Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 421, originally published in October 2014.
Investing guru, Bryan Ellis, editor of Bryan Ellis Investing Letter, joins Jason Hartman on today’s Creating Wealth Show to discuss some of the common pit-falls of investing, as well as to give some indication of the potential foreclosure rate. They consider the state of today’s smoke and mirrors economy and its impact on future investing and finances.
04.35 – The economy’s strength situation now seems to be a lot more regional than it was around 2007-2008.
05.30 – RealtyTrac’s announcement about foreclosures shows us that we can’t build a future without finishing what we started in the past.
06.15 – People’s three fundamental needs are the same as they’ve always been: food, clothing and shelter.
13.30 – We need the world to realize that the economy we’re running off is just smoke and mirrors.
17.30 – When the changes start to take place, huge inflation could be a very real possibility.
19.00 – Investment doesn’t have to be in stocks; it can be in real estate, or even just in commodities such as copper, steel, labour etc.
21.30 – Think of a deal from the most conservative standpoint you can, and ask yourself if it makes sense.
23.20 – A lot of people still haven’t realized that intellectual property could be the answer to successful investing.
25.00 – Many companies have a lot of intellectual property that they don’t even classify as such.
26.50 – The entire structure of this intellectual property set-up focuses on the presence of a third party.
29.30 – Ultimately, the fact still remains that the fundamentals are what matter.
