There are two parts to this story that we explore during this conversation. The first deals with Hong Kong — specifically, its political and economic future as an independent territory of mainland China.
The second deals with China itself — specifically, its political and financial stability as the most leveraged economy at scale, in the world. At what point do the political tremors in Hong Kong become civic earthquakes capable of shattering the fragile peace between these two irreconcilable systems? Will open society prevail in Hong Kong, or will China do whatever it takes in order to reassert control over the former British colony?
In the second part of this conversation, David Webb shares his insights from his decades of experience studying the Chinese economy and investing in Chinese companies listed in Hong Kong. Instead, we have made the transcript to this conversation available to Overtime subscribers, which will be published in the next day or two.

It is a movement that is likely to grow, especially if governments validate the concerns of Bitcoiners with further debt monetization or preferential bailouts. This conversation with Nic Carter is an attempt to understand Bitcoin as more than just the sum of its parts. One of the lessons that Demetri has taken away from his continued research into Bitcoin through the works of people like Nick Szabo, Paul Sztorc, and others, is that trying to measure the cryptocurrency against existing systems or conventions is almost always counterproductive.
This is likely because Bitcoin is more than just money or a payments network. Bitcoin is a movement. Within it exists a competent community of intellectuals who are actively engaged in what often feels like a grand project to remake society. This comes across in the seriousness with which Bitcoiners apply themselves.
In this sense, Bitcoin is not what most of us think it is, and even what we think it is, is constantly changing.

Demetri Kofinas speaks with investor Raoul Pal about the future of global money in a multi-polar world. This leads to a discussion about Bitcoin, Libra, and alternative forms of money that could outcompete and eventually supplant the currencies issued by sovereign governments. Additional topics include debt, demographics, gold, and more. The inspiration for this conversation derives from a theme captured in William Strauss and Neil Howe's Generational Theory, also known as the Fourth Turning, where the authors describe a four-stage cycle of social moods associated with recurring generational archetypes, which they call "turnings.
All of this leads to a discussion about digital currency in a multi-polar world where the power of governments to maintain the global order is diminished and where corporations and the private sector may gain an opening to provide alternative forms of money in support of global trade and commerce. Where does bitcoin fit in this world? What about alternative protocols and currencies? Will governments even allow them? Can they stop them or will they welcome them and does this point the way towards a path that will lead inexorably towards truly global money?
