Bitcoin Makes No Sense As A Currency
Antonio Fatas, Professor of Economics, INSEAD

Roshan Kanesan speaks with Antonio Fatas, Professor of Economics at INSEAD, for his thoughts on the future of money, the role of central banks, dependence on the US Dollar, and the viability of a global unified currency.
