423: Retirement Funds In The Age Of Bitcoin with Matt Dines

Many people are aware of the problems that plague public pensions and the social security program in America today, but not many are focused on the stress that private retirement accounts are under and what that means for Boomers who are quickly approaching retirement. Matt Dines joins the show to break down the structural fragility inherent in private retirement accounts driven by cookie cutter allocation strategies and stress in the bond markets. Matt also explains how he thinks bitcoin can be a bridge to help save retirement accounts by convincing investors to park their dollars in bitcoin-backed lending desks.
