    “That is what really drew me to Bitcoin, because it had this property that means that, no matter how many people want to use Bitcoin we’re not going to make more than 21 million. Deal with it.”
    — Saifedean Ammous

    Interview Location: Skype
    Interview Date: Monday 15th, July
    Company: saifedean.com
    Role: Founder

    When landing in the world of Bitcoin there are many concepts down the rabbit hole to get lost in, from technology to economics there is a wealth of information available. Within the world of economics, many will discover the theory of Austrian economics for the first time.

    Those who believe in Austrian Economics believe in free markets, the gold standard and minimal government intervention. So where does Bitcoin fit into this? Could it be the perfect tool to facilitate a free market Could it even become an improved and new gold standard?

    To find out more, I sat down with Saifedean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard and an Associate Professor in Economics at the Lebanese American University. Having recently launched his online academy it was a great time for Saifedean to teach me more about Austrian Economics and catch up on our mutual love for Liverpool FC. We discuss:
    - Is Austrian Economics the only economic model that Bitcoin fits into?
    - Is taxation theft?
    - What makes a market a free market?
    - What is money and is Bitcoin money?
    - Will fractional reserve banking occur with Bitcoin?
    - Will central banks adopt Bitcoin?
    - Will improved monetary policy kill Bitcoin?
    - Will Liverpool win the Premier League in ‘20?

    1:1:40

    Hosted by Bitstop and Biscayne Bitcoin on June 15th 2018 at the 1 Hotel South Beach, Dr Ammous and South Florida’s Bitcoin community discussed The Bitcoin Standard. Dr. Ammous is the author of The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking, the first serious academic treatise on the economics of Bitcoin. In his book, he takes the readers on a historical journey of the monetary systems, from trading and the gold standard to the modern government currency. As a knowledgeable activist of Bitcoin culture, Dr. Ammous provides a clear understanding of the consequences our society currently undergoes through government financing versus the innovative Bitcoin system.

    Dr. Saifedean Ammous is an assistant professor of economics at Adnan Kassar School of Business. He conducts research and consultations for various organizations and lectures on economics to professionals and civil servants.

    With his book The Bitcoin Standard - The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking he proposed an interesting scenario for Bitocoin.

    Ammous takes the reader on an engaging journey through the history of technologies performing the functions of money, from primitive systems of trading limestones and seashells, to metals, coins, the gold standard, and modern government debt. Exploring what gave these technologies their monetary role, and how most lost it, provides the reader with a good idea of what makes for sound money, and sets the stage for an economic discussion of its consequences for individual and societal future-orientation, capital accumulation, trade, peace, culture, and art. Compellingly, Ammous shows that it is no coincidence that the loftiest achievements of humanity have come in societies enjoying the benefits of sound monetary regimes, nor is it coincidental that monetary collapse has usually accompanied civilizational collapse.

    “Negative interest rates are purely a construct of the artificiality of the monetary system. There is going to a major bond crash - the challenge is that this could be years if not decades away, or it could be tomorrow.”— Caitlin Long“What is going to be interesting in the next crisis is whether Bitcoin behaves as a speculative asset. Will people exit it towards more safer, more liquid assets like the Dollar or gold, or whether it is going to behave more like safe haven asset itself, and people will be exiting other things, particularly the altcoins for the relative safety and liquidity of Bitcoin.”— Saifedean AmmousInterview location: Skype
    Interview date: Friday 21st September 2018

    Following the 2008 market crash, analysts are highlighting new risks for the global economy with rising government debt presenting a risk of a bond crash. The last 12 months have also seen a fall in the value of the local currency in countries such as Iran, Turkey and Venezuela. Data from Local Bitcoin’s highlights that in failing economies, Bitcoin is often seen as a safe haven.

    Bitcoin is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy with regulators and Wall Street coming to the table.

    In this episode, I talk with the author of The Bitcoin Standard, Saifedean Ammous and Wall Street veteran, Caitlin Long. We discuss:
    • The state of the global economy
    • Keynesian economics
    • Negative interest rates
    • Deregulation of the banking industry KYC/AML
    • The Bank Secrecy Act
    • Privacy and is it dangerous for Bitcoin
    • Rehypothecation
    • Fractional reserve Bitcoin
    • Implications of Wall Street adoption of Bitcoin
    • How the Bitcoin revolution will happen


    • Cross-border payments with Bitcoin


    • Liverpool winning the Premier League

  • Saifedean Ammous on Bitcoin Hype

    48:20

    It turns out the best book on Bitcoin was written by someone who thinks the cryptocurrency is not a particularly good form of payment, not particularly anonymous, and not a good investment for most people. Saifedean Ammous, professor of economics at Lebanese American University, wrote 'The Bitcoin Standard' (Mises.org/BitStandard) to cut through the hype and examine crypto technology through a rigorous Austrian lens. The result is a phenomenal book: pro-gold, pro-Mises, and optimistic about the crypto revolution's goal of creating truly private money.

