Is bitcoin price really driven by volume?

I have seen the coinsummit panel with Susan Athey, Jonathan Levy and Andreas Antonopoulos about the future of bitcoin. As usual, big quotes from Andreas about regulators and banks ;)
I'm interested in the final discussion between Susan and Jonathan about the hypothesis of bitcoin price driven by volume.

Susan states that she has found evidences of this, while Jonathan states the opposite.
Any thoughts on this?
