Financial Repression Authority with Dominic Frisby

Special Guest: Dominic Frisby, Comedian & Financial Author.

Dominic Frisby

A comedian...
'Viciously funny and inventive,' The Guardian; 'Masterful,' Evening Standard; 'Great comedy talent,'Chortle. I am resident MC at London's oldest comedy venue, Downstairs At The King's Head, and have performed many full-length shows - both straight stand-up and character comedy. (Read some reviews).

A writer...
His book, Life After The State, ('Extraordinary', James Harding, director of BBC News; 'Incredibly thought-provoking,' Al Murray; 'Brilliant,' Steve Baker, MP) has nothing to do with comedy. It is a deadly serious dismantling of the way society is run. I am currently working on a second - Bitcoin - the Future of Money?

Dominic co-wrote and narrated the acclaimed documentary about the global financial crisis, The Four Horsemen - 1.25 million hits and counting. ('Excellent writing and narration from DF' Front Row). I write a weekly investment column for Moneyweek about gold and finance

Life After The State and Bitcoin Books

Now 45 years old and having been a comedian since his mid twenties, Dominic Frisby got interested in Economics and Finance in 2005 prior to the Financial Crisis. He subsequently became a devout Gold Bug and follower of Austrian Economics and Sound Money when he decided he needed to manage his money himself.

He concluded that:

"Money should be independent. The role of money is to be a medium of exchange, a store of wealth and a unit of account. But instead Money has become a political tool. The mixing of money and politics is very dangerous!"

Dominic feels strongly that many of our basic daily terminologies such as inflation, capitalism and socialism have become corrupted in their meaning and usage. The same is true for "money". "All of this has distorted people's behavior in an almost corrupt way" which he describes as only a comedian can.


DEBT BOMB - The Global Financial Crisis Stripped Bare by Dominic Frisby


Financial repression

Dominic Frisby defines Financial Repression as:

"The Government manipulation of money in order to achieve a specific goal. The current goal is to bailout the financial system for the excesses it created in the lead up to the 2008 Financial Crisis and also to bailout themselves."

"Governments have spend way more than they have earned and now have debt that is unpayable and the way they are paying it back is through manipulation, which other people call Financial Repression."


What The Future Holds

"This will go on for my life time and my children's life time .... until something else happens". Frisby says "don't shot the messenger but our leaders have gotten away with it so far and history shows leaders have always played tricks with money and debt". "Financial Repression will always exist as long as we have leaders, just like sinning will always exist - you just have to accept it!".


Social Government Entitlements

The government according to Dominic Frisby, who has spent his life within the UK's social entitlement program, should have nothing to do with Healthcare, Education and Welfare.

"All of this doesn't need to be as expensive as it is!"

"We need less state, more market and more ... 'people'!"


Conclusion

"We need to question everything, including the questioners questions and their dogma"
