Betting on Hong Kong, South Park, and Free Speech

By Scheplick

In this episode we examine the Hong Kong Protests, what they mean, how they started, reasons why James Harden and South Park got involved, and lastly, why the producer of the show is actually putting his own money on the line to bet against China’s censorship. This is a ride through sports, pop culture, and financial markets in all under 30 minutes. We learned why the Hong Kong protests started, what they mean, how they permeated basketball and South Park, and then ultimately, financial markets.  South Park, in particular, took a giant swing at the Chinese Communist Party and, of course, the entire show was banned in mainland China. As of this writing, the NBA is trying to fix its image with the Chinese Communist Party all because of a simple tweet from one of their General Managers. In the world of finance, it's possible billions of dollars, maybe trillions, are overexposed to the communist party and indirectly funding their tyranny against free speech and other basic rights. This is big. Don't ignore it. (All audio, music, clips, and voiceovers are used with Fair Use.
