Chuck Bentley - Trends That Threaten Our Financial Future
About this episode:
This week on the Crown Stewardship Podcast, we kick-off the first episode in our new mini-series on macro-economic trends called Gray Swans. Chuck Bentley examines this idea in his upcoming book, 7 Gray Swans: Trends that Threaten Our Financial Future. The term Gray Swan is used to describe a potentially very significant event, which if were to occur, could make a huge impact to the world, economy, and stock market. In this episode, Chuck talks about three of the Gray Swans he has identified: Modern Monetary Theory, Universal Basic Income and American Democratic Socialism.
- Is Modern Monetary Theory a sustainable economic system? Chuck explains how when the confidence of a currency collapses, so does the value.
- Universal Basic Income may sound like a compassionate solution, but you’ll hear the case that the government should not take the place of a Christian’s role toward charity.
- American Democratic Socialism is a worldview - you’ll learn how it compares to a Biblical worldview.
