Jason Hartman speaks about the trends that come from coasts, specifically California. Zillow shows 2 million renters will become homeowners, and U-Haul has metrics that lead us to believe that more people are leaving NYC. What does this mean for investors in stable, linear markets?

Jason Hartman speaks with Leslie Appleton-Young, vice-president and chief economist for the California Association of Realtors. Leslie brings several charts and graphs to the conversation to share some staggering movement in California's real estate. In January, 2020 was shaping up to be a knock out year, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are now looking at best for "a quick recovery." Leslie and Jason draw correlations between the 2008 recession and recovery to the recent, seemingly, self-imposed recession. 

Key Takeaways:

[2:40] Why do you keep talking about California?

[7:10] The water theory of investing explained.

[10:00] According to Zillow, 2 million people are leaving their rented homes in expensive markets and purchasing homes in more affordable areas thanks to the "work from home" movement since COVID-19. 

[12:45] Discussing money vs. currency

[14:30] Experimenting with U-Haul pricing.

[17:00] What's the COVID-19 impact on global airport revenue?

Leslie Appleton-Young

[26:30] Jason and Leslie discuss predictions based on the Q2 hit in 2020, ranging from a 25% - 42% decline. 

[28:00] The buy-side of real estate is doing well, likely because of record-low interest rates, more space needed for home offices, and more space desired in quarantine times. 

[34:30] In January, the 2020 expectation was a great year based on some standard metrics.

[35:20] We have not had a breakout market since the 2008 recession due to income and affordability restraints. 

[38:00] The virus and the government's response are two major contributing factors to set the tone for sellers and the real estate market's recovery.

Jason Hartman shares figures from Zillow about the 2 million people that are now shopping for a home. This is another of many indicators about the mass migration of the 2020s. Businesses have the option of hiring from outside their headquartered region allowing for employment from all parts of the world, not just those living in the high-density, cyclical markets.

Jason Hartman is joined by Dr. Steve Turley, NY Times bestselling author of many books including, The New Nationalism, How the Populous Right is Defeating Globalism and Awakening a New Political Order. Dr. Turley discusses the breaking up of the world, and reverting to a cultural appetite that differs from the one size fits all ideology of modernity. Dr. Turley states that we are living in a time of post-modernity, where we’ve accepted the differences of cultures.

Key Takeaways:

[3:25] “Where would I find a list of Jason Hartman’s linear markets?” - Listener Question

[7:30] Wait till the census comes in, and we can see how pronounced the move away from urban areas really was this year.

[10:00] Zillow says that 2 million people that were renting in big cities will be buying homes.

[16:00] How far is too far with censoring in Big Tech?

[17:00] Dr. Steve Turley

[19:30] Modern intellectual theory has hindered the teachings of conversation.

[22:10] What is cultural marxism?

[25:55] “Scientific rationalism was really the one size fits all way of understanding reality.” -Turley

[31:00] Modernity has collapsed into post-modernism.

[32:50] The world is breaking up, and it’s not because liberal democracy won, it’s because modernity lost.

[37:00] If the world is going post-modern, you really only have two choices.

[40:30] What’s the fundamental difference between economic marxism and cultural marxism?

Flashback Friday, Original Release Date: March 4, 2013

It is possible to illustrate complex financial concepts and Jason Hartman interviews author/artist, Carl Richards, who developed a way to do this and led to his book, The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money.  Carl creates simple sketches that help people understand financial concepts, which he refers to as Visualizing Finance. People are primarily visual learners and Carl found that as he made the concepts visual, it was easier to communicate them to others effectively.

He shares some of these visualizations, such as the market cycles, explaining the terms he uses and the psychology behind the buy/sell behaviors in the stock market. Using a Venn diagram, he is able to help people realize what they have control over and what they don’t, whether it’s investments or business, and enabling them to make better decisions and simplify their financial life.

Carl became an accidental artist with his simple sketches that make complex financial concepts easy to understand for thousands of people every week on The New York Times Bucks blog. Richards’ art had its first showing at the Kimball Art Center, in Park City, Utah. His commissioned work is on display in businesses and educational institutions across the country.

