38 Comments on The World Is Changing Before Our Eyes – Mike Maloney w/ Patrick Byrne (Part 1)

  1. This mess that is escalating around Iran will lead to a massive spike in oil price. I cannot imagine this will blow over as if nothing happened for the world economy.

    • I truly hope this does not escalate, Iran is a beautiful country. If the US goes in there, they have one less friend!!!!!

    • Motorcitymadman. Finally, some one who understands that most of the electricity for electric cars comes from fossil fuelled power stations, by the way here’s a math problem to solve, we have 7 billion people on this planet, if we change all our tractors, combines etc to horses, how many horses will we need to cultivate the land to grow crops, and how much methane will these “green” power units put into the atmosphere by farting which is a byproduct of a biological unit converting energy into effort.

    • +Bill 1314 two horses such as in a horse-drawn tractor actually produce less methane and carbon dioxide then Automotive vehicles. However the food it would take to feed that many horses produces far more greenhouse gases than Automotives.

    • +Bill 1314 Correct. The real polluters are Governments and Corporations. Think Fukushima,Camp Lejeune, Nuclear testing in the desert, leaking Nuclear reactors all over. GM, FORD, Chrysler burying waste, dumping of oil into the oceans, Drugs in our water supply, big pharma and Agriculture chemicals in our food and water. That is real pollution but gets 0 attention on the news.

    • Such a blanket statement. It depends on how you power it. With the electric car there are options and many ways to power it clean that gas doesn’t have. For example wind power, solar power, tidal power.

    • POTUS, OPEC, Halliburton, that’s 15 seconds from the top of my head, FIFA, NFL, WWE. If the SEC were the most corrupt org in the whole world, then the world isn’t that bad. The world is far worse than anyone can imagine. Central banks.

    • Gold market cap 8 Trillion. Crypto market cap 180 Billion. Gold standard??? Crypto standard??? Mass adoption???

    • Negativily. Because cryptos are a black hole for fiat currency creation. It will help hide the hyper inflation. The masses will be fooled are will rush into them instead of real. Money silver and gold

    • +silverslave333 Barely, perhaps.
      The people that have a lot of money want to preserve and safeguard it, or make more of it through more conventional and conservative means.
      These people generally are older people. 99% of these people doesnt like crypto and when the panic hits isnt even set up to buy in to it. They will not buy a digital asset that is not unique, has no history and has never been through a market cycle.
      When the big and old money tries to rush into perceived save havens, the crypto’s might catch a miniscule amount relative to what gold and us treasury bonds will.
      This will be so insignificant it really is of no consequence worth mentioning.
      For the money that is in crypto, or looking at crypto , the vast vast majority of it is speculative money from often young people (with barely any or no experience investing or weathering through cycles) trying to make a quick gain, not preserve or protect what they have many of these people dont have much money to begin with and wont have piles of cash on hand to double down on crypto as a crisis unfolds.
      While again im not saying you are wrong, this is of no significance just a matter of logic and common sense.
      In the future, and im not talking next month or next year it might become different, but that is not yet on the horizon.
      Kind regards.

    • +Scientific Methodology : gold.market cap . Isn’t 8 trillion smh . It’s 8 billion . Gold and global population is about the same.

  2. You’re absolutely right Patrick, India is a bureaucratic nightmare!!! Just imagine how successful India could be…

    • Adrian Segura first off how do you know I’m not stacking silver already? I’m playing both sides bud, Mona didn’t raise no fool. Fiat will eventually die and the cash will be silver gold copper along with crypto’s. They will compliment each other. If not you still own stake in both.

  3. Squatter rights would be the terminology for people wanting to claim their entitlement to their housing in the shanty towns. Great interview by the way thank you to both of you. God bless.

  4. I guess that you have just highlighted the main reason why DL tech will never be applied to the core systems that are currently controlled by politicians and civil servants. It *can’t* be corrupted… Q.E.D.

  5. In Egypt, you have to go to 55 different agencies to open a business, and over 75% of people live outside the system.

  6. The kryptonite to a 150+ year old international family banking cartel, is and always has been, a Bankrun…..That’s why (I believe) why all fiat currencies have always ended with the public reverting back to gold and silver…..because Bankruns (or possibilities of one) keep the family cartel in check…That’s also why a Cashless Society/World Digital Currency is such a goal of theirs….No cash, no bankruns. Let’s all invest in real physical money, that they can’t fractionally reserve lend.. instead of a digital world..that they would love nothing more than to have.

  7. Nice to hear sane suggestions after hearing Mz. Warren talk about free Higher education and AOC talk about The Green New Steal. I think some on the extreme left have lost their sensibilities and are throwing Hail Marys to get attention.
