“The only sign of hope when I’m looking at this is actually looking at something like bitcoin because you are able to circumvent all these different levels of restrictions, whether it’s the Isralis or the Palestinian Authority, or even Hamas.”

Palestine is a country ravaged by 4 wars in 15 years. However, military conflict is only part of the economic challenges the country faces. There is monetary warfare being waged against its citizens.

Crucial services that people in most developing countries take for granted, like simply transferring money, are almost impossible. It’s exacerbated by economic policies that have left Palestinians dependent on the outside world.

Can Bitcoin allow the people to peacefully fight back against arduous barriers and capital controls?

In this interview, I talk to Alex Gladstein and Fadi Elsalameen. We discuss declining economic conditions in Palestine, the underlying monetary problems, and how Bitcoin can help.

How to Clean Dirty Money | The Business of Crime

From crypto entrepreneurs in North Korea to major banks in the City of London, money laundering is everywhere.

Money laundering is about making illicitly earned cash look like it came from a legitimate source. It’s hard to say exactly, but the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that anywhere between $800 billion to $2 trillion of dirty cash is ‘washed’ through the global economy every year.

This is the Business of Crime, a new series looking at how different parts of the criminal economy function. In this episode, we’re looking at money laundering – how it’s done and why it’s so important for criminals around the world to clean their dirty cash.
