Jason Hartman talks with Financial Survival Network's founder Kerry Lutz for the whole episode today, as the two discuss the very important concept of financial repression.

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.
