With an insurmountable national debt and a disastrous worldwide economy, could the United States still come out top dog? Join Jason Hartman and returning guest, Daniel Ameduri, inflation expert and Chief Strategist of FutureMoneyTrends.com, as they examine the possibilities and talk about Daniel’s predictions for the new year.

Daniel explains the difference between price inflation, which, though we have inflation, we aren’t seeing it in everything yet, and hyperinflation, which is a total loss of faith in currency. He talks about how if we have deflationary shock, it won’t matter what the Federal Reserve does.

People around the world will lose faith in America and the dollar will become worthless, and feels there will be some type of quantitative easing. Daniel notes that, in his opinion, the $20 trillion mark in our national debt will be the psychological level at which people stop buying our debt. Jason and Daniel also talk about resource wars as resources are becoming scarce. According to real data, oil has peaked, silver has peaked, as well as many other natural resources.

Join Jason Hartman as he interviews author and financial journalist Roger Lowenstein regarding the history of Wall Street’s demise. Roger talks about the increases in choice, risk, hedging, more volatility, and how free markets are open to speculation, greed, fear and manipulation. There are more markets today susceptible to booms and busts. In the old days, local bankers determined loan eligibility. Today, bankers internationally, who don’t know anything about their clientele, determine eligibility, often to the detriment of the borrowers.

Roger and Jason debate whether Wall Street needs more regulation or deregulation, and discuss the consequences of government interference. They also talk about many of the Wall Street mistakes and the corporations that were rescued by the bailouts and the unprecedented number of failed mortgages.  They end their discussion with observations of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Join Jason Hartman and MC Company Principal and Co-Partner, as well as the Real Estate Advisor of Robert Kiyosaki, Ken McElroy, in this insightful discussion about real estate investing, inflation, and the effect of today’s economy on the rental markets. Both Ken and Jason learned the power of leverage to hedge against inflation, and in this episode, they share their combined knowledge with the listeners. Ken feels that investing in real estate and watching the dollar, mortgage rates, and inflation are lifelong endeavors and it’s important to stay on top of those things. He also shares why he prefers apartments over residential investments, expressing it allows greater control over the financial outcome of the asset.

Ken talks about the pent up demand of Gen Y’ers, who currently are forced to live at home due to scarcity of jobs, but who will eventually flow into the rental market if and when jobs are created and the economy begins to improve. Jason and Ken also share their similar knowledge regarding macro- and micro-markets, the importance of researching job markets, employment rates, population, schools, etc. “At the end of the day, it’s all about demographics,” Ken says.

Join Jason Hartman and Andrew “Ranting Andy” Hoffman, Miles Franklin’s Marketing Director, as they discuss the new game on Wall Street with its evil derivatives and destructive investment advice. Andy says Wall Street is no longer in the business of destroying retailers. Ever since the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, they’ve been in the business of destroying countries and taking power. Andy talks about Goldman-Sachs infiltration into political positions in other countries, and the infiltration into municipalities by other big Wall Street thugs, such as JP Morgan.

There is no more retail stock market and the consequence is record unemployment numbers. The government has been in bed with Wall Street and pushing out propaganda for years, but people are fed up with the game and the government is on the defensive.

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.

Join Jason Hartman and Doug Casey of Casey Research for a candid discussion about the condition of America and what is to come. Doug feels we needed a depression, but it doesn’t have to be as long and dismal as it’s going to be for most people.

The U.S. government has gone about everything completely opposite of the right way; it’s totally bankrupt. They’re selling money/debt to the Federal Reserve because no other country in the world wants to buy our devalued American dollar.

Doug feels for the average American because he/she is not going to profit from it and is going to be turned into a common serf. Pension funds are in trouble and are nothing more than the government’s scheme to finance its debt.
