The ‘already and not yet’, a phrase we can use to describe a type of reality that’s present, but not yet fully here.

The future of finance is already here, it’s just not fully apparent. Not many of us would get excited on the topic of Central Bank digital currencies and tax, but  I’d suggest anything that can signal a change to how our dollar works is a topic we should dive into.

As our investments are denominated in a currency that can be manipulated, it doesn’t matter how many dollars you get as a return, if all the value those dollars hold are not in your control.

Campbell Pentney is my guest and he’s a member of Bell Gully’s tax team – he works across a broad range of tax related issues and why I’ve reached out to him, is that I’m trying to round out my understanding a bit further with all things taxation, and the evolving connection it has to the future of money as we know it.
