AMA 208 – Searching for Assets with Kerry Lutz

Jason Hartman went on The Financal Survival Network with Kerry Lutz on October 16, 2017, to discuss what’s going on in real estate around the country, if we’re approaching the top of the market, what’s happened to the banks that were “too big to fail”, Blockchain technology, and more.

Host Kerry Lutz and Jason also take a dive into the mortgage crisis of 2008, and whether it could make a comeback in today’s environment.

Key Takeaways:

[2:26] Where are the assets?

[7:02] Why it’s important to remember that you can’t hear the dogs that don’t bark

[9:07] Too big to fail has gotten even bigger

[12:34] Jason saw the first part of the mortgage crisis coming, but didn’t see the second part that involved Wall Street coming at all

[17:37] Blockchain technology is phenomenal, but it’s not Bitcoin, which you HAVE to remember

AMA 207 – Constitutional Economics with Dr Paul Broun

Jason Hartman talks with Congressman Dr. Paul Broun about what’s going on in Washington in regards to policy and the constitutionality of it all. This was recorded prior to the GOP Tax Reform bill passing, but Dr. Broun is a proponent of a tax system that’s more in line with a flat tax.

The two discuss the irrational belief people have that the marketplace won’t react to actions the government takes, as well as why the corporate tax rate needs to be reduced (and who that ultimately helps). They also discuss how to make change actually happen, and whether getting rid of the federal income tax is feasible and if it’d be harmful for the economy on the whole.

Key Takeaways:

[2:20] The major principle of most politicians is re-election

[5:37] It’s unrealistic to think that people are going to stop voting for things that are in their immediate best interest

[12:32] Many people seem to not think about the fact that the marketplace reacts

[16:28] Corporations don’t actually pay the corporate tax, it’s the consumer who bears the weight

[22:04] Making change happen is very hard, everything has been going to the left for at least 50 years. Paul wants to get rid of a lot of federal departments

[25:33] Would getting rid of the federal income tax and moving to a sales tax harm the overall US economy?