    This is the guy you should listen to when it comes to Bitcoin. He sits down with Jeff Deist for a thorough and entertaining interview.

  • Saifedean Ammous on Why Bitcoin Will Replace Central Banks

    17:09

    During the pandemic, we saw the biggest money printing exercise in history by global central banks.

    Saifedean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking, speaks to CoinDesk's Nolan Bauerle and Bailey Reutzel about the shortcomings of this debt-based system. It might appear that central banks are the heroes saving the day, but why does our current monetary system require them to step in all the time? He explains how Bitcoin is offering an alternative way and has stayed its course since its creation in 2009.

  • Keiser Report featuring Dr. Saifedean Ammous

    14:15

    When a pseudonymous programmer introduced “a new electronic cash system that’s fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party” to a small online mailing list in 2008, very few paid attention. Ten years later, and against all odds, this upstart autonomous decentralized software offers an unstoppable and globally-accessible hard money alternative to modern central banks. The Bitcoin Standard analyzes the historical context to the rise of Bitcoin, the economic properties that have allowed it to grow quickly, and its likely economic, political, and social implications.

    While Bitcoin is a new invention of the digital age, the problem it purports to solve is as old as human society itself: transferring value across time and space. Ammous takes the reader on an engaging journey through the history of technologies performing the functions of money, from primitive systems of trading limestones and seashells, to metals, coins, the gold standard, and modern government debt. Exploring what gave these technologies their monetary role, and how most lost it, provides the reader with a good idea of what makes for sound money, and sets the stage for an economic discussion of its consequences for individual and societal future-orientation, capital accumulation, trade, peace, culture, and art. Compellingly, Ammous shows that it is no coincidence that the loftiest achievements of humanity have come in societies enjoying the benefits of sound monetary regimes, nor is it coincidental that monetary collapse has usually accompanied civilizational collapse.

  • The Bitcoin Standard Book Summary - Saifedean Ammous - MattyGTV

    2:41

    The Bitcoin Standard Book Summary - Saifedean Ammous

    1. Currency is crucial because without it we would be forced to barter. It doesn’t scale.
    2. Moving from the gold standard to fiat/paper currency created a century of boom and bust cycles, along with increasing inequality and debt.
    3. Rai stones were used as money on Yap island. This was great as it was scarce and easily divisible, like gold. Then a foreigner imported loads of Rai stones to buy coconuts on the island. This made the currency worthless due to the massive supply, and Rai stones went back to being worthless stones. This is what happens to every fiat currency as the central bank prints to oblivion.
    4. Currency debasement was developed to fund wars. Rulers started “coin clipping”. This increased inflation and led to the fall of the Roman empire.
    5. War always leads to massive inflation. That’s why they abandoned the gold standard after ww1, people wouldn’t have liked the new fiat:gold valuation and if they overvalued the paper currency, people would’ve just traded it for gold and sold abroad.
    6. Sound money such as gold is the basis for a functioning economy. That’s why we have so much poverty, investments aren’t keeping up with the real rate of inflation. The official government statistics are a lie. Sound money encourages savings and investment, crucial for sustainable, long term economic growth. The current high inflationary environment promotes investment but no savings.
    7. Bitcoin is the only good that’s defined by absolute scarcity. The network is also safe and can’t be attacked. Bitcoin has been volatile however the fluctuations should decrease as the market grows.
    8. We could peg fiat currency to Bitcoin, however this would require centralised institutions to monitor it.

    The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking
    When a pseudonymous programmer introduced “a new electronic cash system that’s fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party” to a small online mailing list in 2008, very few paid attention. Ten years later, and against all odds, this upstart autonomous decentralized software offers an unstoppable and globally-accessible hard money alternative to modern central banks. The Bitcoin Standard analyzes the historical context to the rise of Bitcoin, the economic properties that have allowed it to grow quickly, and its likely economic, political, and social implications.

