Avoiding a Central Bank Digital Currency with Nicholas Anthony
Show Notes

This week we cover the legislative record of House of Representatives in 2023, the proliferation of conferences about ESG investing, the sketchy status of the carbon offset market, and why it’s time for humans to go back to the moon. Our interview this week is with Nicholas Anthony, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute. We talk about the prospects and perils of a central bank digital currency in the U.S., including privacy concerns, monetary stability, and the prospect for political abuse via social credit policies. Free the Economy is produced and hosted by Richard Morrison and edited and co-produced by Ryan Kracinski.
