Ben Hunt On the Future of Money, Crypto, And Political power

Ben Hunt is the author of Epsilon Theory, which is a newsletter and website that examines markets through the lenses of game theory and history. In this wide-ranging discussion, Ben discusses what the US government's response to the COVID-19 crisis revealed about those in power and why we need to take a different approach to hedging against catastrophic risk. He shares his affinity for what crypto stands for and his fear that its focus on money will inevitably lead the powers that be to co-opt it. Lastly, he shares his belief that the recent actions from Central Banks around the world is simply the beginning of governments re-writing the definition of money to support political power.