His sketches also serve as the foundation for his first book, The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money (Portfolio/Penguin). Carl has appeared regularly on American Public Media's Marketplace Money, writes a column for Morningstar Advisor, and keynotes financial planning conferences and visual learning events. You can find more of his writing and sketches at BehaviorGap.com. A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Carl is also the director of investor education at BAM Advisor Services and lives in Park City, Utah, with his family.

As a financial planner, Carl Richards grew frustrated watching people he cared about make the same mistakes over and over with their money. They were letting emotion get in the way of making smart financial decisions. He named this phenomenon—the distance between what we should do and what we actually do— “the behavior gap.” A quote from his book states, “It’s not that we’re dumb. We’re wired to avoid pain and pursue pleasure and security. It feels right to sell when everyone around us is scared and buy when everyone feels great. It may feel right—but it’s not rational.”

Jason Hartman interviews Dean Clancy, the Vice President of Public Policy of a grassroots movement called FreedomWorks, to discuss many hot topics and issues that our country is facing. Dean talks about the fiscal cliff and the ramifications of the policies pushed through on New Year’s Eve, and the money being thrown at special interests in typical bloated government fashion. 

Dean stresses the importance of voter participation and discusses some radical options to turn around the debt crisis and decentralize the system. He states there is more incentive in government to do the wrong thing than what is actually best for our country and its citizens. FreedomWorks’ aggressive, real-time campaigns activate a growing and permanent volunteer grassroots army to show up and demand policy change. They believe individual liberty and the freedom to compete increases consumer choices and provides individuals with the greatest control over what they own and earn. They lead the fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.

Dean Clancy is FreedomWorks’ Legislative Counsel and Vice President, Health Care Policy. He leads our efforts to reverse the government takeover of health care and adopt a patient-centered approach. Clancy has served as the top White House budget official on health care, Medicare, Social Security, and other major government spending programs; as executive director of the President’s Council on Bioethics; and as a senior policy advisor to the congressional leadership. 

Clancy boasts an impressive resume a deep expertise on a broad range of domestic and fiscal policy subjects. Jokingly referring to himself as a "recovering Washington insider," Clancy works closely with Members of Congress, grassroots activists, and the public to defend and strengthen the world's best health care system and reduce government interference in the doctor-patient relationship.

This episode of Flashback Friday was initially published: October 31, 2012

Private equity is a type of investing where you deploy capital in companies privately rather than in the public market. Here to talk about this subject with Jason Hartman is David Carey, author of King of Capital, and senior writer for “The Deal.” David explains the various forms, including injecting money into companies to help them grow faster, and the most common form, a leverage buyout (LBO).

In an LBO, private equity firms are not responsible for paying down the debt, unlike a homeowner who pays off a mortgage. Instead, the company that is being acquired takes on the debt and retires it over time using its own cash flow. David notes that most private equity firms outperform stocks and bonds by a wide margin, not just through the use of leverage, but also from improving the profitability of the companies they acquire. David goes on to share his thoughts on the attacks on private equity, Bing Capital and Mitt Romney.

Dispelling the political negative caricature of the private equity business, David shares how these firms have helped numerous companies prosper, allowing for quicker new job growth. Bing Capital was an exception, having piled on too much debt, and naturally, the Obama campaign took a potshot at the firm and private equity firms in general.

DAVID CAREY is senior writer for The Deal, a news service and magazine covering private-equity and mergers and acquisitions. Before joining The Deal, he was the editor of Corporate Finance magazine and wrote for Adweek, Fortune, Institutional Investor, and Financial World. Carey has appeared often on CNBC. He holds two masters degrees: one in French literature from Princeton and a second in journalism from Columbia. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington.

Carey authored the book, KING OF CAPITAL: The Remarkable Rise, Fall, and Rise Again of Steve Schwarzman and Blackstone (Crown Business; October 2010), which tells how Schwarzman and his co-founder Pete Peterson, starting with just one secretary in 1985, built a powerhouse that weathered the financial crisis successfully even as other institutions crumbled.

