Big World
From Exchange Invest 2076 Tuesday, June 15th:
Perhaps now it can be clear why President Macron is so eagerly trying to tear the sovereign integrity of Britain apart as part of the EU’s vile Ulster Congo approach to Brexit. 
A recent opinion poll, commissioned by the Gaullist Le Millénaire think tank has shown that while the failing president is at 33% more popular than his current prime opponent for the Elysee, Marine Le Pen (28%) it seems the most popular politician amongst the French is none other than that denizen of perfidious Albion, Bori Johnson, the British Prime Minister! (It is easy to see why even the French prefer Boris to surly Macron).

Leading the Crowd
Former Nasdaq Vice Chairman David Weild IV is the “Father of the JOBS Act.” which laid the foundation for crowdfunding and forms of STO.
As a leading advocate for public markets, transparency, and above all access to capital for SMEs through large corporations, David has been at the forefront of the debate on listing in public markets for decades. 
Along the way David has priced over 1,000 equity offerings (including early offerings for Blackrock, Celgene, Nvidea, and Chesapeake Energy), working with legendary names such as Steve Jobs (at Pixar and of course, Apple). 
David has testified pretty much everywhere from the US Congress and SEC to the G-20, OECD, FESE, and AFE and is so frequently cited by regulators that space doesn’t permit…

EI Weekly Podcast 099
Betfair turns 21, Hong Kong Exchanges turn 21 too and pushes for greater diversity.
Podcasts This Week
HKEX celebrated their 21st birthday as a single group monopoly in the SAR this week. This is an excellent video worth 2 minutes to remind us what the parish does with a touch of cinematic glamour.
Future Design Podcast
In this episode, I speak with Taynaah Reis, the CEO of Moeda Seeds Bank from Brazil. She not only set out the blockchain-based mobile bank but stepped it up further to provide education for finance and business building.
PLY: Takatoshi Shibayama presents another excellent podcast in his series where “PLY” was previously a guest (Shift in Economic Paradigm - Future Design Podcast #018 with Patrick Young).
Victory or Death
20 years on from the first fintech bestseller “Capital Market Revolution!“… "Victory Or Death” is a must-read book for anyone interested in the intersection of Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and FinTech as part of the whole future of finance.
Parish Notes
The Japan Times
“Governance improvement at Toshiba has been very inadequate,” Akira Kiyota, the chief executive officer of Japan Exchange Group Inc., the bourse operator, said at a regular press briefing. “It’s damaging Japanese markets in the eyes of foreign investors.”
Macro Thoughts
Global Times
PLY: An interesting point - Chinese capitalism already losing stock pioneers before much of the world has really begun to appreciate the strength of China’s free market growth (with Communist oversight).
Visual Capitalist
Hindustan Times
We have a VDP of 25 people that includes five women. We take turns to guard the entry points of the village and also check for violations within.
Brexit: Done
“In response to a written question in the House of Lords on 13 November 2018 Lord Ahmad, on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, revealed that, since 1988, the UK had unilaterally withdrawn from 52 international treaties.” (Reaction: Britain must scrap the NI protocol and face down EU imperialism). 
“It is time to raise that number to 53.”
Of Interest
PLY: Yes it does and please can Brussels embrace it before it’s too late for the EU? (Other nation states can also have this moniker applied to them too!).
PLY: An amazing tale of a bungled launch plus a massive loss of code through a hack. BTW EA also noted a hack this week - it’s difficult to not suggest nefarious commercial actions in the hacker space trying to forcibly ‘open code’ the private IP of western developers is ongoing.
South China Morning Post
Crypto cynics will argue this is a whole new cycle of “Garbage In Garbage Out” processing. 
Slate Magazine
Bukele, however, has been pointing to a small Salvadoran beach town called El Zonte where residents have been using Bitcoin for nearly two years.
