During the episode, Max Keiser explained his term cantillionaire: "The term 'cantillionaire' came out of my frustration that people getting this money first are called 'elite'. You would never describe a flesh-eating amoeba as 'elite'. This is how you have to understand cantillionaries."

He also said that "Software has transformed everything in everyone's lives now for a few decades. The last holdout that hasn't been utterly transformed by software was money itself."

"It always confuses me how people can be racist when they are getting *****by the Fed just like we are," added Isaiah Jackson.
