Jason Hartman is joined by contributing author for, Alasdair MacLeod for a rousing discussion of the decline of the European economy, the mistakes of the European Central Bank and EU, and how “governments are eating their own children.”

Alasdair makes a rather accurate comparison between the fall of Rome and the current economic disaster around the world, calling it the Nero influence. Governments continue to spend money and introduce new taxes that are detrimental to the people they serve. The ECB is now lowering collateral standards as they run out of quality collateral, such as taking on mortgage-backed securities, in exchange for helping banks and governments.

Alasdair said the real problem among Greece, Spain, Italy and other countries in crisis is that they are broke, yet they continue to meet to discuss increasing spending to build infrastructure and creating token taxes. Governments the world round are in a debt trap, including the U.S. Alasdair feels there is only one way to defer the imminent fall and that is for the Central Banks to come together and put into play quantitative easing.

Governments would then need to seriously cut their excessive, wasteful spending.

Jason Hartman is joined by author, Scott Patterson to discuss high frequency trading, of which roughly 70 percent is driven by computers. Scott says the firms using artificial intelligence for high-speed trading make it nearly impossible for the little guy to compete in the markets.

According to his book, Dark Pools, these robot systems trade in milliseconds. High frequency firms flood the market with buy and sell orders, effectively clogging up the system and posing a threat to other firms.

While this electronic exchange made the system more effective, one has to wonder if this trading style hasn’t become detrimental to the markets overall when trading successfully is defined by milliseconds. Scott coined the term “A.I. Bandits” to describe electronic high frequency trading. Scott also discusses the history of quant strategies based on his book, The Quants, a mathematical scientific approach to outsmarting Wall Street, which led to the recent financial crash. He calls the quant system “a classic tale of hubris.”

Scott Patterson is author of The Quants and his new release, Dark Pools, and is currently a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where he covers financial regulation from Washington, D.C. He has also written for the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Mother Earth News. He has a Masters of Arts degree from James Madison University. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

Jason Hartman answers client questions, discusses the organization of your real estate portfolio and is interviewed by Future Money Trends. During the interview, Jason discusses the multi-dimensional nature of income property and the one-dimensional or maybe two-dimensional nature of other investments as well as the demand equation.

They can outsource all the manufacturing jobs to China, they can outsource all the call centers and administrative jobs to India or the Philippines, they can even "outsource" retail shopping to the internet; however, so long as the U.S. population is increasing there will be increased demand for housing. This is especially true with all the home-based business and corporate people working at home.

Even Fortune 1000 companies are telling some of their employees to work at home. Remember that people only have three choices 1) buy, 2) rent or 3) be homeless.  Be sure to join Jason and his team in Atlanta, Georgia.
