"Cash shortages. Nigeria is struggling with severe cash shortages, with riots erupting across the country just days before a presidential election. People are still not turning to the national digital currency known as the Ira, which promised to improve retail payments. The digital iteration of the naira, which was issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria back in October of 2021, hasn't had the most impressive start, and adoption has been slow. But even if people in Nigeria wanted to turn to the Ira, transaction options with these Central Bank digital currency or CBDC are limited. Quote, they want to put it out there to get people to use it, but people don't have enough places to use it. Said Nigerian native Adi soji salangi, a director at renaissance capital, an emerging and frontiers market focused investment bank that has a branch in Nigeria. There may be a dearth of merchants willing to accept the Ian Ira. According to London based Varun Paul, Central Bank digital currency and market infrastructure director Ed institutional crypto custody platform fireblocks. Paul, who previously worked at the Bank of England as an economist and head of its FinTech hub, is now leading fireblocks efforts to build out infrastructure for Central Bank digital currency, integration. He continued. So you have this chicken and egg problem. End quote. At the end of 2022, the outgoing president of Nigeria, president Buhari's government, decided to change the currency design and swap out old bank notes for new ones. The slow changeover caused cash machines to dry out quickly, and the government placed limits on withdrawals. The country's $220 billion informal economy stalled, and as the crisis worsened, the already weak Nara fell even further against the U.S. dollar on the local foreign exchange black market. Nigeria's informal economy thrives on cash. And so cash shortages have left everyone from street vendors to bus drivers frustrated, so long he added. While protests in Nigerian cities turned violent, citizens also took to Twitter to complain about not being able to access basic necessities like fuel or food without the cash. One year after the launch of the Ira, less than one half of 1% of Nigerians were using it, Bloomberg reported. By last August, the E naira was used to carry out transactions worth about $9.3 million. And while that might seem like a small number, it's even smaller when you compare it against 2020 when Nigerians conducted $26 billion worth of ATM transactions. Since then, the Central Bank has tried to push adoption. The Central Bank of Nigeria announced back in December that it would limit cash withdrawals for individuals to around $217 per day. And for corporate organizations to just over a $1000 per day, by January, and encouraged banks to turn customers to cash alternatives like the en Ira. Despite the Central Bank's efforts, people haven't turned to the E and Ira, though, is a solution during the current cash shortage, because the necessary infrastructure wasn't in place to foster adoption. Both salon and Paul said, quote, I think there's a couple of things they may have wished they did better, Paul said, referring to Nigeria's leaders. He continued. One is they went out faster than anyone else, whereas other central banks around the world are researching a lot longer. People might have needed to be educated more on the benefits of a digital naira, according to Paul. In June of 2021, Nigeria announced it was kicking off a Central Bank digital currency pilot program before the end of the year. And a Central Bank of Nigeria officials said the institution had been researching a digital currency for two years at that point. Just four months later, the Ira went live. Meanwhile, the European Union set up a two year research and experimentation project for a digital Euro ahead of deciding whether to issue one. If it does decide to go ahead, officials have said it could take several more years to launch. The UK is currently seeking public feedback on its recently published multiyear plan for a digital pound. But back to our story. In addition to issues of infrastructure, not everyone can readily access to eat and Ira, so wonky said, quote, the challenge is that the wallet requires you to have a smartphone and use the Internet. But think of the people you're trying to send money to. They're relatively poor, right? It's a long key said. Continuing. So the cost of the smartphone, the cost of the Internet, these are just some of the hindrances to get some of these things up and running. Estimates show that the number of Nigerians with a smartphone may be anywhere between 25 and 40 million. Africa's most populous nation, Nigeria, is home to more than 219 million people, with nearly half over the age of 18 and old enough to have a phone. There have been some attempts at expanding infrastructure digital payments with the Ira. In September of 2022, popular African payments platform flutter wave out of the currency as a payment option for merchants. Earlier this week, Bloomberg reported that the Central Bank was on the lookout for new tech partners to build out a new system to support the unira. But salons said that quote, there's a lot of work that needs to happen, both at the customer end and also at the merchant end to really get it up and running. Something Nigeria's next president will have to grapple with. And that's our show for today. Thank you very much.

