Episode Two: The War in your Wallet: The Real Invisible Hand

In this podcast, Marc and Tom take a look at  a rarely discussed, structural vulnerability in advanced societies:  the payments and settlements system. We first put this system in the historical context of economic warfare, then look at some potential forms of attacks, followed by a discussion with Michelle Couturier about possible local defensive measures. The podcast is the third part of our series on Sixth Domain warfare.
