In today's conversation with the International Blockchain Monetary Reserve's Managing Director Sinjin David Jung and with IBMR's Head of Research, Cyrus Afkhami, we discuss inequality in both emerging and developed countries and what we might expect from the next normal that arises out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ever the academic, Cyrus takes a historical view on the current situation and looks at how past events throughout Anglo American history have ended up changing society, unequivocally. We discuss what to expect in both the United States and in emerging markets once the quarantine is lifted and life begins to return to normal and how the situation in emerging markets may be totally different than from what happens in developed countries. And finally, thankfully, we end on a bit of an optimistic note where Sinjin discusses possible alternatives to the status quo and how emerging markets and specifically the urban working poor can be empowered through decentralization.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