"I think that this is a very, I think this is a very obvious path of what it is they're going to try to do. And I also don't think it's coincidence that basically the Nigerian government is flowing the United Nations playbook. They're literally following it. Exactly what it is they recommend it recommended. I don't think that is a coincidence at all. And just to say one last thing, right? At the top of it, their slogan is prosperity for all. I would make the case that it's really prosperity for them. As long as they have control, then it's prosperity for all. Anyway, so back to this thread, Anita says Bitcoin price surges during a war on cash in Nigeria. The Nigerian government together with bank have been trying to push the adoption of the digital naira, which is the country's Central Bank digital currency. As I learned during the African Bitcoin Africa, Bitcoin conference in Ghana in December 2020, 2022, the digital naira has not been very well received by the population for different reasons like privacy concerns, mistrust in the government, mostly because millions of people are on banked and depend on cash. The actions by the CBN in its cash to society campaign are getting harsher. After limiting the amount of money that can be withdrawn at ATMs last year, existing bills are being replaced with new and lower denomination banknotes. Nigerians had until January 24th to swap for the new notes, the long queues and complaints about insufficient time led to a deadline extension to February 10th. The imposed measures are resulting in a catastrophic monetary crisis in Nigeria. Good money drives drives bad money out. A single Bitcoin was selling for roughly 17.5 million Nigerian naira around 38,000. Now it's even higher, by the way, which is about 40% higher than the global average Bitcoin of 23,000. Low Bitcoin liquidity since Nigeria was the leader in Bitcoin adoption in Africa in 2022 and people are aware of the preciousness of Bitcoin. They are not selling them with the result that not

"60%, although the news was celebrated by the Bitcoin community on social media, the inflated Bitcoin prices may not reflect a heightened demand for the asset, but it continued demand for the U.S. dollar as the country's local currency suffers. Now, I disagree because I've seen this happen a thousand times where the price, the premium of Bitcoin actually increases in countries that have made it illegal. Anyways, it all started when a number of media outlets drew attention to the high which they attributed to cash withdrawal limits placed by the Nigerian government on its citizens as it worked on swapping old banknotes for new ones, but the ATM would draw limits were initially imposed on December 6th last year and the government has been easing the limit since before doubling down again in January. If Bitcoin demand went up as a result of the cash jam in the country, the premium should have spiked as the ATM limits were imposed in early December. Quote, but essentially what we were seeing was that it was just this constant premium. And I think that's like, wrong in

And for anybody who doesn't know, I'll give you guys a little bit of the context, right? So the Nigerian government rolled out a CBDC Central Bank digital currency, and that Central Bank digital currency has not been adopted by the Nigerian population. And it seems like they have a 20 to 30% adoption rate of Bitcoin and chick coins, right? So obviously this kind of sent the government into a panic and what they did and they recently just announced it. They made withdrawing cash illegal. Or it's going to be legal. They've already announced it. And they're hoping that they're going to push more and more people into CBDCs. And we already know that they've previously had a very hostile stance towards Bitcoin. Now, what's really interesting, though, is still that it's not working. And then this kind of goes back to a theory of the case that we've been screaming from the rooftops simply Bitcoin for a while now, which is incentives or stronger than coercion. The reality is that a CBDC does not solve the inflation problem. It doesn't solve anything. And in Nigeria, you have double digit inflation, right? So what is it really there for? Well, it's really there because CBDCs are an attempt by governments in order to maintain their privilege of being able to create money for free that their populist house has to work for. And then all the unintended consequences of being able to issue money at no cost, right? One of them being the endless wars, right? So this was an interesting article that came out by coindesk. And it's called Nigeria's Bitcoin premiums, better reflect countries demand for the dollar, not crypto. Now, fine. But what's really interesting, though, is that every time a country has banned every time a country has banned Bitcoin, right? The premiums of Bitcoin in that country go up. Now, if you think about it, if you think about price, which is basic supply and demand, right, gives the price of things. If it makes it illegal, you would think, okay, the demand of that would decrease. Well, no, think about how high the demand for Bitcoin would be if your country had

I went over to Ukraine four times to train Ukrainian soldiers. There was a Ukrainian Polish battalion with my unit in Kosovo. I respect the Ukrainian people. I like them. It's most corrupt place I've ever been. I mean, I mean, Nigerian princes in awe of its corruption. And look, I understand there's a huge history there. I understand everybody's got their arguments. I don't think there's any good reason for Russia to invade with a couple armored cores and kill a bunch of people. And I don't have a problem with Ukrainians fighting back. And I don't have a problem. In theory, with Americans supporting them. However, you can't just dump $45 billion into Ukraine. That's crazy. And the idea that a McConnell says, it's a Republican's number one priority. Dude, it's not. It's not even in my top 5.

