Today’s motion is “I largely approve the US government’s fiscal and monetary response to the ongoing economic crisis.”
We recently had another debate on a similar topic, between Qiao Wang and Jimmy Song.
While Qiao argued for the pro-establishment view, he still saw lots of issues with the government’s intervention in the markets. In the debate, Qiao was playing the role of a devil’s advocate, to help the crypto community understand the pro-intervention perspective.
In today’s debate, however, the pro-intervention guest (Jonathan "JP" Padilla) is a Kenseyan, has worked for the Whitehouse, and is very supportive of the government actions during the ongoing crisis.
The anti-intervention guest (Nick White) today is also not a hard-core libertarian like Jimmy from the previous debate. So today’s debate is more consensus-building than that previous debate.
Be sure to also check out our previous episodes too. We’ve featured some of the best known thinkers in the crypto space.
