Inside the episode

Lyn Alden of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy has quickly risen to fame in the Bitcoin universe for her sharp analysis on long-term macro trends and brings plenty of data to back up her analysis.

She’s one of our favorite macro and economics minds. Global macro events have such a strong interplay with crypto. In order to understand crypto, we need to understand the big picture

We ask Lyn about the changes forces around the US Dollar, as demand and supply of the Dollar is less understood and less stable than ever before.

We also ask Lyn about the relationship between the position of the U.S. Dollar as the world reserve currency, and the social unrest found inside the U.S. borders. It turns out, that the U.S. Dollar as the world reserve currency is not the best situation for those that reside inside the country!

We bring up Ray Dalio's Long Term Debt Cycles mental model, and ask Lyn to connect it to the Fourth Turning Theory, in an attempt to discover some of the hidden forces behind the social unrest found in America.