1529 FBF: Electronic Voting Machine Vulnerabilities with Bev Harris of HBO’s ‘Hacking Democracy’ Documentary

This episode of Flashback Friday was initially published: October 19, 2012

With the November Presidential election right around the corner, nothing could be more timely or more important than understanding the electronic voting system and the risk to our right for a fair and honest voting system. Jason Hartman interviews Black Box Voting founder, Bev Harris, who was featured in the HBO documentary, “Hacking Democracy,” and has been researching and writing on the subject of electronic voting since 2002 after she discovered that U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel had ownership in and had been CEO of the company that built the machines which counted his own votes.

Bev shares the seriousness of the situation, explaining that the monopoly on the manufacturing of the machines gives the corporate owners (shareholders) complete control over voting outcomes, and that the structural problems with electronic voting prevent the public from being able to authenticate.

Vanity Fair magazine credits Bev Harris with founding the movement to reform electronic voting. Time Magazine calls her book, Black Box Voting, "the bible" of electronic voting. The Boston Globe has referred to her as "the godmother" of the election reform movement. Her articles were among the first to reveal that modern-day voting systems are run by private for-profit corporations, relying on a few cronies for oversight, using a certification system so fundamentally flawed that it allows machines to miscount and lose votes, with hidden back doors that enable "end runs" around the voting system.

Bev’s investigations have led some to call her the "Erin Brockovich of elections." (Salon.com) In 2003, just weeks after a stunning electoral upset in Georgia that tipped control of the U.S. Senate, she discovered 40,000 secret voting machine files -- including a set of files called "rob-georgia," containing instructions to replace Georgia's computerized voting files before the election. The files she found contained databases with votes in them and the voting machine programs themselves. She downloaded the files on Jan. 23, 2003 and set them free on the Internet a few months later, where they were studied by scientists and security experts.

Bev has since uncovered more about the secret voting systems and made them public, has been served with four cease and desist orders from private manufacturers for releasing information to the public, and was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service Cybercrime Task Force, being hit with a gag order for refusing to turn over information, an action that was dropped after it was exposed by a Seattle reporter. With a voting system that has become divorced from the citizens it serves, Bev founded Black Box Voting, a nonpartisan, non-profit 501c(3) organization to help citizens fight back (http://www.blackboxvoting.org/).

This episode of Flashback Friday was initially published: 9/17/2012

Jason Hartman welcomes guest co-host/listener, Brandon, from Portland, Oregon, as they discuss several things. First, a discussion of some of Jason's recent book consumption, including; Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler and Free: The Future of a Radical Price by Chris Anderson.

Next, Jason and Brandon analyze Peter Schiff's most recent video criticizing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and QE3 (Quantitative Easing). Peter has some things right and others wrong. As Jason has pointed out in so many prior episodes, gold and silver are mediocre asset classes and shouldn't be considered 'investments' but somewhat defensive ways to save money, store wealth and keep pace with inflation. 

An investment is an OFFENSIVE tool; gold and silver are only defensive tools. The real way to profit is to exploit the next housing bubble.

Some of the questions covered in this episode are:

 Abundance - Peter H. Diamandis & Steven Kotler

1. In what ways is the world getting better? It sure seems like there is a lot of negativity out there.

2. How will technology provide "top-tier" education to everyone on the planet, as Diamandis & Kotler mention in the book?

Free - Chris Anderson

1. Chris Anderson mentions that some things can be too cheap to meter. What sort of goods is he referencing, and what is the cause of this innovation?

2. How will the big companies like Microsoft compete with the free model?

3. Who wins with "free" - businesses or consumers?

4. Will we ever get to the point where almost everything in our lives is free?

Peter Schiff on QE3

1. Is the goal of QE3 to drive up asset prices? It seems to me that asset price increase in housing will only cause the illusion of wealth.

2. Why would QE3 work this time if it didn't work before?

Jason Hartman discusses the economic recovery after the Spanish Flu. How was the economy leading up to the Spanish Flu, and how did the value of a paper money change globally? How does this relate to our current pandemic recovery, and what have we done differently?

The wealthiest US generation is starting to die off. Jason talks about the largest wealth transfer in history, a 30 trillion dollar transfer being passed down over the next couple of decades. The baby boomers are expected to pass this wealth to millennials with what expectations for how they will use it?

