In “Outside the Golden Cage of Banking," Andreas covers the history of financial regulation in the United States, and how banks became the cop of last resort in countries around the world. In the last episode, he prompted you to think about combating the politics of fear. Echoing previous talks like “Money as a System of Control,” he also questions why we have come to accept totalitarian surveillance in our financial lives while protesting against other invasions of privacy. Finally, he argues that Bitcoin will thrive outside the golden cage of the banking cartel.
This talk took place on June 27th 2019 at the Munich Bitcoin Meetup in Munich, Germany.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
