1644 FBF: Averting A Global Depression with Richard Duncan Author of ‘The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences & Cures’
This episode of FlashBack Friday was originally published in December, 2012
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 traveling around the world as a backpacker.

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.

1629 FBF: Finding & Keeping Great Tenants + Tips for Landlords & Property Managers with Real Estate Investor Barb Getty
This episode of FlashBack Friday was originally published on: Jan 23, 2013
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.
