Ultimate Insider Larry Summers Joins Bitcoin Firm

Larry Summers, former US Treasury Secretary and Fed president contender, has just joined the Digital Currency Group along with bitcoin developer Gavin Andresen as senior advisors. Digital Currency Group studies blockchain technology and finance and has recently acquired Coindesk, the largest bitcoin news site as well as Consensus, the largest bitcoin conference in the world.

Larry Summers is the ultimate insider and one of the most respected personalities in the Keynesian economic world. In 2013 he was the far and away favorite to become the next Federal Reserve president as Ben Bernanke’s successor. For some reason he declined the coveted and most powerful position in economics opening the door for Janet Yellen. This is his statement for declining the nomination: "I have reluctantly concluded that any possible confirmation process for me would be acrimonious and would not serve the interest of the Federal Reserve, the Administration or, ultimately, the interests of the nation's ongoing economic recovery."



It is doubtful that one would turn his back on the pinnacle of ones craft because there may be some opposition. What's more likely is he removed himself from what he saw as a train wreck waiting to happen. He could easily let Yellen deal with the unsustainable bubbles and position himself as a savior after the crash occurs.

His new role as an advisor to this crypto currency outfit dovetails nicely into my theory on a possible US government issued E Dollar. The E Dollar could phase out cash, opening the door to negative rates, and a host of other benefits for the government and banks. A Federal Reserve president who introduced the E Dollar, the savior of the currently doomed monetary system, would be touted as a hero

We have laid out why we think bitcoin could be an E Dollar beta test as well as the interest by central banks in the concept. The fact that we have a likely candidate for the next Fed president, who suspiciously backed out contention in 2013, that is now taking on such a prominent role in a blockchain research and media company only strengthens our conviction that the E Dollar is a real possibility.

  1. Funny that be declined the fed chair because he didn't want to interfere with the ongoing recovery..... If he is joining bitcoin its to destroy it from within. Wouldn't touch this guy with a 10 foot pole.

  2. Looks like a real possibility.

    I think it will depend on the head of state the US people elect.

    The cabal won't hand such power to a Trump administration.

    Better own physical hard assets when Trump wins. Only (nuclear) option he got once he gets to office is go full Austrian on the the US economy or they will burn all of it to the ground.

  3. Larry knows the end of the current system is coming. Jeremy Rifkin lays this out in his book, The Zero Margin Cost Society.

    Larry was told the end of centralized systems are coming to an end. His response? "Well looks like we need to allow monopolies".

    Vertically integrated systems are dying. The lawlesness we are witnessing, the big money grab....it's because the elite know the system is dead. They are taking what they can before the big reset. Transparency is coming. The blockchain will provide it and no one can stop it.
