DeSantis Calls Central Bank Digital Currencies Pose ‘Massive Threat’ To Liberty

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida told Tucker Carlson Friday that certain digital currencies make a “social credit system” possible and posed a “massive threat” to liberty.
The White House promoted a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) in September 2022, while criticizing private digital currencies like Bitcoin. Critics of CBDCs say it opens the door to more government control over citizens.
DeSantis signed legislation May 2 that prohibited state agencies and local governments from considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors when issuing bonds, barred banks from considering “social credit” when making loan decisions and prohibited discrimination on the basis of political, social or religious ideology.
