The One Belt, One Road to superpower (E1347)

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss reviews of Bruno Maçães’ new book, ‘Belt and Road: A Chinese World Order’, about the rise of China to superpower status through trade. The “nine arrows crisscrossing Eurasia’ was a vision first realized by Deng Xiaoping who saw a “world organized as a network.” What does a rising power mean in a world where a fading hegemon is always reluctant to share?

In the second half, Max interviews Michael Perklin, Chief Information Security Officer at ShapeShift.io, about the latest on the curious story of the Canadian exchange, QuadrigaCX. As the widow of the CEO who allegedly died in India (where death certificates can be bought for 100 rupees) seeks to gain access to the cold wallets that only the (allegedly) recently departed CEO controlled, what should have been the standard security protocols in this sort of situation? And would employment of standard security protocols have spared the exchange users of nearly 200 million in losses?
