When 18 out of 20 valuation sources say the S&P is radically overvalued, it might be true. Most of you know never to invest in the stock market (unless you are an insider) but just in case, Jason shares a table with some astounding estimations of how overvalued the S&P is. And a local market specialist joins us from Oklahoma City to describe the benefits of investing in the primarily new construction market there. He says that a dollar stretches further, tornadoes have moved East and it’s a landlord friendly market.


Jason has left the most expensive city in the US, NYC, and is enjoying fly over state pricing once again. The meat of this episode is a recording of a Creating Wealth Live session which focuses on inflation. We all know inflation is right around the corner as it is the only way the government can get out of the current economic climate. Inflation will erode our purchasing power, our stocks, our savings and the rich will get richer. Investing in Income Property is your best weapon against the forthcoming inflationary increase.

Key Takeaways:

Is the oil gone and do new energy sources have environmental sins of their own?

If you are using microeconomics to plan for your future you may be ready to sell your assets and buy a “Preppers guide to self-sustainability”. But, if you take a step back and look at the bigger picture of macroeconomics you will see that it’s an amazing time to be alive. Jason’s guest Jawad Mian says “the key is to watch the disruption”. Manufacturing may be at an all time low but the services provided by Silicon Valley and the tech industry will offset any economic loss with growth, just in different terms. The market always corrects itself just differently than people perceive it to. The future is brighter than you might think.

Join Jason Hartman and returning guest, Ellen Brown, author of Web of Debt, for a discussion of the United States’ debt ceiling, QE2, inflation, as well as a brief explanation of how money came to equal debt. Ellen explains why the debt ceiling is unconstitutional, how the government is legally committed to paying its debts. She points out the contradiction that has been for more than 100 years, since WWI. The easing put into place at that time was only to be a temporary measure.

Ellen also talks about shadow banking causing the crisis by money being lent into existence, slight of hand. The only real money are coins, which are one-tenth of the total money in circulation. Ellen also discusses QE2 , where the government agreed to pay the interest on borrowed money in order to maintain control of the Federal Funds rate. She said there are a lot of reserve funds on the books in certain foreign banks, including bond dealers, that is just being held.  Ellen also touches on the national debt, Glass-Steagall, and proposes state-owned banks as part of the solution, with the basic idea that we take care of our own, much the same way that Japan is reliant on their own Central Bank.

Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and "the money trust." She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back. Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s.

That experience produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system. Brown's eleven books include the bestselling Nature's Pharmacy, co-authored with Dr. Lynne Walker, which has sold 285,000 copies.

The world of investing involves many considerations. Chief among these are the two “Demons” of investing that must both be defeated in order to realize success. The first demon is risk, and the second is inflation. Risk comes from the fact that future returns are uncertain, and it is not possible to foresee all future events. Investments that seem ‘safe’ may turn out to have hidden dangers that we did not notice. Risk can never be eliminated, it can only be managed. The best way to do this is by properly diversifying your investments so that they are not all subject to the same market shocks. The second demon of investing is inflation. Inflation is especially difficult because it erodes the value of your dollars. Defeating the demon of inflation requires investment in multi-dimensional assets that are optimized to defeat inflation. Income properties meet this criteria well because the property itself holds real value by nature of the replacement cost of the structure, the loan allows you to have a fixed cost of capital for three decades, and the cash flow is pushed up by inflation while you cost structure remains flat because of the fixed-rate financing.

In this impromptu show Jason interviews his mother, Joyce, on her simple low-tech approach to investing in income properties.

Hear Jason’s mom share her experiences parlaying a low income job and a small $12,000 investment into a $7,000,000 portfolio that generated a net income of well over $200,000 annually (and rather passively) at retirement… not including tax benefits!  You can create wealth and passive income the old fashioned way or accelerate the process with our modern strategies.  Either way, it’s all about passive checks in your mailbox every month.  While the journey of a real estate investor is usually fun and easy, there may be trials and tribulations while buying and managing your portfolio. Like the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady wins the race.

The time will pass anyway, why not put time on your side by holding income properties?  The motto to live by; “Don’t wait to buy real estate, buy real estate then wait!”  Remember – life is a marathon, not a sprint; and if you want a surefire road to success, then don’t lose sight of the big picture.

Jason Hartman welcomes Ronald Reagan to the show to share a moving Christmas story. Next, some mortgage financial planning illustrated by “A Tale of Two Brothers” by Ric Edelman who has educated his clients for years on the benefits of integrating their mortgage into their overall financial plan.In his book, The New Rules of Money, Ric tells the story of two brothers, each of whom secures a mortgage to buy a $200,000 home.

Each brother earns $70,000 a year and has $40,000 in savings. The first brother, Brother A, believes than half the nation’s banks failed and millions of homeowners, unable to raise the cash they needed to payoff their loans, lost their homes. Out of this the American Mantra was born: Always own your home outright. Never carry a mortgage. The reasoning behind America’s new mantra was really quite simple: if the economy fell to pieces, at least you still had your home and the bank couldn’t take it away from you. Maybe you couldn’t put food on the table or pay your bills, but your home was secure.

Since the Great Depression laws have been introduced that make it illegal for banks to call your loan due. The bank can no longer call you up and say, We’re running a little short on cash and need you to pay off your loan in the next thirty days.Additionally, the Fed is now quick to infuse money into the system if there is a run on the banks, as we saw in 1987 and Y2K. Also, the FDIC was created to insure banks. Still, it’s no wonder the fear of losing their home became instilled in the hearts and minds of the American people, and they quickly grew to fear their mortgage. In the 1950’s and 60’s families would throw mortgage burning parties to celebrate paying off their home. And so, because of this fear of their mortgage, for nearly 75 years most people have overlooked the opportunities their mortgage provides to build financial security.

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.
