    63: AMERICAN KLEPTOCRACY Greatest Money Laundering Scheme in History with Casey Michel

    63: AMERICAN KLEPTOCRACY Greatest Money Laundering Scheme in History with Casey Michel

    Jason Hartman invites Casey Michel, author and investigative journalist, to speak about his new book which uncovers how the US has created the greatest money laundering scheme in history.
    South Dakota has pioneered an entire industry of what they call anonymous trusts. South Dakota has taken this to a magnitude we've never seen by creating perpetual anonymity for these trusts. The information of those in the trust will never be shared with governments, with other jurisdictions, tax authorities, investigators, which is why we've seen both Americans and non Americans flocking to South Dakota. $900 billion is the top line estimate in South Dakota, but it's still a question of how many total assets are actually there, who those assets are connected to and what those assets are actually doing after they pass through all the anonymity that the state of South Dakota freely offers.
    Casey Michel’s book also talks about illicit foreign money purchasing steel mills, factories and manufacturing plants in places like Cleveland, Ohio, the Rust Belt and the Midwest. They're not revitalizing local communities and bringing jobs back, but rather using those assets to hold and hide funds, using them as part of a broader transnational money laundering scheme. And so what ends up happening is that not only do the jobs never come back, the folks who have the remaining jobs are just laid off, the factories begin falling apart and it’s clear they are never going to come back. These local communities in places such as West Virginia, Kentucky, Texas and Illinois are seeing their economic crown jewels go to complete rot because of this system of kleptocracy.
    Towards the end of the broader Cold War period, one could see a sudden surge in the creation of financial secrecy pools and broader economic structuring that incentivized the outflow of illicit suspect wealth from post communist states. These states are linked directly to rising oligarchies and dictatorships that are smothering local populations, looting national treasuries, and making sure bridges, roads, hospitals and schools are never built. And then beyond that, there is no broader free market economy that actually develops in those countries. http://www.caseymichel.com/

    62: How the Fed is FAILING You - with Joseph Brown, Founder of Heresy Financial

    62: How the Fed is FAILING You - with Joseph Brown, Founder of Heresy Financial

    What happens when the money supply is expanding more than ever, the government is more indebted than it's ever been and interest rates are at the lowest they've ever been? Find out with Jason Hartman and the founder of Heresy Financial, Joseph Brown as they discuss this and much more!
    We are seeing the largest monetary expansion in US history which has triggered some very high inflation numbers. The last two years have given the government an excuse to start monetizing a ton of government debt by printing money. This is a top down financing tool for redirecting purchasing power, instead of creating new purchasing power, and leads to a misallocation of resources due to the unlimited purchasing power at the top. This misallocation causes the destruction of wealth and will eventually lead to financial repression. And so, the question is not a matter of if the Federal Reserve will spark a crash, but the question is when and how much before they reverse course.

A Must for Crypto Fans

For all things crypto, Jason is my go to man! The world of cryptocurrency is huge, and is ideal for me to learn without putting my personal savings at risk. Thank you for having this great and informative concept.

FinancialMinion ,

Best crypto podcast

I've been trying to find good crypto content, and this one has everything I've been looking for! Amazing guests and information that help me as an investor...

Michael v Verdi ,

Has Potential

I’ve listened to 5 of the episodes now and think I have a decent feel for the content. Mr. Hartman does a pretty good job at interviewing guests and has a good presence. But, I think sometimes he cuts in too quickly and should let the guests finish their thoughts.

Also, the episode topics sound promising however that actual content is too surface level. There is hardly an explanation of how blockchain or cryptocurrencies are solving the problems that the episode titles allude to.

There are some good philosophical discussions around tech companies and your data / your right to free speech etc.

Hope the host can dive deeper into topics and show how blockchain is working to fix!
