Today’s guest on the Expat Money Show is Peter Young, the Managing Director of the Free Cities Foundation. He leads the operational management of the foundation, with oversight over project delivery, communications and finance.
Before joining the Free Cities Foundation, he spent most of his career based in Beijing supporting trade links between the UK and China.
TODAY’S CONVERSATION WITH PETER
- How the growth of countries like Hong Kong, and Singapore have been so successful and why most countries chose not to adopt this kind of system even though they find them inspiring.
- Focusing on building a new Hong Kong and a new Singapore to give more people the choice regarding the kind of place they want to live in and what that might look like for the future.
- What do Honduras, El Salvador and West Africa have in common when it comes to governments and how their history can change what’s coming.
- What is a ZEDE? What do they do? Where are they located? And why should you even care?
- Where is the focus now for Free Private Cities? What can be done to ensure they are successful and that governments don’t come along and wipe them out with the stroke of a pen!
- Countries and projects that have ZEDEs, like Honduras, and what happens when they are started by a government that is no longer in power.
- How all the work that goes into building a ZEDE can be disrupted and why having a strong legal foundation is so important.
- El Salvador… how are things on the ground with their adoption of Bitcoin?
- Panama and cryptocurrency. What does the future hold for this Latin American country?
- Living in the most efficient and effective manner possible and what that can ultimately look like in the years to come.
- Lastly, we talk about Free Private Cities. What does the organization stand for? How do they work? And how do they actually help and make changes in these countries?
