Fed Will Announce Plans to Digitize the Dollar, Says Anthony Pompliano (RTD Live Talk)
Rumors are swirling that the Federal Reserve plans to announce an initiative to digitize the US dollar, according to Anthony Pompliano, co-founder of the blockchain venture capital fund Morgan Creek Digital. Pomp first tweeted about the rumors earlier today, reporting that an announcement could come as soon as this week in an effort that could mimic China’s digitization of the yuan. If the US moves ahead with a digital currency, Pompliano believes it would contribute to the crypto movement in the US in a big way. Watch the full livestream here: https://youtu.be/wk-UbEtsZfQ

Why are so many people over 55 going bankrupt? - RTD Live Talk
The number of people 55 and older filing bankruptcies has skyrocketed since 1991, and that’s even more true for those 65 and older.

Negative Interest Rates Don't Work w/ Vincent Deluard
Those who had hoped that things could not get worse with the monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB) have been proven wrong. At its last meeting on 25 July 2019, the Governing Council of the ECB kept interest rates unchanged: the main refinancing rate was kept at 0.00% and the deposit rate at -0.40%. At the same time, however, ECB President Mario Draghi has prepared the ground to lower interest rates even further in the coming months. What is the reasoning behind that?  During this interview Vincent Deluard shares his thoughts on why.
