The Fed Will Fix Inflation? Yeah, Sure …

The Fed Will Fix Inflation? Yeah, Sure …

The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank is hiking interest rates to reduce the currently high inflation rate. They also – sort of, maybe – stopped the money printing that causes inflation. Will it work?

Quiet-Quitting, If Real, Is Self-Destructive

Digital Money Isn’t Money. Perhaps a Tool of Control?

Decentralized cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are being seriously challenged today by rapidly developing, government-controlled, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) technologies. 112 countries, representing over 95 percent of global GDP, are exploring a CBDC.
