1/ My essay “The End of Super Imperialism” is now live. The global economy was once based on asset money. It's now based on debt money and inflation. What happened? Is the dollar system—where the US forces other nations to finance its wars—fair? ☕ 🧵 bitcoinmagazine.com/culture/…

WTA doesn't wait for China to kick it out. We expected this, but that doesn't make it any less remarkable. An int'l sports body voluntarily leaving the world's biggest consumer market (and the site of its own year-end tournament) @JoshRobinson23 wsj.com/articles/wta-china-p…

Over the last twenty years we watched nearly every company turn their focus to the internet. Over the next twenty years we will watch nearly every company turn their focus to bitcoin.

Really bizarre to see Ethiopia's air force bombing the country's own infrastructure:
Visual confirmation that the Tekeze Dam’s electricity substation was destroyed/heavily damaged by the Ethiopian Air Force. Substation is located at 13°21'15"N 38°44'44"E

Had never recorded with @Breedlove22 before! I enjoyed going on his show to explore the global transition from asset to debt money, the history of super imperialism and the petrodollar, and how Bitcoin can succeed where gold failed. Show notes here: youtube.lurkmore.com/watch?v=AbETjKMT…

Coming soon:
Ray Dalio justifies his investments in China by saying that the US does bad stuff too and that CCP policies of disappearing people and running vast prison camps are basically “family” behavior where a “strict parent” is telling kids to behave. NGMI

Transforming abundant sunlight into unstoppable, appreciating, open-source, teleporting money ☀️ No big deal. Probably not relevant for dozens of emerging market countries, or even households that have decent annual sun exposure.

What is the WTA potentially leaving: A 10-year deal, from 2017, with streaming platform iQiyi as its digital rights China partner, worth ~ $120 million. A 2018 deal with the city of Shenzhen to host the finals, which put forward a "breathtaking" bid. reuters.com/lifestyle/scienc…

OPEC and OPEC+ are meeting (virtually) today and tomorrow -- if you care to know, this is the 11th meeting of the year, which sets a new annual record (surpassing the 7 gatherings of 2003, and beating the 6 meetings of years including 1974 and 1986). #OOTT

#Turkey President Erdogan removes Treasury & Finance Minister Elvan. Lira a tad lower after volatile day. CenBank had intervened this morning for 1st time since 2014 to halt the rout.
