Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Jason talks with one of his twenty-something clients who's getting off to a good start as a real estate investor.  Starting at the ripe old age of 26, Drew acquired three good rental properties that produce income of around $3,000 per month.  In this multi-faceted case study interview Jason and Drew talk about the presidential debates, with a special focus on Ron Paul, buying a home vs. renting a home while purchasing income property.

The rent versus buy analysis takes on new meaning in today's economy as we consider the "opportunity cost" of a huge downpayment and large monthly payment in overpriced areas of California or any market with undesirable LTI Ratios or "Land-to-Improvement Ratio" (an acronym and concept created by Jason as part of The Hartman Risk Evaluator).  As Rich Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, says; "Your house is not an asset, it's a liability. Assets produce income, your house costs money."  You'll also hear some thoughts on home-based businesses.

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.
