    This guy blocked me on Twitter because I stated the fact that he was NOT an early investor in crypto (like Fred Wilson) but a late comer to a party that was about to crash. Too emotionally thin-skinned for proper investing.

    I'm surprised that he till believes in the fractional reserve banking myth.

    In a sense Yusko maintains a strange moral view re: lying to keep the "Truman Show" (meeting w/greek AlfaBankCEO). Isn´t that the reason why things got this bad?

    It is so difficult to keep an open mind. The internet is full of info, views & "beliefs". I have a contrarian bent & a feeling the world is not at all right, so Grant & Raoul's views feed a need.

    Next step for RV: Yusko and Hart debating China currency crash. With much mutual respect. What a break for the Presidential debates.

    Social Security is requiring that they use automatic deposit of all checks. I can see a run on the banks the day these checks are deposited if people get charged for the bank keeping their funds.

    A part of the talk reminds me of: Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. -- Steve Jobs

    Re: the dollar/yuan, Raoul sees the carry trade unwind as bullish for the dollar. But wouldn’t that unwind send a tidal wave of dollars washing back onto US shores? Huge inflation? Convince me!

    I have been in the market in '93. My take away is "if your not right get out". As I get older, I begin to understand the simple stuff.

    Another instant classic RVTV interview. He brings up an interesting idea, we need a 2-3 hour roundtable discussion between some of the names he dropped.

    I the slip we make bets, I mean investing. What? He thinks he is investing. Please - investing is building a factory. Calculated guess on whether China devalues - is a bet. Let's be real -- I bet!

    I REALLY like the idea of binging on RV and then unplug, sit in the woods, and let your mind and all of your life's stored lessons bring you to YOUR plan of action!

    Yusko seems like a cool dude that just gets it. Stay open minded, have perspective and always maintain a willingness to change. Stubbornness and false pride aren't admirable traits.

    Discussion regarding loss of faith in central banks and markets is so important...particularly with retiring baby boomers so twitchy about their retirement funds. Forget bank runs...think market runs

    We keep seeing the FED do the "wrong" thing at the "wrong" time for the "wrong" reason. What if the FED is and has done exactly the "right" thing at the "right" time to meet their "TRUE" goals?

    Loved both your views on "views" and beliefs. Got me thinking about my own and those around me. Gotta get away from the noise more often. Thanks!
