Hidden Repression, Human Rights & Bitcoin with Alex Gladstein

34m | May 1, 2024

This week Anthony talks with Alex Gladstein, Chief Strategy Officer at the Human Rights Foundation, about his new book Hidden Repression: How the IMF and World Bank Sell Exploitation as Development.

Alex shares why The Bank and the Fund’s “development and assistance” has been anything but helpful to developing countries, with them being plunged into debt traps and ultimately resulting in a shocking history of exploitation. He then moves on to discuss human rights, financial privilege, and Bitcoin, explaining why the latter offers a means of freedom that could even save lives.
