Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC returns to Goldseek.com Radio with a cutting-edge dialogue on the Bitcoin and crypto market noting that fiat money is quickly becoming a true "barbarous relic" thanks to the unsound policies of global central bankers. The host outlines a bullet list of the remarkable qualities of cryptocurrencies "future-money" and the duo engage in a thought provoking and kind-spirited debate:

  • The Bitcoin Bubble - the exponential rise of Bitcoin / Cryptos in 2017, where Bitcoin ascended from $1,000 to $20,000 in only 12 months, a 20x advance was a bubble: the host / guest concur on the similarities with the epic Nikkei market zenith.

  • Cryptos have no value? Mr. Pento agrees advocates digital wealth as a chief means of transferring wealth abroad. The host directs the dialogue to the Bitcoin revolution underway in Venezuela where people are fleeing the nation in droves amid 10 million percent inflation, as forecasted by the IMF in a Reuter's article on GATA.org. Moving wealth across borders is challenging given that $300,000 could soon be required to purchase a $3 loaf of bread, just 2 years earlier and a gold coin $120,000,000 or $120 million! Parallels are drawn between the numerous inflationary fiasco's from the genesis of civilization until today, including Ancient Greece, Rome, China, 100 years of inflation during the 1700's in France, perhaps best illustrated by the easy to read, Fiat Money Inflation in France (White, 1876), free PDF / HTML copies here. In the last century, hyperinflation ravaged the economies throughout Europe as well as Zimbabwe.
