Funny Money: How We've Created "Unsustainable Systems"

Real VisionDecember 03, 2021
In a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Dirtnap editor Jared Dillian, Bullion Reserve co-founder Simon Mikhailovich warns that globalization, financialization, and virtualization may be steering us down a perilous path. The contrarian investor draws parallels between his experiences growing up in the Soviet Union to the current political and economic climate in the U.S. Mikhailovich warns about the “gamification” of investing via trading platforms, which he likens to lottery machines. Mikhailovich also hints about a brave new world where current supply chain snafus may cause companies to reconsider long-standing, outsourcing practices, arguing that a geopolitical realignment with China may be underway.

Breedlove vs. Green: Hard Money, Bitcoin, and Political Failings
This is your chance to benefit from an exchange of ideas between two brilliant modern thinkers. Mike Green, chief strategist and portfolio manager at Simplify Asset Management, is a well-known Bitcoin bear. On the other hand, Robert Breedlove, founder of the “What Is Money?” podcast, is one of its most vehement proponents. Their disagreements originate from deeper convictions surrounding the proper methods of organizing society and the economy: Laissez-Faire versus centrally planned. Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington moderates this fiery debate between Breedlove and Green on the roles of money and the state. The discussion begins on Bitcoin and weaves into larger political and socio-economic topics within which Bitcoin could play a significant role. Recorded on January 7, 2022.

Back to the Land: Investing in Farms as a High-Yield Inflation Hedge
With equities on uncertain footing, can America’s farmland offer an unorthodox yet high-yield alternative to bonds and gold as an inflation hedge? AcreTrader founder and CEO Carter Malloy thinks that it can. In a fascinating interview with Maggie Lake, Arkansas-based Malloy lays out the argument for diversifying your portfolio by investing in agricultural land, which AcreTrader claims has a 11% average annual return. AcreTrader, he explains, is an online portal for investors that combines a data analytics-fueled approach to identifying suitable properties with word-of-mouth and community-based interface with farmers. Malloy also says that AcreTrader provides investment and support for sustainable agriculture practices. Recorded on January 13, 2022.

Providing Universal Privacy: What is the HOPR Protocol?
Privacy is a topic that can be somewhat confusing within crypto. While Bitcoin can be transacted anonymously, its ledger is public, and privacy is not guaranteed. This system has its benefits, but it’s not the best for storing or transporting sensitive information at the individual or corporate level. Sebastian Bürgel, founder of HOPR, is bolstering one of the core founding pillars of crypto, using blockchain to preserve anonymity. He and his team at HOPR are aiming to implement a blockchain solution that keeps the importance of privacy at the forefront. The use cases in the privacy-blockchain realm are numerous and continue to grow. Bürgel, as a founder and programmer himself, gives viewers a technologist’s insights into a rich and growing field. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on January 10, 2022.
