Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today, Jason talks about the 12 days of Christmas- adjusted for inflation! For 38 years, PNC has calculated the prices of the 12 gifts from the classic holiday song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." The PNC Christmas Price Index® is a whimsical holiday tradition, which this year includes adjustments for the pandemic’s impact on the cost of purchasing the presents in the renowned carol.

And then Jason talks about cats! and dogs! and martial arts! how they move and fight... and how we can use our opponent's weight to our advantage! Now translate that metaphor to our fight against inflation and the forces of government and central banks! We align ourselves with them. And what do you get? Inflation induced debt destruction!
