#203: Everything You Need To Know About The History Of Money, Inflation And Recessions


What is money? With everything going on right now – from an impending recession and skyrocketing inflation, I was keen to have Davinci Jeremie on the show again. This time, we are doing a deep dive into the history of money. Leaning on his experience as a software developer and an early adopter of cryptocurrency, Davinci takes listeners back to the beginning of money; we talk about gold and silver, why paper money was introduced, and the start of the banking system. We also discuss the advent of digital currencies, why governments are printing money and the severity of the upcoming recession. If you want to understand money and how the system works, this is an episode you should not miss.
