After exiting the hedge fund world, Robert Breedlove’s fascination with the concept of money grew. In a pursuit to better understand its foundation, Breedlove dove headlong down the Bitcoin rabbit hole and came out the other side in full support of an evolved financial system relying on hard money principles and freedom, aka Bitcoin. Now Robert hosts the “What is Money Show,” in addition to prolifically writing about Bitcoin, blockchain, and crypto at some of the deepest philosophical levels.
In this episode, Melker and Breedlove discuss a range of topics including:
Answering the question: "What is money?"
Thinking in dollars
The study of central banking
Why pay taxes if the government can print
A digital age renaissance
The central bank scam
Bitcoin as a barometer
Freedom of economic speech
The 5 properties of money
Enrichment vs dilution
Bitcoin as a call option on the future gold standard
Physical vs digital gold
