Episode 369:  Is there a pending recession?  Yes, probably in the “products” side of the economy, but the “services” side of the economy has yet to fully bloom.  Think in-person experiences, travel, leisure…regardless of interest rates, that sector is BOOMING! ------------------------------------------------------

⚡️ Black Friday SELLOFF…FED will never raise interest rates

Episode 346:  I’m not at all concerned about the stock market selloff that happened on Black Friday.  In fact, the rally will likely continue even longer, because now the FED will be more hesitant to raise interest rates.  In this episode I discuss the two primary drivers of COVID inflation…and neither have anything to do with FED monetary policy.  This temporary, transient inflation is being caused by: lack of ImmigrationInheritance…the greatest generational transfer of wealth in history. ------------------------------------------------------
