President Trump and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced a significant slate of upcoming stimulus measures, including deferred taxes and direct payments to Americans (although those details remain to be seen). 

On this episode of The Breakdown, 10T holdings CEO Dan Tapiero joins us to discuss:

  • Why the Federal Reserve has more tools in its toolkit than popular media and opinion are suggesting
  • Why the dollar’s global strength is a major concern
  • Why bitcoin is the only truly free market in the world
