Italy draws ire, & is a cashless society all that utopian?

Italy has broken a barrier, becoming the first G7 nation to sign up for China’s Belt and Road Initiative; the move has drawn the ire of European lawmakers and the United States. Plus, as the Yellow Vest protests evolve, so too have the government’s security techniques. Madina Kochenova joins us on the ground in Paris to bring us the latest updates from the French capital. And as the chaos storms on in Venezuela, what are international buyers doing about oil in the Gulf of Mexico? Marin Katusa of Katusa Research lends us a hand to drill beneath the headlines. And finally, is a cashless society really all that out-there? Dushan Stojanovic joins RT’s Brent Jabbour to break down the concept and how blockchain’s infancy offers a route to this cashless utopia.
