Jason Hartman takes today to discuss the glorious rental demographics that are sticking around from his prediction several years ago that the next 10 years will be great for landlords. Now he's pushing that prediction back for 10 years from now because the demographics are just so good still. With all the possibility out there, however, don't feel the need to rush after the shiny objects out there like "Opportunity Zones". Rather, take your time, do your homework, and make sure it's the right thing for you.
Then Jason talks to his in-house economist Thomas about the World Economic Forum in Davos and what came out of it. Thomas gives his predictions for the next 2-3 years, why some looming deflation might be a good thing, and whether we're in a 4th leg of the Industrial Revolution.
