You may remember the fictional character “Q” in the old James Bond films. “Q” was the head of Q Branch–the fictional research and development division of the British Secret Service that devised all of those incredible gadgets for spies. His speech was so articulate that he was almost a parody of intelligent Englishmen. “Q” was “veddy British”.
Unlike “Q,” Alasdair MacLeod not a fictional character. He’s a writer, pundit, and student of global economics.
However, like “Q,” Alasdair is “veddy British,” “veddy articulate,” and “veddy intelligent”. In fact, he could play “Q” in the modern James Bond films.
Alasdair MacLeod has an extraordinary, almost encyclopedic grasp of global economics and politics. Every time Greg Hunter asked a question, Alasdair had an automatic, articulate, and often concise answer. He’s a brilliant communicator.
If you want to hear a classical Englishman speak who has “connected the dots” in global economics, this interview is for you.
