Patrick Byrne: Why Cryptocurrencies Matter

They make freedom from the central banking cartel possible
Sunday, July 30, 2017, 3:28 PM

This week we talk with Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, and rare courageous voice within corporate America raising concern that powerful interests on Wall Street are destroying US companies for profit, robbing investors and destabilizing our financial system in the process. 

Byrne has been an early advocate for digital currencies and their potential to protect financial wealth from the massive policy missteps being undertaken by the Federal Reserve. (In 2014, Overstock.com became the first major retailer to accept Bitcoin payments.) 

In this week's podcast, Byrne details out the promising potential of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain, as well as his thoughts as to whether they will be able or not to evade subversion by the world central authorities. » Read more

Saying it's been a busy week and half on the central bank front is perhaps a sizeable understatement. 

First, the Swiss National Bank stunned the world (and its brethren central banks) by removing its peg to the Euro. This was quickly followed by Mario Draghi finally making good on his longtime threat of firing QE bazooka, announcing that the ECB will pursue a 60 billion Euro per month easing program for the next 16 months. And amidst all the smoke, the Canadian central bank snuck in a surprise rate cut to its interest rate.

To make sense of both the "Why?" behind these extreme moves, as well as the "What?" in terms of their implications, Axel Merk, founder and Chief Investment Officer of Merk Funds joins us this week. » Read more

How Things Unravel

Slowly, and then all at once.
Wednesday, January 29, 2014, 11:46 PM

In a recent article, I noted the various signs that things are unraveling at the periphery. In the comments that followed, plenty of people (myself included) expressed the belief that the various Powers That Be are doing everything they can to limit the damage as much as possible.

After a full weekend of burning up the phone lines and the midnight oil, the central banks of the world seemed to have calmed things down a bit by Tuesday (1/28/14), as evidenced by directional reversals in the prices of various currencies, gold, and stocks.  Everything that needed to head back the way it came, from a central banker perspective, was headed back in the "right" direction. » Read more
