Cypherpunkd Episode 018: “In Praise of Hawala” – J. Orlin Grabbe

Posted April 27th, 2011 in Cypherpunkd by admin

Nearly 10 years ago J. Orlin Grabbe wrote this excellent piece on Hawala. Now more than ever is this relevant. He pulls back the curtain on the propaganda put out by the U.S. Treasury Department and Western Union demonizing this agorist like competitive system of value transfer between voluntary associating individuals. His closing remark, classic as any famous movie quote, will strike a chord you will never forget.
