Episode 59 • 🖨 Economy is AOK, Quantitative Easing, & China’s African Cities
We kick the decade off with an irreverent look at the last month of news. Kicking off with YouTube’s Christmas crypto purge, shifting into New Year Drone displays, and taking a hard brake alongside Craig Wright’s 2019 Bitcoin predictions.
The economy is fine, quantitative easing is just a bit of light entertainment, and China is building self-sustaining cities in the middle of Africa… All is well.
Nevertheless, drone deliveries are becoming a thing, an autonomous fighter jet is undergoing trials, and Segway are creating the dystopian utopia we’ve all been dreaming of.