What is one key thing for each of you you think somebody should really take away from your reporting? I think the key thing is for me is the fact that this experiment needs some form of intervention to make it gain traction. And so far that intervention is not coming. And that until we get that intervention, due to currency usage, for example, in Nigeria is going to be a dream. And they are awareness is not just going to usability is key. All right, now the usability argument is very little for the user currency. So for anyone launching a data currency, you have to think of the usability question and assets before you introduce it.

"Is that correct? Yeah, that's relatively correct. Then they jump population about 45% of our adults have no bank accounts. And so the Central Bank talks to the 5% of the people who don't have a bank account, but we have at least 450 million more buys subscribers. At least it's 1% of the population have the phones. So the Central Bank felt the phone could be a good leverage to drive financial inclusion by creating an ENA. Which can you can basically use your phone to assess and pay for services through that platform. So that was the idea to increase financial inclusion. By leveraging mobile telecommunications. But it doesn't sound like that's what's happening. There's been a lot of challenges awareness is there. And as Ruth said, there's also some level of suspicion, some level of lack of trust in the Central Bank. And then basically affordability affordability in the sense that, yeah, everybody uses the phone, but not necessarily everybody that uses their phone kind of for to load the phone with in error. So that has been a lot of people I just indifferent about the in error, usability is a big issue. Most people who have phones are already used to using their backend apps and alternatives from the banking sector. And also if you consider that Internet penetration in Nigeria is less than 50% and you need Internet to use the admirer. So that could also be a reason for why adoption is very low in Nigeria. Ruth, what has the government been doing to try to drive adoption? So currently, the government is trying to target the transportation sector and specifically the tricycle operators and my guess is that the government is targeting because they are everywhere both in the rural area and the urban area. I live in Abuja. And they try to one of the biggest means of transportation here, the capital city. So I'm going to ask a completely I have clearly never been to Nigeria question. When I hear tricycle, I think of bike with three wheels. When you say tricycle, what do you mean? Yes, bike with three wheels. Hollywood movies. I think India in Hollywood movies. And if you go to any rural area in Nigeria, you will find them. So it makes sense that this tricycles would be government focused for driving adoption. I'm learning so much right now. So Anthony Ruth, you've both been reporting on Nigeria financial system for a long time. We have interviewed some folks who have written about what's been happening to the attempts by the Central African Republic to launch its own digital currency as well as they've been trying to follow El Salvador in adopting Bitcoin. We've talked on this podcast about the fact that lots of other countries are thinking about doing digital currencies of their own with mostly mixed results, right? Like some of them, including the U.S. are like, ah, we're trying to figure this out. Some of them like China are like, we can make you use this. So there's a lot of range in terms of the success of adoption with the latest attempts by the Nigerian government to drive people to use this in Ira. Are you seeing, are you starting to see any results? Or is this still a case of in a year from now? It's still going to be a tiny fraction of the population. That's difficult to say, Central Bank is quite optimistic. But yeah, it has been, it depends on what happens going forward. Would we likely see people have suggested that this the government intervenes by, for example, paying half salaries salaries below is set in rage. In the center of the government takes such an action that will kind of like we are likely to see high-tech operates in the in area. So it depends on what actions the Central Bank or the government is going forward to compel usage of the inara. And if that happens then, we'll see a significant difference. But if that doesn't happen, then there's still going to be huge resistance in the tech operate for the error. It also sounds, you know, there's a quote in your story from one of the drivers of these motorized tricycles, which is, you know, why is the government asking us to collect E naira? I thought the government said cryptocurrency is bad. And I thought that was so interesting because it's like it can be hard to explain to somebody how this is different from them using Bitcoin on their phones. How is the government trying to help people understand the difference? Is the government trying to help people understand the difference? The government has just said that this is different from cryptocurrency. That's it. So most people I can't I can't explain to you how different this is to cryptocurrency. And if the government that if the Central Bank that is introduced in the indirect is not communicating well with those telling us how different this is to other forms of digital currency out there, then I think that's a that's a problem. I would never describe myself as a copywriter, but I do think it's been helpful for me to think about the difference here as there are going to be people who are going to write me angry emails about that, feel free crypto at Bloomberg dot net. But what I'm going to say is that digital currencies like the Ira are crypto issued by a government. Whereas tokens like Bitcoin, ether, Dogecoin, are things for which there is no Central Bank like entity. Subscribe to my private current. Private currencies. And private is the currency. Indeed. And so, you know, I think these sorts of distinctions might not matter to the person on the other end of a transaction, but governments get really fussed about them because as you said at the beginning, one of the concerns that governments often have is the stability of their own banking systems. And various regulators around the world, not just in Nigeria, have definitely expressed concerns that cryptocurrencies could pose some kind of threat to real or perceived to the financial system. Yeah, that banks commercial and this year have been very slow in adopting in pushing creating awareness for the in era because there's no incentive for them to do that on the out of the banks that put on the in and eira wallet is not counted as cash on the books of the banks. This is a really, really important point. And I think it's something that a lot of people don't necessarily pay attention to, which is the banks themselves are not huge fans by default. Of this kind of digital money for the exact reason that you're describing, which is they don't necessarily have the ability to make money. On digital money, right?