    While Bitcoin is a new invention of the digital age, the problem it purports to solve is as old as human society itself: transferring value across time and space. Ammous takes the reader on an engaging journey through the history of technologies performing the functions of money, from primitive systems of trading limestones and seashells, to metals, coins, the gold standard, and modern government debt. Exploring what gave these technologies their monetary role, and how most lost it, provides the reader with a good idea of what makes for sound money, and sets the stage for an economic discussion of its consequences for individual and societal future-orientation, capital accumulation, trade, peace, culture, and art. Compellingly, Ammous shows that it is no coincidence that the loftiest achievements of humanity have come in societies enjoying the benefits of sound monetary regimes, nor is it coincidental that monetary collapse has usually accompanied civilizational collapse.

    With this background in place, the book moves on to explain the operation of Bitcoin in a functional and intuitive way. Bitcoin is a decentralized, distributed piece of software that converts electricity and processing power into indisputably accurate records, thus allowing its users to utilize the Internet to perform the traditional functions of money without having to rely on, or trust, any authorities or infrastructure in the physical world. Bitcoin is thus best understood as the first successfully implemented form of digital cash and digital hard money. With an automated and perfectly predictable monetary policy, and the ability to perform final settlement of large sums across the world in a matter of minutes, Bitcoin’s real competitive edge might just be as a store of value and network for final settlement of large payments—a digital form of gold with a built-in settlement infrastructure.

    Ammous’ firm grasp of the technological possibilities as well as the historical realities of monetary evolution provides for a fascinating exploration of the ramifications of voluntary free market money. As it challenges the most sacred of government monopolies, Bitcoin shifts the pendulum of sovereignty away from governments in favor of individuals, offering us the tantalizing possibility of a world where money is fully extricated from politics and unrestrained by borders.

    The final chapter of the book explores some of the most common questions surrounding Bitcoin: Is Bitcoin mining a waste of energy? Is Bitcoin for criminals? Who controls Bitcoin, and can they change it if they please? How can Bitcoin be killed? And what to make of all the thousands of Bitcoin knock-offs, and the many supposed applications of Bitcoin’s ‘blockchain technology’? The Bitcoin Standard is the essential resource for a clear understanding of the rise of the Internet’s decentralized, apolitical, free-market alternative to national central banks.

  • The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking, with Saifedean Ammous

    32:49

    When a pseudonymous programmer introduced a new electronic cash system that's fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party to a small online mailing list in 2008, very few paid attention. Ten years later, and against all odds, this upstart autonomous decentralized software offers an unstoppable and globally-accessible hard money alternative to modern central banks. In this episode I'm joined by economist Dr Saifedean Ammous. In his book The Bitcoin Standard, he analyzes the historical context to the rise of Bitcoin, the economic properties that have allowed it to grow quickly, and its likely economic, political, and social implications. While Bitcoin is a new invention of the digital age, the problem it purports to solve is as old as human society itself; transferring value across time and space. Is Bitcoin mining a waste of energy? Is Bitcoin for criminals? Who controls Bitcoin, and can they change it if they please? There are so many questions surrounding Bitcoin, crypto-assets and the blockchain right now. In this episode, we seek the answers.

    Here’s my conversation with Saifedean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard, in episode 357 of Informed Choice Radio.

  • Saifedean Ammous: Bitcoin Is a Monetary Batman

    5:01

    Saifedean Ammous, professor of economics at Lebanese American University, wrote The Bitcoin Standard to cut through the hype and examine crypto technology through a rigorous Austrian lens. The result is a phenomenal book: pro-gold, pro-Mises, and optimistic about the crypto revolution's goal of creating truly private money. This is definitely the guy you should listen to when it comes to Bitcoin.

  • Can Bitcoin Replace Government-Issued Money? A Debate

    1:22:39

    Bitcoin is poorly suited to the purpose of becoming any nation's main medium of exchange.

    That was the topic of a public debate hosted by the Soho Forum in New York City on August 12, 2019. It featured George Selgin, director of the Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives at the Cato Institute, and economist Saifedean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking (2018). Soho Forum Director Gene Epstein moderated.

    It was an Oxford-style debate, in which the audience votes on the resolution at the beginning and end of the event, and the side that gains the most ground is victorious. Ammous prevailed in the debate by convincing 23 percent of audience members to change their minds.

    Arguing for the affirmative was Selgin, whose books include Less Than Zero: The Case for a Falling Price Level in a Growing Economy (2018) and Floored! How a Misguided Fed Experiment Deepened and Prolonged the Great Recession (2018).

    Ammous argued for the negative. An associate professor of economics at Lebanese American University, Ammous is also teaching an online course in bitcoin and Austrian economics.

    The Soho Forum, which is partnered with the Reason Foundation, is a monthly debate series at the SubCulture Theater in Manhattan's East Village.
