Professor Hanke expounds upon his professional and academic career. We cover a few hyperinflationary episodes, including reform works he has completed or aided in, such as in Lithuania, Argentina, and Brazil. We talk about gold and the dollar, currency backing and redemption, as well as potential global currency reforms. Professor Hanke gives his (negative) opinion on Bitcoin, which he has long held. He informs on his ideas for a stablecoin project in conjunction with his board advisory position at Airtm. We close with some final thoughts on the definitions of inflation, hyperinflation, and the money supply. Listen on to learn more.
