2024-06-02 Retirement Lifestyle Advocates Radio w/ Jeffrey Tucker

This week on RLA Radio, your host, Dennis Tubbergen, talks with Jeffrey Tucker, founder of The Brownstone Institute, about the history of government control over money and the potential for digital currencies. Tucker explained that historically, markets have been capable of producing their own money, but governments have consistently sought to maintain a monopoly over currency for control over taxation and relationships with the banking sector. He suggested that the current push for central bank digital currencies is part of this historical trend, but noted that public opposition is stronger than expected. Tucker also predicted that the Federal Reserve will attempt to cut rates before the end of the summer to boost the economy ahead of the election.

Jeffrey A. Tucker is the Founder and President of the Brownstone Institute and the author of many thousands of articles in the scholarly and popular press and ten books in 5 languages, most recently publisher of Blindsight in 2020. He is also the editor of The Best of Mises. He speaks widely on topics of economics, technology, social philosophy, and culture.
