Investors are convinced they cannot trust Wall Street to deliver the American Dream of financial security and independence. The same investors know Packaged Commodities™, in the form of income properties, are the best method to achieve this American Dream.

This attempted fix has not only stopped the irresponsible individual from placing themselves in a loan they cannot afford, but it unfortunately bottle-necked the ability for responsible real  estate investors to purchase lucrative income properties and take advantage of historically low pricing and interest rates.

To inform investors on the latest lending situations, Jason Hartman welcomes registered financial consultant and mortgage professional, Randy, to this episode of The Creating Wealth Show. With over 22 years of experience in the mortgage industry, Randy has personally assisted thousands of individuals obtain mortgage loans for their primary or income property needs.

Trump supporters like the fact that he is politically incorrect.

Average Americans are speaking up and they want a hard ass in the White House. They are tired of the trouble making, intolerant progressive democrats who know nothing of economics. They may be in search of a man similar to Ronald Reagan, like Donald Trump. Both former president and possibly future president speak in generalities because it is their job to lead, not to be the experts. Trump will use the American military when it is needed to serve the best interests of the American public. Jason’s guest, Jeffrey Lord says Obama’s presidential leadership is considered weak among international leaders and it is putting America in jeopardy.

Unlike stocks, bonds, mutual funds or commodities such as precious metals like gold and silver – real estate is a multi-dimensional asset class. The multi-dimensional nature of income property makes it extremely profitable in changing ways based on varying market conditions. This is a wonderful thing because investors can profit even seemingly “bad” markets. For example, when financing becomes expensive (low housing affordability rates) or difficult to qualify for (low capital liquidity) it can create excellent opportunities to increase rents. When mortgage rates are low and qualifying is easy it can spur terrific appreciation. You can win either way so long as you adapt your strategy based on economic realities.

Additionally, a discussion about Macro vs. Micro Markets™ so don’t just run out and buy based on a city – be sure to screen and drill down into the various Micro Markets™ within each city. Since you can’t buy all of them… you may as well buy the best ones!

Last but not least Jason recommends the book “Revolutionary Wealth” by Alvin and Heidi Toffler.

In this is episode, Jason interviews analyst, author, screenwriter and former Waffle House employee, James Adams. James’ book, Waffle Street: The Confessions & Rehabilitation of a Financier gives us an inside look of what it was like to be working on Wall Street during the housing market crash. His story of leaving the modern version of organized crime and getting a job at the most recognized greasy spoon in the southeastern US has been made into a movie starring Danny Glover. He describes the central banking system with regards to loans and debt, reminds us of the problems associated with creating money out of thin air and warns Japan may be the first big domino to fall when the next crisis occurs.

 

James Adams Guest Interview:

[1:40] From Wall Street to Waffle House was the original title of Waffle Street and based on James Adams life.

[5:17] The movie exaggerates certain situations but the crisis was bigger than anyone ever imagined.

[6:40] A combination of reckless underwriting and the improbability of a US housing market decline led financial institutions to reassure clients until the crash took place.

[9:38] Rent to home price ratios were skewed and people underestimated the domino effects of leverage.

[12:20] The current issue that scares James Adams now is the treasury balance sheets of G8 countries.

[14:38] Central banks are creating electronic liabilities.

[16:25] The banks have been disintermediated. Banks are still part of the loan origination process but they are no longer responsible for the debt.

[22:14] Making money out of thin air works..until it doesn’t.

[22:53] Japan has the worst balance sheets, the worst demographics and the government is running in a massive deficit.

[23:58] Should we all be buying options on Japanese debt?

[26:20] The Waffle Street film is trending well on Netflix and is experiencing good distribution.

[27:25] James Adam’s is now a Senior Research Analyst and has another movie in the works.

Investment Counselor, Sara is back on the show. She joins Jason to discuss her three new properties in Memphis, how a client beat her to the punch on other properties she was interested in and just how competitive the market is right now. And in the client case study, Dr. David D’Ambrosio shares his experiences with the 1031 Exchange on properties in the Orlando and Indianapolis markets. He shares his opinions on why more high-tax bracket professionals are not investing in real estate and he asks Jason about what his next steps should be?

 

The beautiful thing about real estate is you can acquire an asset, get your money back out and still own and control the asset. Plus, you pay no taxes on the money you extract.

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:12] Sara just closed on three properties in Memphis and she wears PJ’s to bed.

[19:52] Dr. David recently did a 1031 Exchange and then purchased four properties in Orlando.

[23:25] The 1031 Exchange allows for only 45 days for identifying properties but up to six months to close.

[26:08] It’s frustrating more people, doctors in particular, aren’t investing in real estate. It’s an absolute no-brainer.  

[32:16] Local community banks will provide financing to investors after they reach their traditional property limit.

