In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “On the Margin,” Michael Ippolito, co-founder, Blockworks, sits down with Steve Van Metre who presents the other side of the popular macro narrative that inflation is coming.

Steve’s analysis is heavily focused on quantitative easing (QE), and how that program is designed to cause lower interest and a stronger dollar. In this episode they cover how the mechanism behind QE works, why it traps dollars in the system, and how that ultimately leads to deflation.

“On the Margin” is a two-part show. Once a week, Mike interviews industry experts, and then at the end of the week he is joined by co-host Tyler Neville where they break down the top crypto and macro stories. Episodes go live every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
