Show Notes

I talk with Paul from Bitkiwi, who organise New Zealand's premiere bitcoin events. In this episode we talk about how children and young people learn about and interact with money, and how these early experiences can shape their world-view and their understanding of value.  The analogy of growing up as a digital native, or in a bilingual family is useful here.

As children naturally learn about sound money and Bitcoin-thinking amongst the backdrop of the legacy fiat system they grow up into adults ready to face a changing financial world.  Please note, this episode is from a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was quite timely as we come up to Bitkiwi 4 in Christchurch next weekend on March 25th at the Bealey Quarter from 2pm. I will be attending and hope to see you there.
