There’s a run on the banks! And finally, the Federal Reserve is in the hot seat, but maybe not for the reasons it should be.
Today we talk to Matthew Mežinskis, macro-analyst extraordinaire, OG Bitcoiner, purveyor of Porkopolis Economics, and host of the long-running Crypto Voices podcast.
You may have seen his beautiful charts on Twitter, giving great macro data on Bitcoin adoption, dollar monetary base, and the actual figure of both base money and “fiduciary media” out in the world.
We discuss why long-term government bonds are doomed to fail, how banks and the Fed will respond, the threat of CBDCs (real and imagined), Balaji’s $1 million Bitcoin bet, compare some Bitcoin trends in both the European Union and the United States.
