Fed Watch is a macro podcast with a clear contrarian thesis of a deflationary breakdown of the financial system leading to bitcoin adoption. We question narratives and schools of thought, and try to form new understanding. Each episode we use current events to question mainstream and bitcoin narratives across the globe, with an emphasis on central banks and currencies.

In this episode, recorded last week prior to all the Credit Suisse Drama, was very on point. We are joined once again by Nolan Bauerle. Our topics include a lengthy discussion on Bitcoin price and other macro charts like currencies and commodities. We read through several articles on the Silvergate, Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse banking troubles making insightful commentary throughout. Lastly, we watch a couple Jerome Powell clips from his testimony in front of Congress.
We make several very accurate calls on prices throughout the macro complex. Oil and bitcoin in particular standout.
In the Powell testimony, we highlight two important lines of questioning. One is focused on the NON-monetary policy aspects of high CPI, namely sanctions, energy markets, and government spending. Powell dodged the questions as well as he could, saying they were a political football he didn’t want to play with. But it remains that people are starting to realize that nearly all the CPI effect was driven by non-monetary issues.
The second important line of questioning came from the unlikable Senator Elizabeth Warren. She pressed Powell on how many people his targeted effect on employment would put out of work. It got a little bit heated. Even though Warren is an enemy of bitcoin, it was interesting to see Powell unable to answer decidedly.
