The Case for Deflation Part 4 Liquidity and REPO - E214

In this episode I walk through an understanding of Liquidity and how the actions of the Federal Reserve can't increase liquidity and flow in the economy. I also give a quick definition of the REPO market and interpret it as a money substitute factory - a place that creates and destroys money substitutes. This is the consensus layer of the global financial system and how we need to define what money is. It's money substitutes that flow through the REPO and money markets. Mises on money​...

In Part 3, I answer some critiques and questions from the audience. The discussion on liquidity and Repo, the base layer of the Eurodollar system is now moved to Part 4 coming up soon.

Case for Deflation part 2 - E212

Case for Deflation Part 1 - E211

In part one of this series I describe two important schools of thought on the global monetary system and the future of the dollar: the Dollar Milkshake and the Eurodollar. Then I try to establish a definition for inflation as a monetary phenomenon based on mainstream Milton Friedman, Mises and my own defintition. Lastly, I ask the question if what we think of as monetary expansion today, is actually monetary expansion. In part two, I'll discuss the differences I see between debt based...

General Update, Virus, Dollar, China and Japan - E209

In this episode I discuss the bullish case for bitcoin being driven by QE but not via a weaker dollar. The dollar will continue to strengthen in a volatile way. Bitcoin will be bid because the traditional market will get worse and worse at price discovery and bitcoin will get better and better. I bring in two articles. The first one is about China's consumer credit bubble popping and the second is about primary dealers in Japan refusing to sell their JGB's to the Bank of Japan. That...


A Devalued Government - E208

In this episode I use a tweet by Pierre Rochard and a video from Daniel Hannan as a jumping off point to talk about globalization, the growing distrust in our institutions, non-monetary rewards, and what this current crisis will lead to. Links: Pierre's tweet: "If everyone added to their cash balances during the good times, they wouldn't need to beg politicians and central bankers for bailouts during the bad times. But...


Fed Panic Dollar Melt Up - E206

In this episode, I break the news that the Fed has cut interest rates to zero and launched QE 5. The Fed is not in charge of interest rates, they follow the market. Interest rates were already close to zero in the market, so this move by the Fed was reactionary. They have lost control. I also talk about currency swaps and how to position yourself for the coming financial reset. Image link: News article:...

Externalities of Non-Native Assets - E203

On this episode I walk through a very deep tweet that will help us understand multiple assets on one chain. These I call these non-native assets and they have non-native incentives. I bring in many connected ideas and try to make sense of it all. @BobMcElrath tweet:


Safe Harbor for Scams? - E202

In this episode I talk about the recent proposal to offer a "safe harbor" to ICO scams for 3 years.

Website: Article: NVK's tweet:...


More ETH2.0 Hype After Another Delay - E199

I go through as article from Coindesk that is very misleading about ETH2.0. Don't believe the hype. This is only phase zero they are trying to launch this year. Phase zero does nothing to immediate scale ethereum, it's only a preliminary step in an overly complex 5 year plan for ETH2.0. Website: Article link: Annotated article: Parity client DAO: ...