"nigerian" Discussed on Bloomberg Crypto
"About a year ago, Nigeria introduced a digital version of its official currency. The naira. The introduction of the so called E naira was partly a response to concerns that the rising popularity of crypto in the country was going to threaten the banking system. Now, there are a few countries experimenting with their own versions of digital money, including the Central African Republic, which we've talked about on this show, China, Jamaica, The Bahamas, and various islands in the eastern Caribbean. Other countries, including where I am in the United States, are in the studying and thinking deep thoughts about feasibility, phase of things. So how's it going for Nigeria and the Ira? Let's ask Bloomberg reporter Ruth ulundi. It's been one year and only 0.5% of the population is just either in Iraq. And Bloomberg Nigeria bureau chief Anthony osi Brown. Disability is key. All right, now the usability argument is very little for the user currencies.

"To a professor who tweeted out. That wretched woman talking about Queen Elizabeth and her bloodthirsty throne have f'd generations of my ancestors on both sides of the family and she supervised a government that sponsored the genocide my parents and siblings survived May she die in agony. She also tweeted, I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying, may her pain be excruciating. Now, again, I don't want to waste a lot of time on doctor ouzou Anya, a Nigerian born U.S. professor, a privileged professor, and boy is she privileged. You ought to read her college degrees.

Steve Bannon Says We Need a Real Investigation for January 6
"I wanted to just ask you a quick follow-up question because I know you're very busy man and I think that you have a unique perspective here on January 6th. So obviously they're charging you. You've been found guilty, right? You've been found guilty of contempt of Congress. However, nobody has ever had any legitimate prosecution done to them, jail time, sentencing or anything done to them. As far as I know. So we know that once you appeal, it appears that this is going to be something that you can win. However, why are they doing this to you? When they've never convicted anybody, nobody's ever, I mean, I convicted, nobody's ever going to jail over this. So why are they doing this to you and what is your thoughts on January 6th? Is it a hoax or should there be a legitimate investigation in the January 6 just not the way that these Democrats are doing it? Officer there has to be, I think, a detailed and thorough and proper investigation of it and what I mean by that is a real congressional committee. Remember, people in the minds will think back to board gate and other Iran contra and other big investigations who had the way Congress is set up. You have a majority who's a majority. Now it's the Democrats, but you have minority minority has a ranking member had minority council. They have the right to cross examine the right to see the evidence, all that. We need a real investigation on January 6th and by that, I mean, you know, how to actually babbitt get murdered. What's the Intel? What would the Intel briefings? We know from House members who have already sent a letter to preserve your documents. The house members on the administration committee saying, hey, we've got intelligence briefings the day before and a couple of days before that that had no idea of any of this stuff that was going on totally different than what happened. We need to know the FBI's involvement. We need to know the CIA's involvement DHS involved that what happened to the president Trump's call for the National Guard troops. We need to find the 14,000 hours of footage that hasn't been released. There needs to be. There is going to be in January with the new Congress when we take control. There's going to be a real committee. I think headed by a Jim Jordan or Matt Gaetz and you're going to have, you're going to have Democrats in the minority as ranking members, they'll have their and I think part of that's got to be to get to adjudicate what also happened on 3 November as part of it. Because remember, the January 6th was a build up that came from the big steel. You've got to get to Arizona. You got to get to Wisconsin where they're trying to do certified air. They're trying to be certified in Arizona. So this investigation has to be thorough. And I think what it has to go by the rules that traditionally had in Congress.

Can you explain to the listeners what happened and why this is a hit job and not an actual, I would say an actual charge with merit. Well, look, for the audience, maybe I haven't solved the details. I was found guilty on Friday in a federal court on misdemeanors related to the contempt of Congress, the jury, which was a working class journey and we got the book. We never put on a defense. So the jury, I respect their decision, given what they heard in the courtroom. The courtroom was essentially nothing. I mean, it was just basically what the subpoena that called me to Congress to testify and then my lawyers letters saying I couldn't list because president Trump exerted executive privilege.