[38:24] Is it feasible to do a cash out refinance if you can get a sizable amount of cash?

Many demographic changes are taking place, with the Baby Boomers, a large generation, retiring, and Generation Y, a larger generation than the Baby Boomers, consuming at record levels.  Join Jason Hartman and demographer, Ken Gronbach, as they discuss this upcoming “storm.”

Ken describes Generation Y as an exciting generation, where the United States is the only country with this large of a group at the present time, and that it is very important that businesses recognize and anticipate their markets as Generation Y grows up. Generation X is more of a mystery generation because of its smaller size, which makes it less of a valuable market.  Ken believes that the United States’ best days are ahead as people bail out of the European Union. He also believes that China’s economic future is bleak due to artificial tampering with the population, with demographic numbers showing China in trouble economically within ten years, struggling to feed themselves within 15 years.

Ken shows how the housing market is being held hostage by big bank foreclosures and why this log jam will soon correct and precipitate a restoration of the United States economy. Ken also talks about how manufacturing will return to the United States with a vengeance because the United States is the only industrialized nation with a huge young highly skilled workforce.

Kenneth W. Gronbach is a gifted keynote speaker and a nationally recognized expert and futurist in the field of Demography and Generational Marketing. Ken entertains his audiences with his own special brand of wit, humor and clear communication. He makes the science of shifting demography come alive with real life examples that make it relevant to today’s culture, business climate and economy.  In his book “Age Curve, How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm”, published by The American Management Association, Ken takes you through a fascinating common sense understanding of shifting demography and the related opportunities and challenges. The demographic landscape in the United States is made up a series of waves that are about twenty years in duration.

It would follow that business will rise and fall according to the critical mass of customers heading toward it. Ken’s latest book “Decades of Difference, Making it Work” (HRD Press), about the United States workforce, was released in October 2010. Ken also writes for the CNBC Guest Blog.

Ken’s perspective is macro, a view from 30,000 feet, and very big picture. Demographers are able to forecast markets, societal phenomena, and economics with uncanny accuracy because they count people, not money or things. For example crime has been down in the United States for the last twenty years because the number of high risk crime committers (men 15 to 30 years old) has been low and fully employed.

This is because the fertility in the United States dipped sharply between 1965 and 1984 creating a deficit in our population of about nine million people. This shortage of young people in the labor force also drove labor costs up and manufacturing off shore. Ken says the Age Curve will change the way businesses market to consumers and that a sea of entrepreneurial business starts will rule as the economy turns around.

Jason’s guest, Brian is a client and a longtime Creating Wealth Podcast listener. Brian describes his early days of real estate investing when Sara initially walked him through the buying process. The properties he purchased in Atlanta and Memphis have now matured and Brian is faced with making a decision. Should he refi-til-ya-die or to do a 1031 exchange and get 2 for 1 on his highly appreciated properties. Jason shares his insights on best business practices, how to use an IRA as a tax savings vehicle and recommends some “must read” books on real estate investing.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:31] The Wells Fargo contract claw back.

There’s a nostalgic feeling to today’s Creating Wealth Show as Jason Hartman provides a live recording from the 2014 Meet the Masters event in Orange County, California. This gives listeners a taste of what they can expect from the January 2015 event in Irvine, California, and also provides a good opportunity to see how far the financial and real estate worlds have come over the past months. Key topics covered include the Case-Shiller index, reassessing Rent-to-Value ratios and the development of bitcoin.

 

Key Takeaways

04.30 – Jason Hartman’s investment strategy doesn’t focus on appreciation – if it happens, it’s a bonus.

07.45 – Bitcoin and its competing alternative cyber currencies really came about because people are starting to doubt the fiat money Central Banking model that we’ve become accustomed to.

10.50 – Despite being the most commonly used index, Jason Hartman would only recommend 6 of the 20 markets proposed by the Case-Shiller index.

14.08 – As humans, we find it inherently difficult to know when to cut losses and just walk away.

15.50 – Niall Ferguson claims that the most powerful part of the financial system is the bond market, and we would all do well to remember that.

20.09 – Real estate is not a very liquid market and so even when prices drop, they don’t drop as quickly as most other asset classes.

26.18 – Rent-to-value ratios change totally if you think about the actual utility cost per month – how much is your renter paying to use your property, and how does that compare with what you think the value is?

31.23 – The forms and uses of money have changed many times throughout history, and now we’re dealing with the technological side of currency, which has led us to bitcoin.

39.50 – Jason Hartman goes through step-by-step considering the relative merits and failings of the dollar, bitcoin, gold and income property.

Jason Hartman takes a unique middle ground on the Occupy Wall Street protests since Wall Street doesn’t represent capitalism as the right-wing media would have us believe while the left-wing media who supports big government and big unions doesn’t represent capitalism either. Both sides are promoting a fairy tale.

