Russell lamberti

Crypto money goes fundamentally change the world. That’s the word of Russell Lamberti, economist and head of ETM Macro Advisors, who thinks the stage is set for a showdown between central banks – and nation-state governments – and the emerging world of distributed cryptocurrencies. and anonymous.

In this episode of the TechCentral podcast, Lamberti talks via Skype from Cape Town about how cryptocurrency could undermine central banks and even end the era of fiat money (monopolized money being legal tender by government decree).

It’s a fascinating look at the historical role of central banks and how cryptocurrencies like bitcoin could transform the monetary landscape and reshape the global economic system.

This is a broad discussion that cuts across everything from government involvement in the ICT sector to the state of the South African economy, and follows a recent detailed presentation that Lamberti gave to the Free Market Foundation in Johannesburg.

It’s a podcast you dare not miss!
