> Chris mentioned that there are 72 Bitcoin currently locked in Lightning channels. The actual public Lightning capacity is closer to 5072 Bitcoin! This number doesn’t include private channel capacity so we can’t know the total number of Bitcoin on lightning.

Your analysis is spot on. The rabbit hole goes deeper. Neocolonialism all the way down. WorldBank's first borrower was France, conditioned on a domestic political intervention. France also around that time set up colonial fiat currencies that France has since manipulated to France's benefit at the expense of people using those currencies, even after those colonies gained "independence" as nations in the meantime, quietly stealing those countries' resources and the fruits of their people's labor.

I think I’ve listened to the episode about three times in the last three days now. While it’s not the first time I’ve heard about the IMF or World Bank, it’s the first time I’ve heard about them in real context. My first glimpse into this part of the economy was in a video by the YouTube channel Rare Earth (with Evan Hadfield) about the Bannana Republic. That video and this episode really challenged and changed my views on a lot of things, including the role the US plays in the world. Thank you!

Sats are a little tight for me right now so I can't make big boosts but I'm still listening! I hope you can find a way to make the show sustainable and keep the episodes coming.

Your discussion on the IMF reminded me of the book confessions of an economic hitman. Its an interesting autobiography from someone who was boots on the ground, check it out if you get the chance.