This episode of Flashback Friday was originally published: Original Publish Date  4/16/12

Jason Hartman interviews returning guest and founder and CEO, Harry Dent, Jr., of HS Dent, an economic think tank and research company, about the next coming crash. Mr. Dent accurately predicted the boom of the 1990s, which was contrary to what many other forecasters predicted. He explains why America is on a path to the next Great Depression through its mounting debt to boost the economy.

He talks about how the U.S. creates bubble after bubble in all areas, such as the housing bubble, the gold and silver bubble, the commodity bubble, etc. Trillions of dollars in stimulus money has poured forth from the government, along with the lowering of interest rates, thereby inciting inflation that will continue to grow with the current system of bailouts and lack of lending. He also discusses the peaks and deflation of spending with the switch between the Baby Boomer and current generations, and how this will affect America's economic future.

Mr. Dent also paints the dark picture of China’s future, where they are overbuilding just to keep their workers employed, which will become a worldwide crisis when their building bubble bursts. Jason and Mr. Dent talk about the condition of other countries and how everything interplays to lead to the next crash that Mr. Dent forecasts. He suggests some strategies for investors and what people might expect.

Using exciting new research developed from years of hands-on business experience, Harry S. Dent, Jr. offers a refreshingly positive and understandable view of the economic future. As a bestselling author on economics, Mr. Dent is the developer of The Dent Method - an economic forecasting approach based on changes in demographic trends.

In all of his past books since 1989, Dent saw an end to the Baby Boom spending cycle around the end of this decade. In his book, The Great Depression Ahead, (Free Press, 2009), Harry Dent outlined how this next great downturn is likely to unfold in three stages, with an interim boom stage between 2012 and 2017 before the long-term slowdown finally turns into the next global boom in the early 2020s. He continued to educate audiences about his predictions for the next and possibly last great bull market, from late 2005 into early to mid 2010.

Since 1992 he has authored two consecutive best sellers, The Roaring 2000s and The Roaring 2000s Investor (Simon and Schuster). In his latest book, The Next Great Bubble Boom, he offers a comprehensive forecast for the next two decades and explains how fundamental trends suggest strong growth ahead, followed by a longer-term economic contraction. Mr. Dent also publishes the HS Dent Forecast newsletter, which offers current analysis of economic and financial market trends.

This episode of Flashback Friday was originally published: April 4, 2012

Join Jason Hartman and consulting economist, John Williams, for a discussion about how government statistics don’t paint the whole picture of economic conditions. Many years ago, John realized that GNP (now GDP) numbers were faulty, causing his clients’ sales forecasting models to no longer work.

This eventually led John into lengthy research of the history and nature of the government’s economic reporting. John explains how the numbers reported by the government hide important information; for example, true unemployment rates, which fail to include the unemployed no longer receiving unemployment benefits and those who are underemployed. Inflation statistics are misrepresented, which affects GDP.

Following changes in CPI methodology, the Consumer Price Index understates inflation significantly. John points out that cost of living increases were based on inflation data, but with the numbers so skewed, the increases are no longer representative of the actual costs. He provides a history of how these changes came about and how it has affected commerce, social security and payroll. John feels roughly seven percentage points should be added to real inflation rates in our current economy.

Walter J. "John" Williams was born in 1949. He received an A.B. in Economics, cum laude, from Dartmouth College in 1971, and was awarded a M.B.A. from Dartmouth's Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in 1972, where he was named an Edward Tuck Scholar. During his career as a consulting economist, John has worked with individuals as well as Fortune 500 companies. He has been doing private consulting for nearly 30 years and is a specialist in government economic reporting.

John’s research into the government’s statistics took place over a number of years, during which he conducted surveys among business economists as to the quality of government statistics, and his results led to front page stories in the New York Times and Investors Business Daily, considerable coverage in the broadcast media and a joint meeting with representatives of all the government’s statistical agencies.

Despite minor changes to the system, government reporting has deteriorated sharply in the last decade or so. At the request of his old friend, the late Doug Gillespie, John wrote a series of articles on the quality of government statistics. The response to those writings (the Primer Series) was so strong that he started Shadow Government Statistics in 2004. He publishes a newsletter as part of his private economic consulting services.

Yes, it's true - we are looking at a modified square root recovery. Jason Hartman shares a brief analysis of our economic recovery, what to expect, and how to position yourself for financial comfort.

