulation of official exchange rates (for example: Is China manipulating its exchange rates?), and the consequence of regulations on prices in individual Bitcoin markets.
