All of it comes full circle, after the dialog the video ends with a musical montage that reveals us footage of all the things that occurred in our first post about Salinas’ visit to El Salvador. We see the ambassador to america, Milena Mayorga, obtain the billionaire. We see the trio and Samson Mow go to the volcano the place El Salvador is bitcoin mining.

Anyway, let’s get to the bitcoin content material. 

Bitcoin Is Creating The Chaos

Immediately’s session begins with a deal with. Max Keiser solutions what we deemed “the best questions of the whole conference” Bitcoin 2022. That’s: “Is Bitcoin inflicting the chaos on the planet, or reacting to the chaos?” What does Keiser thinks about his personal query? He informed Salinas and us:

“To me it looks like Bitcoin isn’t reacting to the chaos, however bitcoin is inflicting the chaos. As a result of, bitcoin modifications individuals (…) It’s a mirror the place, in the event you’re an individual with decency in your coronary heart, you grow to be extra first rate, and you concentrate on doing different benevolent issues. In case you’re an individual who’s acquired a coronary heart that’s not effectively , and you’re envious. It makes you extra envious, it makes you worse.”

To not be outshined, Ricardo Salinas shoots a dire prediction relating to the standard marketplace for the following few years:

“What’s occurring to the fiat world is a shame. Now, individuals which can be anticipating a pension are going to be defrauded of their pension.

Ricardo Salinas On Presiden Bukele

“He’s clearly a really sharp man, he’s younger, and he’s achieved these extraordinary issues. So, I have to have a greater sense of the particular person. As a result of, no matter he says or does on media, it’s not the identical particular person,” Salinas stated about El Salvador’s president. The 2 would meet one or two days later. Salinas elaborated:

“I wish to perceive what he desires to do and the way he plans to do it. I wish to hear it from him. However clearly his capability to do issues in a different way is clear (…) And you understand this factor of getting Bitcoin being authorized tender in El Salvador, that modifications issues utterly, as a result of now it’s not simply an asset, now it’s actual cash. At the least in that jurisdiction.”

Ricardo Salinas And The Downside With Democracy

In an especially optimistic second, Max Keiser describes the present scenario. “It appears to me that there’s an epic battle between fiat cash, evil, and Bitcoin cash, which is the most effective soundest cash ever, it’s good. It’s good versus evil”. Ricardo Salinas isn’t so certain, as a result of in the present day’s system is backed by democracy. “This evil of fiat cash fraud is being sustained by a democratic course of, and it’s being voted into energy on daily basis,” Salinas says convincingly.  “That’s the issue with democracy, (…) majority rule is not any enjoyable”.

When questioned about “The Bitcoin Customary,” the e book we’re studying in the Bitcoinist Book Club, Salinas declares it to be completely spot on in regards to the Austrian College of Economics’ view of the world over the Keynesian one. “I believe the historic perspective is very helpful. (…) This can be a must-read not solely to grasp Bitcoin, however to grasp the fiat fraud, as a result of it’s a must to perceive each,” Salinas additionally claims.

When questioned about Peter Shiff and his father, gold bugs till the tip, Salinas remains to be respectful of the earlier king. “Having gold isn’t a nasty concept, having all the things in gold is a nasty asset allocation. Talking trash about bitcoin is a nasty concept.” And by that, he signifies that if Shiff centered on selling gold and never on criticizing bitcoin, he wouldn’t be making a idiot of himself.

And that’s about it. How a lot did we be taught from Ricardo Salinas?
