Description of 2 part discussion with Ed Moy:
Is a Cashless Society on the Horizon? This is the plan for many government planners around the world. Whether you hate it or love it, some sort of digital currency will be part a big part of our future. This episode of Business Game Changers we bring back Ed Moy, director of the U.S. Mint under Bush and Obama to share his perspective on the future of money. We discuss many issues regarding the move to a cashless society such as who benefits and who doesn’t. How this affects freedom and how governments around the world are reacting to government controlled digital currencies versus independent crypto-currencies. He explains what crypto-currencies are, in particular, what bitcoin is, and how it works.
This is a must listen, 2 episode conversation about the future of money and how it will effect society at large and at an individual level.