[234:45] "Right now, humanity is going through a transformation, and no one promised that it will always be pleasant." -Millman

This Episode of Flashback Friday was originally published on March 8, 2012

Whether you’re trying to get a raise at your job, solve a relationship problem, or deal with a stubborn child, negotiating is a daily part of our lives, and every human interaction is affected by emotion and logic or rationalization. Jason Hartman interviews Stuart Diamond, the author of "Getting More: How to Negotiate to Achieve Your Goals in the Real World" on improving negotiating skills and interactions with others in order to “get more.” Stuart stresses the importance of making the human connection and finding the pictures in people’s heads, knowing them better in order to better meet their needs, which gives a person a more competitive edge and adds tremendous wealth to any deal.

Emotions play a huge part in all interactions. “Emotions destroy negotiations because they distract people from their goals,” says Stuart. When people get emotional, they stop listening, and it becomes a priority to find out a person’s emotional temperature before proceeding on any deal. Stuart talks about key points in how people should treat one another, stating how people today have a lack of trust in one another and have a tendency to demonize one another rather than using simple solutions to solve conflicts. “Fighting is the last choice; not the first choice,” explains Stuart.

Stuart Diamond has taught and advised on negotiation and cultural diversity to corporate and government leaders in more than 40 countries, including in Eastern Europe, former Soviet Republics, China, Latin America, the Middle East, Canada, South Africa and the United States. He holds an M.B.A. with honors from Wharton Business School, ranked #1 globally by The Financial Times where he is currently a professor from practice. For more than 90% of the semesters over the past 15 years his negotiation course has been the most popular in the school based on the course auction, and he has won multiple teaching awards. He has taught negotiation at Harvard Law School, from which he holds a law degree and is a former Associate Director of the Harvard Negotiation Project. He has directed a negotiation consulting firm in Cambridge, MA.

Mr. Diamond is president of Global Strategy Group, which advises companies and governments on negotiating foreign investment and devising strategies, structures and marketing to compete effectively on an international scale: essentially the skills of planning and persuasion. He advises senior corporate and government officials on building internal coalitions and harmony to be more effective and competitive in an environment of constant change.

He has analyzed competitive and persuasive strategies for organizations as different as Merck, Citibank, General Electric, BASF, Prudential, the Government of Colombia, a $16 billion petrochemical company in China and scientists in Ukraine. He advises U.S. and foreign companies on developing more effective communications and media relations, strategic focus, problem-solving, creative options, and persuading vendors and customers. He is an expert in cross-cultural negotiation and has advised on the subject to executives of some of the world's leading companies. He has consulted extensively for the United Nations. In a prior career Mr. Diamond, who also holds a B.A. in English from Rutgers University, was a journalist. He wrote extensively, including at Newsday and The New York Times, where he won the Pulitzer Prize as a part of a team investigating the crash of the space shuttle Challenger in 1986.

He covered many major crises including the Bhopal chemical leak in India, the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in Pennsylvania and the Chernobyl nuclear accident in the former Soviet Union. He has written two books, two documentary films and more than 2,000 published articles, dozens on page one of The New York Times. He has appeared on Today and Good Morning America and lectured widely about the problems and prospects of emerging markets, and international business challenges in an environment of change. His new book on negotiation,Getting More, was published by Random House in December 2010, and became a New York Times Bestseller in January 2011.

Mr. Diamond was an executive of a Wall Street energy futures brokerage firm, for which he negotiated a multimillion dollar sale. He has worked at the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell and the investment bank of Morgan Stanley. He founded or directed entrepreneurial ventures in medical services and wireless technologies. He has advised on environmental regulations, privatization and intellectual property protection in emerging markets from Chile to Kuwait. He advised the President's office in Bolivia, Colombia and Nicaragua.

He persuaded 3,000 people in the jungles of Bolivia to stop growing illicit coca and to start growing bananas exported to Argentina. He advises a variety of high technology companies and in 2000 played a lead role in putting together a $300 million merger of two high-tech companies that had been on the verge of litigation. He became the first chairman of the merged companies, Summus, Inc., listed on OTC. In 2004 he represented the borrower in completing the largest foreign-sourced commercial financing in the history of Ukraine, a $107.5 million Eurobond issue to finance commercial space ventures. In June, 2005, he became Chairman and CEO of Four Star Aviation of St. Thomas, in which he is a 50% owner.