Flashy Preacher Robbed in Pulpit During Sermon
"I want to talk about this pastor in New York. Now, you know, when I first read that a pastor was robbed, thugs came into his church, looked like an online church. I guess he has members there. And I got to read more of the story is developing because there's more stuff coming out as we speak. But when I heard that a pastor was robbed at gunpoint, who came in on live stream, robbed him, had everybody get on the ground. I felt bad for the pastor. I said, man, that ain't right. Look at his brother out here trying to do his thing, preach the gospel of the lord Jesus Christ, and he got brothers in that robbing and stealing and trying to kill him. It make any sense, but you know what I'm saying. But then, when I read the report and he said that they robbed when they came in and they were still a jury says police reported two suspects took $400,000 worth of jewelry from the bishop, his wife and possible other church gores. Now, you know, these other people ain't got nowhere near $400,000 worth of jewelry. However, the past and his wife probably got $399,000 worth of jury and everybody else in their wedding rings or whatever the case may be. Had the rest of the money.

Steve Bannon Was Wrongly Convicted
"So Steve Bannon was being charged, he is charged with contempt of Congress. And we all have seen the justice system in these leftists environments where people can kill other people, people can burn down, buildings, people can do just about anything, sell drugs, use drugs, shoot up needles in front of everybody, you name it. A guy can threaten it to kill a Congress member. I mean, people can do all kinds of stuff, but if you're a Republican, and this political climate, they want to bury you. So article from Politico is his former attorney general Eric holder under Obama charged with contempt of Congress and nothing ever happened to him. This is facts. This is not Brandon Tatum just running his mouth. It says the house has voted to hold attorney general Eric holder contempt of Congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal. The first time Congress has taken such a dramatic move against a sitting cabinet official. The vote was 255 to 67 with 17 Democrats voting in support of the criminal contempt resolution, which authorized Republicans, leaders, Republican leaders, to seek criminal charges against holder. The Democrats support came despite a round of behind the scenes lobbying by Senate or senior White House and justice officials, as well as pressure from party leaders to support holder to Republicans, blank blank and blank blank. I don't want to say their name, a voted against the contempt resolution. Nothing happened holder. So we could draw the conclusion that nothing should happen to Steve Bannon.

Because they are not answering critical questions that need to be answered. Because Ashley babbitt was murdered and nobody's talking about it. I did a video about this on my YouTube channel. The officer Tatum on YouTube. You can look it up. The police officer who killed Ashley babbitt and cold blood in my opinion. Completely lied in front of the world. I showed it on the video, he said that his view was obstructed and he didn't know who was coming through the door they were beating down the door. There were literally capitol police standing in front of the door before Ashley babbitt climbed attempted to climb through the window.

Hi Charlie, I'm a 66 year old retired police officer and was once an enthusiastic supporter of yours. Therefore, it pains me to say goodbye to you forever. Okay. Your characterization of those over 50 is being warmongers and neocons are simply because our desire to defend a sovereign country against evil, murdering despot is not only insulting, but erroneous as well. First of all, I didn't say that. It's ridiculous. I said that over 50 tens to want more military intervention than under 30. And I said that's a generalization, but it's not a rule, whatever. He said, quote, if Russian warships or submarines parked off the coast of Florida, started lobbing shells around your condo in Florida, killing innocent people, wouldn't you want someone with the power to come and defend you to your aid? Of course I'd like that. We also have a United States military to try to prevent against that. That's not the point. I'm sure the Ukrainian people want support. I'm sure the Yemenis people want support. I'm sure the Nigerians in Africa who are being slaughtered once support. I'm sure the Iranian people want support. There's a lot of corners of the world where we can make arguments for military intervention.

