Dirty Deeds Financed With Bitcoin

December 20, 2017


This morning, Kevin O’Neill and the Chief discussed the hypothetical outcomes that can happen if the government gives corporations large tax breaks. It is suggested that there would be very positive outcomes such as increased jobs. But, the question is, at what cost? The Chief also points out some of the similarities of Trump’s tactics with infamous dictators. One tactic is always comparing himself back to Hilary Clinton and suggesting that, no matter what, she still would have been worse. Next up was Fari Hamzei, of Hamzei Analytics, who talked weekly markets. They touched on some interesting facts about how even the smallest modification of a plane or train can have a major impact on the design entirely. The Chief pointed out the astronomical healthcare prices for an average middle class family paying out of pocket. Lastly, Fari and the Chief ended with some very interesting viewpoints and questions regarding bitcoin and bitcoin mining.
