In this episode, Shimon follows up with the banking crisis and the new programs creating stimulus in the banking system. We then talk about some exciting recent advancements in artificial intelligence.
The Federal Reserve has opened up the market to unlimited liquidity for banks, resulting in a significant increase in deposits. The banks struggled to put the money to work due to low-interest rates, which made it difficult to generate yield. The Fed predicted that inflation was transitory and interest rates would remain low for a long time, but inflation started picking up due to increased money supply and the war in Ukraine. Inflation expectations could cause prices to rise dramatically if inflation is not tamed. The total money supply of U.S. dollars has constantly been increasing since 1981. A decrease in the growth rate causes the stock market to crash as interest rates increase, making it harder to fund projects. The recent liquidity injection into the banking system will impact Bitcoin and the stock market.