We Have a Supply-and-Demand Problem With Racism in America
"The reason why The Associated Press does articles like this is because we have a supply and demand problem with racism in America. We've incredibly low supply of racism, where people think just because you walk into a boardroom as a young woman, people think you might be working for the museum. In fact, you should take that exactly the opposite, by the way. That's what's so amazing. Is that she looks at to be offended, she should take that as a compliment. That she's able to be rich at a young age that she is so different that everyone else had to wait the rest of their life to be rich, that she gets to go into a room that only she is like, yet she looks that as a sign of oppression. That just shows how sick these people are when they educate children. That one thing that The Associated Press is saying is the most worst thing that could happen. You walking into a museum adviser board meeting, and some of the people asked her if she was a fundraiser for the museum, where she could say actually you know I'm not. Myself made millionaire. And I'm proud of it. Isn't that the whole kind of like aura of Hollywood that they try to put forward? Or at least the kind of the caricature, like the Ruth Bader Ginsburg energy, like I'm gonna be able to do whatever I want to do. That's where I really don't understand this whole kind of like feminist movement. It's like the feminist went from like, we're gonna take on the whole world is we're gonna complain about everything. So speaking of the supply and demand issue, the bishop of fake racial hate crimes is Jussie Smollett. Now, the real downside for Jesse is he has to go to prison with his attacker for the rest of his life. So Jesse has to go to jail with the person who brutally and mercilessly attacked him at 2 a.m. and a Chicago morning. Remember, Jussie, this is him at the trial saying that he's not suicidal and he is innocent. Play cut 35. Okay, I am not suicide. I am innocent, and I'm not suicidal man. If I did this, then it means that I stuck my fist in the fears of black Americans in this country for over 400 years and the fears of the LGBTQ community. Your honor I respect you and I respect the jury, but I did not do this. And I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me, when I go in there, I did not do it to myself. And you must all know that. Yeah, but you did do something to yourself. You fake and staged a hate crime, and then you wrote a check to the Nigerian brothers for mugging supplies.

I'm telling you, I gotta say, what is wrong with Harvey? I've been saying it for a while. We saw how in the bag he was against Britney Spears. Then he rallys at like he was behind her. He wasn't after he was allegedly accepting money from Britney's dad to put disparaging content about Britney on the TMZ website and show. I've got three seats.

May not be buying the testimony from one of the Nigerian brothers against Jesse because he dealt drugs to Jesse. What's worse, Harvey, dealing the drugs or being the person who takes the drugs. Come on, why would people on a jury have an issue with the person who procures the drugs and not what the celebrity who asked the person to get them? I don't think the jury thinks that much worse of a guy who's not selling drugs per se, but getting them for Jesse. It makes no sense to me. I think he's reaching into bad reach.

"Ah, lot of Nigerian scams will start off where the scam artist first asks for a relatively small amount of money. Because they say, Hey, there's a huge amount of money in this country Has your name on it. It's It's clearly not meant for you, but because it has your name on it, we can get it to you. And so on. And so on the idea being that because you've already made an initial commitment, you would be willing to make it of larger, subsequent commitment, and this can happen not just in scams that can have it and completely Legitimate, although sometimes questionably ethical applications fifth in the principles is the principle of liking, which means we're more easily influenced by people We like. This is not brain surgery, right? If you like someone you're more willing to agree with them and to do things that they need you to do. Now, child. Any states. There are three factors that go into whether or not we'll actually like someone First. We tend to like people who are similar to ourselves, the more alike they are to ourselves, at least to a certain extent. Morally tend to like them Second. We like people who compliment us because we're vain were egotistical creatures. If you come up to me and say, Hey, I really like your work. I am far more likely to like you. And third. We like people who will work with us toward a mutual goal. If we I am more likely to like you so scam artist might try to wheel out some information about you in order to make it seem as if the artist also shares the similar interests and values that you have. And try and create this pathway to get you to like the scam artist so that in return, you will actually do whatever the scam artist wants you to do. The sixth principle is consensus, which essentially says that when we're in doubt, we tend to look at what other people are doing so that we can get some direction over what we should do now. I certainly identify with this. I think about just about any situation I've been in. In which I was joining a group of people working together on an activity. Maybe we're all doing the same thing over and over like folding T shirts. That's an easy one. We're all folding T shirts and I keep looking over to the left and right to see how other people are doing it so that I feel like I'm doing it the right way that I'm not messing up. Have this incredible social pressure on me to do it correctly, and rather than try and learn this in a more formal away way I'm or process or you know the way. I'm doing it by looking at how everyone else is doing this now, if everyone else is doing this quote unquote the correct way, that's fine. But people are doing things incorrectly. Then all I'm doing is adding to the number of people who are doing something incorrectly. But there again is a lot of social pressure at play here for you to do as the group does, and this is not just psychobabble these principles. Put into words behaviors that humans have developed as social creatures. Human survival has largely depended upon our working together. And so we've developed these behaviors that promote cooperation and they discourage inhibiting cooperation. Understanding those behaviors and then suddenly leveraging them can have a really big impact on interactions and that plays right into the hands of social engineers.
