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?
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.

Escape to the suburbs! Jason Hartman and Evan Moffic discuss the changes approaching in how we look at our homes. With the benefit of work and school being just a few feet away from our beds, we are all looking to improve our homes. And for those that are currently renting an apartment in the high-density, urban environments, a move in the direction of suburban-living is looking more and more promising. Homebuilders are saying that they are already seeing the effects of this growing trend.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are buying loans in forbearance and essentially they keep kicking the can down the road, delaying the inevitable.
[1;30] “Inflation is a disease of money, thus inflation may have become the oldest form of government finance…” - Jens O. Parrson
[7:00] Escape to the suburbs! All of the reasons why both present and past.
[9:00] People are cocooning in their house.
[13:30] Home improvement will climb as a home office and school space is needed, colleges will change their format, gyms will try new concepts.
[21:00] Homebuilders have seen sales jump as renters flee small urban apartments.
[24:30] Why Elon Musk is talking about moving Tesla out of California.
[27:20] FannieMae and FreddieMac are acting in a dysfunctional manner to bail out the system.

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.
[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”

Today, Jason Hartman discusses the Phillips curve and its relevance to our current economic situation. While we are all challenged in ways to adapt to our shelter-in-place advising, several benefits are being popularized out of necessity. Telemedicine, or telehealth, is growing rapidly, and not just for humans. Veterinary practices are using telemedicine for your pet's health as well.
Steve Hochberg returns to elaborate on the Elliott Wave. How do we know when we have too much debt, the U.S., or the individual?
[1:00] Is Kim Jong-Un alive?
[5:30] Telemedicine, we’re finally there
[8:00] The Phillips curve
[14:00] Monetary policy comes from central banks, and fiscal policy comes from the government
Guest: Steve Hochberg
[22:00] Everything the Fed has said they’re going to do has been backed by the Treasury. The treasury has pledged to cover any losses that the Fed is going to incur through their lending programs, and this can’t go on forever
[24:00] How do we know when we have too much debt?
[28:30] “I think there’s a huge bull market starting right now, and it’s the bull-market in cash” -Hochberg

Jason Hartman shares sound advice on the top four reasons that a company fails. Steve Hochberg joins Jason to break down the methods of the Elliott Wave Principle. Listen to how the Elliott Wave Principle used collective investor psychology to predict 2020 stock market trends, without the influence of Coronavirus, as early as late 2019. Will we continue to see the stability of linear markets vs the volatility of cyclical markets, post-pandemic? Do recessions cause cautious businessmen or do cautious businessmen cause recessions?
[2:30] From a discussion: the four primary reasons a company fails
[4:00] Number one, FEAR - Faults, education, appearing, real
[5:15] Number two, mindset
[9:00] Number three, lack of connections
[11:30] Number four, Lacking systems and process
[15:20] What is going on in the financial world?
[17:00] Unfolding the Elliott Wave Principle
[18:20] “Late 2019, the U.S. economy had some very strong economic numbers, the social mood was very elevated, but there were some underlying problems going on”
[19:20] The yield curve: the three month U.S. Treasury bill yield minus the ten year U.S. Treasury note, had inverted, which was a key indicator in the last months of 2019.
[23:00] Cyclical vs linear markets, post-pandemic
[28:00] Do recessions cause cautious businessmen or do cautious businessmen cause recessions?
[30:00] An Elliot Wave is a hierarchical fractal, it has self-similar patterns at all degrees of the scale
[30:45] Why do you prefer the DOW over the S&P?

There’s no place like home. Jason Hartman interviews Dottie Herman on her track to success, from realtor to CEO. Dottie shares her experiences in New York post 9/11, and how this affected the overall mood of New Yorkers and how they wanted to live. What kind of conclusions about shifting mindset from Covid-19 can we draw about the American home? Even banks are scared about giving housing loans with so many jobs in the air.
