    All money is backed by absolutely nothing. Money is debt. No money comes into existence without an equal amount of debt. That's what went wrong in 2008. Banks and Wall Street with the collusion of Mortgage Brokers and Appraisers bouncing off the success of shows about flipping houses were able to con a lot of people into signing on the dotted line for inflated mortgages. It worked like this. The BUZZ caused by the these shows on Networks owned by the same people who own the banks coerced a lot of idiots into getting mortgages for homes that the appraisers over valued. And this is a fact because I know personally you can shop for the appraisal you want and back then the Mortgage Broker was helping people get THE RIGHT GUY for the job. So a $125,000 home became a $175K home, and so on and so on. Just because someone said so and someone put their name on a piece of paper this created MONEY in a bank. They loan you money they don't even have because it's on paper. Maybe an actually small amount of "real money" whatever the fuck that is exchanges hands like bribes to the appraiser, fees, what not actually happens but the BIG MONEY stays in the banks. To help ensure it stays in the banks laws were passed that if you are stopped and are carrying a large amount of cash it can be seized by the police until you can prove it was legally made. The pretense being for catching drug dealers but it is really about keeping cash in the banks because just like they used to have a certain amount of gold in the bank a small percentage to cover a small number of depositers possibly wanting their money they have to have a certain amount of REAL MONEY to cover the paper and digital money.
    So just like you can take a painting by Van Gogh and buy it for 50 million now and wait a few years for some buzz or fad and turn that into 70 million just because someone says that is what it is worth a home as well as other things can be changed. The problem is that the Sub Prime Crime was HUGE. A lot of puffed up fake appraisals creating a bunch of money that had no real money to back it and on top of that SHIT CAKE was a lot of credit and so called credit default swaps which are both imaginary money clogging up the pipes. So when as much REAL WORLD VALUE could be milked out in a few years with all this imaginary money which just moved from one bank to another and never saw the light of day the whole thing was collapsed on purpose to get rid of a MASSIVE and I mean MASSIVE amount of LEGAL FRAUD.
    To further muddy the water a mortgage actually generates double or triple, depending upon interest rates, the original cost of the home by the time you pay it off. Over 30 years and an original $200K mortgage you could pay $400K or $600K by the time you are done carrying that large loan year after year after year paying yearly interest on all that principle. But it takes 15 or 30 years for the banks to actually see that but they were selling it as investments as if it had already happened. So when the clog that stopped this giant FRAUD TRAIN in its tracks popped up they imploded the market, wiped out the imaginary money, kept all the real money, tossed in a bunch of Baby Boomer Retirement Money they said they had but never did but used it to buy into all this fraud and wiped 60 TRILLION DOLLARS off the books worldwide. BOOM!
    And most of it never actually existed. The banks got a few trillion to stay in business and you got the bill. That's why you now have banks laundering DRUG CARTEL MONEY and TERRORIST MONEY without going to jail when they are caught. That's why you have banks committing bank fraud by the MILLIONS OF FAKE ACCOUNTS AND TRANSACTIONS without anyone going to jail. Why? Because everyone in CONGRESS knows we are already bankrupt. Baby Boomers keep retiring if they can and by the time they are done the price tag for their Social Security and Medicaid will be over 220 TRILLION dollars. The banks and the government are in on the GREATEST CONFIDENCE GAME EVERY PLAYED. And that's just one tiny aspect compared to the hundreds of different cons being run on a daily basis and the millions and billions of individual cons and frauds spread through out the entire system. Cryptos is just the latest con.
    Here is how it works. They get you to take that money they say they have for you in their bank and buy magic money at $8,000 a coin. They run it up by pretending to be be other people buying it then when they see an opportunity they hack it or use their NEWS OUTLETS to talk dirt about it or scare people and at some point someone is left holding ZERO and all that real money you saved up your entire life for just goes POOF! Like someone set fire to your Van Gogh. Poof! 70 million gone. And here's the unifying theme to the whole thing and this is why they want to make you look like a criminal if you hoard cash and eventually they want to replace all cash with a debit card. Already they make it tough for you to keep actual cash. Banks will report you if you take out a certain amount of cash money. Post Offices will make you sign a paper if you buy more than $3,000 in money orders etc. Even with a few TRILLION in PAPER (not really paper) MONEY out there in circulation there is not enough, just like once there was not enough gold, to cover what they pretend to have ON THE BOOKS. And if you say made $100K on selling a house where will you keep that money? In the bank. That's the thing. At the end of the day no huge amount of money actually existed. No real money actually went from Bank A to Bank B. And any profit you imagine you made went right back into the bank. You may have a few hundred or even a thousand stashed in a box in your home. The rest stays in the bank.
    And when someone defaults on that loan as millions did. They still have the house. Didn't lose a dime because they never had one to begin with and get to use you as the scapegoat on their books and just SWISH write it off. And they still have the house.
    Its all fake. Cryptos are just another con. Another way to take something that doesn't exist, suck out real world value, then trash it and leave you holding the bag when its all over.
    In conclusion. My dad. A WW2 vet told me that his guys were using Japanese paper money to wipe their butts and start fires before they were shipped back to the states. Same thing in Germany. Because it was freaking worthless. And the only reason the U.S. Dollar has any value is because you and a lot of people think it does. However right now there are countries like CHINA, RUSSIA, and others working to push the U.S. Dollar out of their trades. And once the U.S. Dollar falls below a certain level and our debt becomes high enough BOOM! You $100 bill becomes about $10 in the matter of a week no matter how many zeroes it has on it.
    And its coming. And RUSSIA AND CHINA are working to make it happen. So with that in mind just remember that the next time your MAGA friend starts yapping about how misunderstood Russia is. We are a decade away from being like the USSR. Enjoy your over inflated lifestyle while you can because when the hammer comes down you will find out that BANKS are private businesses with a lot of government protection. They are not the government. They will close their doors. Shut off the ATMS. And just like Bernie Madoffs victims. GOOD LUCK GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK.
    That's the story of money.

    Hi Fellas! Cryptocurrency Trading is the Forex (Foreign Exchange) of cryptocurrencies. This means, you are able to trade bitcoin and altcoins normally for USD, GBP and EUR. Cryptocurrency Trading is an alternative way to get involved in the Crypto-World. It doesn’t require mining hardware nor investing in bitcoin hyips or bitcoin cloud mining which is said to have a high level of risk involved. Crypto trading is now seen as a good opportunity to make good money. Many coins quadruple their value in less than a week when a good strategy is implemented. I have been trading it for close to 2 years now and I've made about 90000usd due to the fact that I invested wisely and now my wife have also joined the Crypto-World with me. yall reach me bitcoindigger86@gmail .com

    This is so disappointing that it really makes me doubt the integrity of the whole show. Yes cryptocurrencies aren’t as regulated. That’s kind of the point. It’s essentially at it’s heart an anarchist platform that is trying to disrupt the current financial status quo. Also, EOS is not a cryptocurrency or a digital token it’s a block chain technology that has applications beyond cryptocurrency. I agree caution is necessary and being informed is important, but this is not information. It’s cryptocurrency word salad.

    • Firebird

      the show consistently calls out bullshit. If this episode casts doubt for you on the integrity of the show, while you think other episodes don't. Maybe it's because you're caught up in the bullshit they're talking about.
      Cryptocurrencies are energy wasting bullshit. It's basically fancy gambling at best and that's what this show pointed out. So get caught up in that at your own risk but when you get fucked over by it, remember you decided to gamble.
