Jem talks about the nature of money and how Bitcoins are revolutionizing the way we engage in trade with each other in this TED talk.
Jem isn’t exactly an Austrian economist, but I find his speech to be compelling and important in a few ways. First, the crowd Jem is addressing are the movers and shakers of the media business. TED talks are fairly elitist in nature, so it is very nice to see a person denouncing our current monetary system to a crowd of globalists. Second, I find his delivery style to be quite engaging.
Hopefully Jem made a few converts with his speech.
