China is at the forefront of the world in its development of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). What does this mean for the global financial system? What implications could this new currency have for financial security and privacy in China and around the world? Should the U.S. develop a digital currency of its own?
We’re joined by Yaya J. Fanusie, Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) to explore. His research focuses on the national security implications of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Yaya spent seven years as both an economic and counterterrorism analyst in the CIA, where he regularly briefed federal law enforcement, U.S. military personnel, and White House-level policy makers—including President George W. Bush whom he personally briefed on terrorism threats.
