Episode 6: Escaping the Global Banking Cartel
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts.
In “Escaping the Global Banking Cartel,” Andreas asks why we are familiar with the cartels in drugs and oil, but rarely acknowledge one of the largest cartels in the world: banking. In the last episode, “The Currency Wars,” he talked about Bitcoin providing an exit to those suffering from currency crises in their countries. Now he analyses recent (though often unacknowledged) history with the 2008 financial crisis, the corrupt revolving door with regulators, how kleptocracy is destroying democracy, and why Bitcoin matters as an exit when voice is no longer an option.
This talk took place on November 10th 2018 as part of the ‘Internet of Money’ tour at the Edmonds Center for the Arts near Seattle, Washington.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