In 2006 he represented The N.Y Commodities Exchange in the successful negotiation of electronic trading rights with the N.Y. Mercantile Exchange. In 2008, he provided the process that enabled the Writer's Guild to settle their strike with the studios in Hollywood. Diamond has taught negotiation at the business schools of Columbia, NYU, USC, UCal/Berkeley, and at Oxford and Penn Law School, where he is an Adjunct Professor.

Participants have included managers and executives from 51 of the Global 100 companies and 124 of the Global 500, including IBM, Microsoft, JP Morgan, Exxon, Honda, Hewlett Packard, Yahoo, G.E., Lucent, Japan Airlines, SAP, Prudential, and leaders from a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, law, high technology, manufacturing, energy, chemicals, politics, information, biotechnology, sales, mergers & acquisitions. He has taught extensively in executive programs at Wharton and elsewhere to very high ratings.

This episode of FlashBack Friday was Originally Released: December 13, 2011

Join Jason Hartman and Doug Casey of Casey Research for a candid discussion about the condition of America and what is to come. Doug feels we needed a depression, but it doesn’t have to be as long and dismal as it’s going to be for most people. The U.S. government has gone about everything completely opposite of the right way; it’s totally bankrupt. They’re selling money/debt to the Federal Reserve because no other country in the world wants to buy our devalued American dollar. Doug feels for the average American because he/she is not going to profit from it and is going to be turned into a common serf. Pension funds are in trouble and are nothing more than the government’s scheme to finance its debt.

We may see more wars in the future as politicians look for someone to blame, as happened in the Great Depression of the 1930s. The rich will be those that own real estate around the world. Doug feels it’s too early to buy U.S. real estate unless it’s bought with low-interest, fixed-rate mortgages because the debt will be inflated away. Sharing a position with Jason, Doug is not a fan of the stock market and feels that commodities are going to eventually bottom out with all of the new nanotechnology.

While he’s still bullish on commodities because he’s bearish on the dollar, Doug recommends buying real estate in other parts of the world, using Rothschild’s philosophy of buying when blood is running in the streets. Our biggest enemy is our government, so people must diversify politically, geographically, internationally, and most Americans don’t know anything about it. Looking at stocks, while Doug wants nothing to do with them for the most part, he sees mining stocks moving. They’re relatively cheap right now and while they’re a speculative venture, with thorough research, one can find a few good mining companies that are seeing strong returns.

Inflation is going to get a lot higher because the government has no choice but to print money to pay its debts. It’s the 11th hour and now is the time to act, to position yourself to ride out the storm. Doug’s guess is that when all of this bottoms, mortgage money will not exist and people the world over will have to purchase property with cash. They will be paying real value versus the inflated values of mortgage companies. Doug expresses his concern that our current economic situation is very serious. As he looks around, he doesn’t see any real bargains.

We’re still in the eye of the hurricane, and he forecasts that as we go back into the storm, it’s going to be a lot uglier than it was in 2008. He calls this the Greater Depression. This is a time when you don’t want to be rooted to a spot like a plant. In turbulent times, plants usually get eaten up. Doug is a widely respected preeminent authority on “rational speculation,” especially in the high-potential natural resource sector.

He is a high respected author, publisher and professional investor, and graduated from Georgetown University in 1968. Since that time, Doug has literally written the book on profiting from times of economic turmoil. He is the author of Crisis Investing, which spent multiple weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in the No. 1 position, and became the best-selling financial book of 1980.

Doug also authored Strategic Investing, breaking the record by receiving the largest advance ever paid for a financial book at that time. Doug’s next book, The International Man, was the most sold book in the history of Rhodesia. Doug Casey has been a featured guest on such TV shows and radio shows as David Letterman, Merv Griffin, Charlie Rose, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin, Maury Povich, NBC News and CNN. He has also been the topic of numerous features in periodicals, such as Time, Forbes, People, and the Washington Post.

