The Federal Reserve and the financial markets can be hard enough to understand under normal circumstances, but throw in the events of recent months and it gets downright overwhelming. We invited Andy Edstrom, author of Why Buy Bitcoin, to walk us through how the Fed operates and how it effects the markets. What are quantitative easing and repos? Are we headed towards hyperinflation? How long can they keep all of this up? Does Bitcoin fix this?

We discuss these questions and more!
