Bitcoin trail blazed the interest and development of digital money.

As a result, the drive for a cashless society with fiat currency being replaced with CBDCs is being pursued by an increasing number of countries.

Currently, that count is a worrying 130. The ultimate goal is a one world currency.

We discuss all of this with Aaron Day, author of “The Final Countdown, the People’s Last Stand Against Tyranny by Central Bank Digital Currencies”.

We comment on Grant Robertson and his new home at the University of Otago, and how higher education wrecks freedom.

And we visit The Mailroom with Mrs Producer.
