Coin Stories with Natalie Brunell

May 15, 2024

In this episode with macro analyst Ed Dowd, we discuss: 

  • The current state of the economy and whether a crash is looming
  • What would a 30-50% stock crash look like and could money printing 'save it'
  • Bank consolidations: Ed predicts failures of many regional banks and a few Too Big to Fail Banks emerging at the top
  • How will a CBDC work and why would they introduce one?
  • Is Bitcoin the solution to the broken financial system?
  • Are leaders malicious or incompetent?
  • Why the divide of red vs blue?
  • Why Ed sees a lot of hope
