Mati Greenspan, the founder of Quantum Economics, offered his insights regarding the apparent connections between the two events. “So far, I don’t see any direct correlation between the coronavirus and crypto prices.” Instead, Greenspan pointed to the current altcoin rally as an indicator of a growing appetite for higher-risk investments: “In my estimation at the…

Bloomberg-Clinton 2020 Sends One Signal to Bernie Voters: ‘Screw You!’

Matt Drudge reported Saturday that Michael Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton for vice president – if he gets the Democratic nomination. While it’s unlikely Bloomberg will make it that far, picking Clinton would hardly give him a unity ticket. A Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would keep Democrats in Wall Street’s good graces. But there’s nothing in it for progressive Democrats. Sources close to Michael Bloomberg’s campaign say he’s considering tapping Hillary Clinton for vice president. That’s according to Matt Drudge of The Drudge Report. Drudge’s source says the Bloomberg campaign found the…