A recent Facebook post sums it up fairly well: This whole issue really isn’t that simple. I assume that most of the protesters are clueless folks who need haircuts; however, so is the conservative media (that I mostly agree with) in saying that Wall Street represents “capitalism” – nothing could be further from the truth, Wall Street, banks and mega-corporations are mostly ANTI-CAPITALISM in that they are playing a rigged game with lobbyists, government cronyism and insider dealings at every level. They use lawyers, accountants and PR firms to commit their crimes. There is very little capitalism on Wall Street.

If you’re looking for capitalism, look at Main Street, where small business operates under far too much government interference. Jason discusses the powerful “Qualified Written Request” (QWR) letter and how it can be a tool for loan modification, short sale, deed-in-leiu of foreclosure and foreclosure litigation.

You’ll also hear a short article from Jason’s newsletter, The Financial Freedom Report, on that all to upsetting topic of “Too Big to Fail.”

Jason Hartman talks with investment counselor, Sara, about investor psychology, overcoming obstacles and getting out of our own way.  The smoke-and-mirrors propaganda perpetuated by mainstream media (lamestream media as Sarah Palin says) in reporting the new high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).  

They almost always fail to distinguish between nominal dollars and real dollars.  Jason illustrates how investors have actually lost money in inflation adjusted dollars and how the Dow has to increase a lot more before investors break even based on the two peaks.  This lie is even worse when one considers how inflation is underreported in the consumer price index (CPI and CPI-U) due to weighting, substitution and hedonics (the hedonic index).  Another misrepresentation is the ‘core rate’ or ‘core inflation’ which strips out food and energy because they’re too volatile.  Jason shares some interesting data from ZeroHedge.com.

One of the core concepts that we communicate to our investors is to “Refi Till Ya Die” with your rental property portfolio. While this description may sound a bit snarky, it is a very powerful strategy for multiplying your wealth over the long-term.

The most unique part of this strategy is that it stands in stark contrast to the popular strategy of ‘flipping’ properties by buying and quickly re-selling them for quick profits. The strategy that we recommend is the exact opposite of this. At Platinum Properties, we advocate buying and holding prudent rental properties over a long period of time. This enables investors to build real wealth, instead of constantly churning properties. (And creating taxable gains)

There is another very powerful force behind our strategy of buy and hold investing. That power comes when the rents and value of your property increase over time. Typically, an investment property will start with low cash flow, and will grow in profitability as tenant rents are increased. This increase in revenues carries with it a tremendous tool for growing your wealth.

The way that you employ this tool is to refinance your property for more than your original purchase price, based on the increased cash flow. This will allow you to re-invest the amount of your loan that exceeds the original purchase price. And here comes the kicker . . . these net proceeds are not taxed!!!

The reason that you will not owe taxes on the re-financing of your properties is because loans are not taxed. Since you are taking out a loan instead of selling the property, no taxable transaction is triggered. (Granted, capital gains can be deferred via 1031 exchange, but you will still lose 5% to 6% of the property value off the top from realtor fees. Thus, investors can “Refi Till Ya Die” and legally avoid paying taxes on the increased loan amount of their properties. (In addition to this, the increased interest payments from your new loan will reduce the tax burden of your regular cash flow)

These strategies can super-charge wealth creation by allowing investors to capture their equity growth for re-investment. These perpetual re-investments accelerate the natural compounding of your investment portfolio. It also carries the benefit of consistently increasing your use of fixed-rate debt as a shield against inflation. Prudent investors realize the incredible power of this strategy, and should seek to capitalize on it to build their wealth during these increasingly difficult times.

Jason Hartman talks with T. Harv Eker about Secrets of the Millionaire Mind which reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?

The shocking answer is: None of the above!

T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it.

In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth.

If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too.

When the United States stopped backing dollars with gold in 1968, the nature of money changed, becoming the fiat currency system that has now put the world into an unprecedented recession.

Jason Hartman is joined by returning guest, Richard Duncan, to talk about how we are in danger of a global Great Depression and how we can stop it. Richard’s previous book talked about the inevitable collapse of the dollar, and his new book discusses “a new theoretical construct, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that is the key to understanding not only the developments that led to the crisis, but also to understanding how events will play out in the years ahead.” 

Richard explains how the expansion of credit eventually implodes and the dangers of the contraction of credit. Richard Duncan is the author of three books on the global economic crisis. The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures (John Wiley & Sons, 2003, updated 2005), predicted the current global economic disaster with extraordinary accuracy. It was an international bestseller.

