Econintech is a libertarian think tank in Venezuela, one of the only of its kind. They were the first organization to promote Bitcoin as a means of helping combat hyperinflation and advocate for free markets and sound banking. I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Rafael Acevedo and Luis Cirocco, the founders of Econintech, alongside 71 Republic’s Vice President of Operations, Indri Schaelicke, at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama. We discussed the roles of Bitcoin and gun control in the Venezuelan crisis, what Americans can do to help, and whether or not there is any glimmer of hope for the socialist country. A transcript (lightly edited for clarity) and audio file of the interview are both below.
