Robert Breedlove and I discuss the path to mastering finance, through exploring topics ranging from Bitcoin, peak oil, and the global debt supercycle.

 

Summary: Artificially suppressed interest rates have led to a global debt super cycle, and the concept of equality of outcome is nonsensical.

Key insights

Economic and Financial System Observations

  • The debt super cycle is characterized by artificially suppressed interest rates, leading to a constant decrease in the cost of capital.
  • The central bankers needed something like covid to hit because the system was coming unglued under the hood in late 2019.
  • The artificially suppressed interest rate creates distortions in the marketplace, leading to a global debt super cycle.
  • The concept of deflation is actually beneficial for the economy, leading to more wealth creation and productivity.
  • “Equality of outcome obviously BS. We’re all born different.”
  • “Equality of outcome is a nonsensical concept.”

Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Insights

  • The centralization aspect of eGold led to its downfall, while Bitcoin’s decentralized nature impressed me as 100% market force in action.
  • Bitcoin is the TCP/IP of non-state anti-fiat money, while other cryptocurrencies are more like startup applications rather than decentralized money.
  • Bitcoin’s current penetration is probably less than 2% of Bitcoin’s total addressable market, making the risk reward disproportionately in favor of Bitcoin.
  • The idea of inscribing a name server delegation onto an ordinal and putting it on the blockchain to create uncensorable domain names is intriguing and potentially revolutionary.
