In this talk, Andreas follows-up on “Currency Wars” a talk he gave in 2016. A lot has changed but mostly in a worse direction than before. Currencies are at war with each other, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are getting banned, maligned and dismissed even as they enjoy new highs in value. New distractions like Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and corporate currencies (Libra/Diem) are trying to distract further from the simple truth: National currencies are sinking under a deluge of debt and even those at the top are beginning to get worried. Learn how to prepare your evacuation plan and help others too.