His second book was The Corruption of Capitalism: A strategy to rebalance the global economy and restore sustainable growth. It was published by CLSA Books in December 2009. His latest book is The New Depression: The Breakdown of the Paper Money Economy (John Wiley & Sons, 2012). Since beginning his career as an equities analyst in Hong Kong in 1986, Richard has served as global head of investment strategy at ABN AMRO Asset Management in London, worked as a financial sector specialist for the World Bank in Washington D.C., and headed equity research departments for James Capel Securities and Salomon Brothers in Bangkok. He also worked as a consultant for the IMF in Thailand during the Asia Crisis. He is now chief economist at Blackhorse Asset Management in Singapore.

Richard has appeared frequently on CNBC, CNN, BBC and Bloomberg Television, as well as on BBC World Service Radio. He has published articles in The Financial Times, The Far East Economic Review, FinanceAsia and CFO Asia. He is also a well-known speaker whose audiences have included The World Economic Forum’s East Asia Economic Summit in Singapore, The EuroFinance Conference in Copenhagen, The Chief Financial Officers’ Roundtable in Shanghai, and The World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. Richard studied literature and economics at Vanderbilt University (1983) and international finance at Babson College (1986); and, between the two, spent a year travelling around the world as a backpacker.

Jason Hartman is joined by author and real estate investor, Barb Getty, as she talks about her journey into real estate investing, what it takes to be a good landlord or property manager, how to find and keep great tenants, and explains the eviction process. 

The second of four children, Barb was born and raised in Gary, IN.  She graduated cum laude from Purdue and married soon after. After seven moves in nine years of marriage, her family settled in Indianapolis.

Tragedy struck in 1992 when her 17-year-old son was killed in a car accident.  Her daughters were 16 and 14 at the time.  Sadly, Barb’s 21-year marriage ended eight months after Todd’s death.  She bought a small home needing repairs, and following the fix-up, she and her daughters moved in.

Pleased with that first project, Barb purchased her first duplex (with little money, no credit and no experience), hoping she had the wherewithal to be a landlord.  Today, she owns 27+ units — a mix of single and multi-family, low and middle income rentals.  CNBC.com  interviewed her recently and the article also appeared in USA Today.   Barb has also added high-end property management, consulting and speaking engagements to her business.

Although she hasn’t had an easy road, Barb is both financially and emotionally invested in her work.  She invites people to watch a video showing scenes she faces as a landlord in the inner city.  It’s very compelling.  Barb authored The Landlord Chronicles:  Investing in Low and Middle Income Rentals, published in 2010. Armed with a positive attitude and a strong sense of humor, Barb Getty is making a difference in her tenants’ lives, the neighborhood and the city as well.

Coming to us from London, Max Keiser joins Jason Hartman for a fast-paced interview about what is going on in our world with GDP, the debt ceiling and debt loads, gold and silver markets, and currency collapse.

Max is the host of “The Oracle with Max Keiser” for BBC World News and the author of the Keiser Report.  Jason and Max discuss how long the world governments can put off the inevitable collapse of the fiat money produced by the central banks. Max talks about the various currencies around the world and which countries are set to implode. 

Other topics that Max covers are countries that are losing their sovereignty, basically being held hostage and managed by entities outside of their own country, such as the IMF and Central Banks, how bonds play a role in this issue, and the edging toward a global tax. Max talks about the many ways that the world is being led into a globalized currency, which is not a theory, but happening in real time.

In addition to hosting the show and authoring the Kesier Report, Max is a blogger for the Huffington Post, and he has also presented features for the “People and Power” new magazine series on Aljazeera English. Max Keiser is the creator, co-founder and former CEO of HSX Holdings/Hollywood Stock Exchange, later sold to Cantor Fitzgerald.

Max designed, scoped, and built the Hollywood Stock Exchange with Michael Burns. Max was awarded a US patent (number 5950176) for the ‘Virtual Specialist Technology” on which the Hollywood Stock Exchange operates. He created virtual securities; MovieStocks, and StarBonds and created the first fully convertible virtual currency, the Hollywood Dollar. The Hollywood Stock Exchange remains the highest volume stock exchange in the world.

Max presented “Rumble at the Box Office” for NBC’s Access Hollywood. He also produced and hosted the weekly talk show, “Buy, Sell, Hold” for CBS radio’s KLSX in Los Angeles. In his role as technology entrepreneur, Max recently created Kinooga, a Web 3.0 social finance site for indie films.

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.

If you thought economics was boring, think again. At the heart of wars, land grabs, politics, history, and almost any sort of human interaction lies economics. Remember – economics is about money, and money, depending upon your perspective, either makes the world go ‘round or is the root of all evil.

Either way, Jason Hartman’s interview of master economist, Martin Armstrong, for episode #382 of The Creating Wealth Show makes for scintillating listening. First, some background.
