Why The Royal Commission Into The Banks Is A Joke
“I’m so angry with you I could spit!” That was the response I received from a lady one Saturday morning after I posted a blog in April, 2016, ‘Do We Need a Royal Commission into the Banks?’. I was minding my own
What The Hell Is Bitcoin?
If I had to explain bitcoin in one sentence it would be this: bitcoin is like a wheel without a ‘hub’. It’s a peer-to-peer system where all transactions (spokes) occur between users directly without going via an intermediary such as a bank
Webinar – ‘Achieving Certainty in Uncertain Times’
Three weeks ago was exactly thirty years since the 1987 stock market crash, AKA ‘Black Monday’. Incredibly, if you look at any thirty-year chart, it’s almost impossible to see now. It’s just drifted into the distance like a dog without a name.
