Episode 46 • 🗺️ Geopolitics, Global Trade Networks and Australia’s Journalist Crackdown

Circle with number 46 in it

We’ve got a bumper episode for you this week. First, we begin our series on Geopolitics by doing a deep dive into trade wars, global commerce networks and China’s One-Belt, One-Road initiative. This covers a lot of ground, from military deployments of superpowers to a new Arctic trade route right through to the many ways that China are expanding their global trade network through debt-funded developments. We also discuss a number of tricky issues presented by our current geopolitical system.

On the news side, we look at the recent police raids on Australian journalists and discuss the consequences of our increasingly Orwellian ‘national security’ laws in the Western World. We also look at the latest in Bitcoin, some new developments out of EOS (including their new social media platform) and discuss the rapid growth in enterprise blockchain consortiums.

In our Privacy and Security segment, we discuss Unroll.me, a service to unsubscribe from all those pesky email lists. Finally, we check in on our intrepid reporter Jordan Cronje, who’s negotiating latrine duty between superpowers in Djibouti. What could possibly go wrong?
