Nick Giambruno: The Current World Order is Breaking Down

Tom welcomes back Nick Giambruno, founder of The Financial Underground and Editor-in-Chief of the Contra Speculator. Nick notes that the current U.S. world order is breaking down, and the future remains uncertain. He compares governments to crime families and points out that bonds are just an extension of the fiat system. He goes on to emphasize that money is a technology used to send value across time and space, and that government involvement in the monetary system is unnecessary. He adds that only a small subset of the population understand the importance of hard money, and that politicians often don’t understand money either, which leads to inflationary tendencies.

Regarding the move towards CBDC’s, Nick believes it is more of a desperate last move to maintain the status quo. He explains that the definition of inflation has been manipulated and that the CPI metrics are more akin to propaganda. As such, people will need to find alternative places to store their wealth; gold, Bitcoin, and real estate being potential options. Nick explains that both gold and Bitcoin have resistance to debasement, gold having a long history of 5000 years and Bitcoin having coded annual production that declines. He adds that while gold has portability, Bitcoin is superior in that regard. All in all, Nick believes that both gold and Bitcoin will compete with each other on their monetary attributes in the long-term.
