Rune Østgård - Fraudcoin - 1000 Years with Inflation as a Policy | Part 2

In the second episode of this two-part series, we welcome back Rune Østgård, a lawyer with a deep passion for monetary history and the author of "Fraudcoin: A Thousand Years with Inflation as a Policy" for a deeper dive into the nefarious world of monetary policy and inflation. Rune's explains the historical and ongoing manipulation of money supply by governments and central banks and sheds light on the often-overlooked roots of economic inequality. We explore the stark reality of how inflation has been weaponized throughout history, from Lenin and Stalin's Soviet Union to the deceptive stability of the gold standard. We unravel the intricate web of policies that not only create economic problems but also mask their true origins, leaving citizens to bear the brunt of these manipulations.
