As well, how long can the stimulus work before it has no effect?

George, a regular visitor on our show, brings you some unsettling details outlining the great reset and the repo market. How are communism and capitalism connected? How far will artificial intelligence infiltrate into our every day lives?

[28:50] The digital currency that wins the game is the one backed by the government. 

[31:00] The possibility of digital currency backed by the government puts an overwhelming amount of control into the government’s hands. 

[34:30] People generally revolt against their inability to eat, not having freedom stripped away.

[37:40] Is there a chance that we can sustain our current lifestyle if we move to green energy?

[39:45] Is green energy a trade-off or a solution?

David Sussman, Founder and CEO of Valcor Worldwide joins Jason Hartman in discussing insights into what is going on with small-medium sized business, real estate, and the impact of COVID-19. David suggests that mainstream media has narrowed its focus on Coronavirus and the 2020 election; meanwhile, it hasn’t covered much to any of the potential economic tsunamis we face.

Jason Hartman with guest, Harry Dent, for the rant of the year! “This is a bubble that is waiting to pop,” says Dent as he opens up about the Coronavirus just being a cover for some underlying economic issues. “This is much worse than a debt-bubble; it’s a financial asset bubble.”

Ellen Brown is today’s guest here to discuss Universal Basic Income, UBI. As well, she shares some interesting details about what happens to the money when a debt is paid. How did China increase its money supply by such a large percentage in two decades? 

Key Takeaways:

Guest: Ellen Brown, author of over a dozen books including, The Public Bank Solution, From Austerity to Prosperity

[2:30] What is a postal account? 

[10:45] What is the end game of money spending?

[12:10] Money is lent into existence. Banks create the principal but they don’t create the interest, so debt always grows faster than the money supply.

[15:00] The real economy is always short of money because there’s a hole in the bucket that always drains into the financial economy.

[16:00] What is the financialized economy? 

[20:20] Debt grows until it gets so high that people can’t borrow anymore, so they pay down their debts instead of taking out new debts. That shrinks the money supply. That goes into deflation which goes into depression. 

[22:30] Money evaporates when it pays off the debt.

[26:30] All of our money is credit. China increased its money supply by 1800% in twenty years, and they did not run into hyperinflation. Find out more.

Jason Hartman and Rabbi Evan Moffic talk about the big migration out of high density areas. Starting in 2016 a trend of moving to low density areas started to grow and the pandemic has encouraged the departure from more densely populated areas. While these trends may rely heavily on the wants and needs of Generation Z, health issues and worker experiences might speed up the migration. 

Key Takeaways:

[4:00] Pandemic proved how densely we are living, and also how successfully you can live working remotely

[7:00] Starting in 2016, a trend of non-metropolitan counties were gaining population more-so than metropolitan counties

[9:45] A lot of the migration trends could depend a lot on Generation Z

[13:00] What led you to believe that this mass migration to lower density living would occur?

[16:40] The average population density (APD) of the U.S.A. is only 87 people per square mile

[17:28] The APD of metropolitan areas of the U.S.A. is 283 people per square mile, and the APD of New York City is 27,000 people per square mile

[21:30] The rise of socialism 

[25:30] “Expansions make millionaires, recessions and depressions make billionaires”

[26:20] “In a recession or a depression, the person who wins is the person who loses the least”

Returning guest, Harry Dent, discusses the economy, company buybacks, and quantitative easing. Take a deeper look into the economic influence of each generation with their peak earning power, and peak spending trends. 

We are all searching for information on what to expect in uncertain times. Look at patterns Harry has analyzed to predict what’s to come. Jason discusses the roommate component as a part of understanding shadow demand for housing. 

Harry Dent shares his thoughts on where Baby Boomers and Millennials will go next, be that downsizing or repurposing the McMansions. What differences between the two generations have led to peak earning and peak spending trends, and how will they affect the housing market? 

 

[1:30] Harry Dent, Demographer

[2:30] Puerto Rico, better weather, lower cost and better tax benefits

[3:53] Famous for predictions on all aspects of the economy

[3:50 ] QE Quantitative easing

[8:00] What is the age of someone’s peak earning power and peak spending?

[8:50] “Quantitative easing is not putting money into the banks system and lending, it is literally buying financial assets like bonds, which puts more money into the pool that’s actually chasing financial assets, and that drives up financial assets.” - Dent

[13:55] Company stocks are going up because of shrinking the number of shares, rather than growing the economy

[13:25] You say the economy is fake?

[14:25] Governments always stimulate the economy

[17:55] Are company stock buybacks really that bad? 

[18:00] The stock market is the best leading indicator of the economy

[23:00] After 1995, things start to get out of whack in relation to GDP

[27:10] Every 90 years, like a clock, we see a bigger bubble and a crash

[31:00] What are the biggest bubbles now, Apple, Google, Amazon, tech companies

[34:00] China’s workforce peaked in 2011 and has been declining ever since

[38:40] Harry explains the repo-market

[52:00] If we don’t rebalance this debt, and go through what you always go through after a debt bubble, we may end up like Japan

[56:00] Jason, "Financial assets like the wall street economy vs real assets like the main street economy are far riskier"

[23:15] Have you seen success in getting loans with brokers?

[25:30] Every bank is accepting PPP & EIDL applications even though they’re both on hold due to running out of money

[18:30] Pro-Tips: Show your work; have an excel spreadsheet that shows how you came to your figures

[30:30] How difficult is the one-page application?
