In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the fact that a vassal state of the Troika has been listed as number 9 in terms of economic freedom by the Heritage Foundation and Wall Street Journal. With that, they ask what is economic freedom in a neo-liberal, hyper-contractualized and financialized world run by big business, big banks and big bureaucrats. In the second half, Max interviews Payu Harris and his attempt to bring Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Payu suggests cryptos and the blockchain can offer unbreakable, sacrosanct contracts.
