Show Notes

How much economic ignorance can you fit into 1 minute and 54 seconds? Well apparently its quite a lot. Peter Zeihan confidently embarrassed himself on Joe Rogan's podcast recently by going on a short rip regarding Bitcoin's negative value and how a reliable, fixed money causes economic disaster but the inflated, debt drowned political currency is more valuable. And how counterfeiters have rightfully earned the wealth they steal, but savers gaining some purchasing power as the economy grows is "unviable." We dive into a short clip of Peter Zeihan and take it apart, piece by ignorant piece, in today's Guy's Take episode. Strap in. Here are the links to so many other reads for diving further into these economic ideas if you want a deeper understanding.
