David Morgan: Tyranny & The Looming Threat of CBDCs
Tom rejoins silver investor David Morgan to discuss Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). David has already done 30 podcasts examining crypto including possible ties between bankers, elites and the cryptocurrency world. He suggests banking elites desire to control the system via CBDCs is rooted in a reluctance to allow citizens to escape established systems.
China’s CBDC system is functioning successfully, becoming a model for other countries. Governments are expert at economic manipulation, said David, which is why he implores people to contact their representatives directly and express apprehension towards a crypto-central bank initiative. He acknowledges asset-backed cryptocurrencies offer a possible alternative, since they are still under the government’s radar.
Opting out of the current financial system is a viable option, but asset backed investments are still small relative to the overall financial system. David doesn’t expect anything major to disrupt the system over the summer, so gold is likely to remain quiet. Money holds power, but ultimately freedom is more important. This is why efforts to disrupt status quo are so important.
