“Every Four or Five Generations”
This week we looked at two global systems that are getting an overhaul, whether they like it or not. We kicked things off with Dr. Saifedean Ammous, author of the bestsellers The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking and The Fiat Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Human Civilization. The good doctor warned us about the frightening places where central bank digital currencies (CBDC) could take us… and explained why Bitcoin offers an escape hatch. In his view, Bitcoin represents the natural evolution of real money. Next we talked to Byron King about what’s happening in Ukraine and the world’s tepid response. Part of that has been due to the degradation of NATO — an organization that has struggled for a reason to exist ever since the Soviet Union went kaput.
