Jeff Booth: Accountability Via Deflation and Decentralization
Jeff Booth, author of "The Price of Tomorrow: Why Deflation is the Key to an Abundant Future," joins Real Vision CEO and co-founder Raoul Pal to discuss the coming monetary revolution—one that will change the nature of institutional power, driven by Bitcoin. Booth and Pal build a vivid outline of all the problems and paradoxes that exist in our current systems of money and government. Brainstorming potential fallout, Booth makes the case for Bitcoin to emerge victorious after incumbent systems can no longer handle the pressure. He believes the foundations of our society were doomed to fail from the moment that those in power took control of the printing press. Booth discusses how this corruption seeped into various parts of government and how a deflationary and decentralized currency, like Bitcoin, is a vital necessity in holding the governing class accountable.