Doug divides his time between homes in Aspen, Colorado, Auckland, New Zealand, and Salta Argentina. He has written newsletters and alert services for sophisticated investors for over 28 years. He has lived in 10 countries and visited over 175. In addition to having served as a trustee on the Board of Governors of Washington College and Northwoods University, Doug has been a director and advisor to nine different financial corporations. Doug is currently the founder of Casey Research, a research company that watches every sector, looking for opportunities in the world.

Casey Research is a believer in free markets and understands the fundamental reality that the more a government interferes in a market, the more likely there will be consequences…negative for those unaware, but positive for those who are aware. More details about Casey Research can be found at their website:http://www.caseyresearch.com/cwc.

Jason Hartman hosts today’s show on a booming economy and real estate market. How can one make sense of an economy with so much intervention? New home listings are on the rise but the luxury home market does not have as much growth in comparison. Whether it’s new homes or luxury homes, people are looking away from high-density areas for the purchase of their next home.

Be the arbitrager, not just a landlord. Real estate investing is a multi-dimensional asset with many moving parts and opportunities to capitalize on your money. From the basic monthly profit to inflation-induced debt destruction, master your understanding of real estate investing. Get ready for Meet the Masters, Virtual.

[11:20] Stock and bonds are fiat money. It is paper with no intrinsic value.

[14:00] Listen for the recapitulation of the IIDD, inflation-induced debt destruction.

[17:00] Is a real estate investor just someone who rents houses?

[19:45] How can you financialize your life more?

[21:30] The people closest to the money, get the richest.

[24:00] Trickle-down economics vs trickle-up economics. 

[26:00] As Richard Cantillon discussed, “the more local you are to the money, the more you will be enriched by it.”

[27:10] I’m an arbitrager, not just a landlord. 

[30:00] If you don’t have a plan for your life, you’re going to become someone else’s plan.

Not a cryptocurrency, but a COVID-Currency. Jason Hartman shares news of a small town in Washington that has created their own local currency, something that hasn’t been used since the Great Depression.

Lastly, Jason talks about the wildly unsurprising news that the bidding wars for homes have left the big cities and moved largely to the burbs.

Today’s Flashback Friday episode was originally released: March 4, 2008

On this show we'll hear from Paul Harvey, Jim Rogers, Ron Paul, and truth-challenged Ben Bernanke about commodities investing and the virtues of trading fake dollars for real assets.

Key Takeaways:

[1:30] American real estate is one of the best deals going, especially given this perfect storm that has developed over the past two years or so with the subprime mortgage meltdown, the rising commodity prices, and the ridiculous increase in inflation here in the U.S. and also globally.

[5:45] Pessimism about the American Dollar.

[8:30] “Let them debase the American dollar. Overall, it is not great news, but as we play the game properly, we are outsmarting the Federal Reserve and the way the government is spending so ridiculously, irresponsibly because our investments increase in value with these inflationary pressures.”

[18:30] The dollar is at all-time lows now, but this is 2007, so that means in at least 100 years, the dollar’s now making new lows, which is a shame because we were the world’s reserve currency, we were the richest, most powerful country in the world, and it’s not going to be good. It’s driving commodity prices up; it’s driving up interest rates, as you know. Long-term interest rates have not come down despite all this, and what happened is as commodities go higher, inflation goes higher, imported goods go higher, inflation will get worse and ultimately, long-term interest rates will go higher, too.  

[24:00] It’s great for everybody to own their own home. I’m all for it, too, but I’m also in favor

[25:30] How in the world can we expect to solve the problems of inflation, that is, the increase in the supply of money, with more inflation?

[28:00] Inflation is everywhere and the devaluation of the dollar is hurting the elderly the most because they tend to be the savers. They did the right thing all their life. They were told save money, save for retirement, yet they have been burned through the policies of the Federal Reserve.

[33:00] Hedonics is where they say that the product you’re buying, that the consumer is buying, produces an equal or greater amount of pleasure if you will than the older products. So the newer product is better because of progress and technology, as it should be. And that newer products should be adjusted for inflation through the hedonics index.

[42:00] don’t wait to buy real estate. Buy real estate and then wait. And you know what? But you’ve gotta buy a special kind of real estate, financed a special way, in the right markets, at the right time, based on our methodology.
