Jason Hartman talks about the K-Shaped recovery. Are we moving to a smaller economy? Can Biden kill the 1031 exchange, and use those tax funds elsewhere? How will this impact every aspect of real estate surrounding investor deals?
Jason interviews Chairman of Whalen Global Advisors LLC, R. Christopher Whalen. Whalen speaks on location changes of people and businesses due to Coronavirus. Not only are business locations changing, but companies have been forced to move away from the “old way” of doing business and finally adapting to innovations in technology and communication. Whalen also gives a glimpse into his recent book and discusses the fed’s strategy to steer clear of deflationary times. Will we see consequences from the creation of money and bailouts?
