Guy’s Take #62 – Dear Peter Zeihan…

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.

“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust.” – Satoshi Nakamoto
