We hear about the national debt of 34 Trillion and this number and that but it's hard to really think about what those numbers mean.  I break it all down in this podcast to a guy making 100k a year and put all those numbers in perspective.  That guy making 100k a year would be $722k in debt and spending 127k in 2024 alone.  It only gets worse and more unsustainable when you look at that same guys prospects 10 years out.  Listen and get it all here and use these stats when debating your friends and coworkers.  Tune in for more to come...

The Fed has raised rates to the 2-2.25% range and this is the 8th rate hike since the fed began raising them in 2015. Fed Chairman, Jerome Powell, has given several speeches in the last week and there’s several insights we can gain from Mr. Powell just by reading closely into what he’s saying. Folks, this guy is completely clueless about the next economic crisis brewing out there. We are nearing the end of this super bubble.

Under Republican President, Donald Trump, the $1.3 Trillion omnibus spending bill has been signed. This bill increase spending more than Obama did!  This spending bill actually increases the budgets to many projects that Obama and the democrats love! Seriously why are people still playing the party game when we are heading the way of hyperinflation and a currency collapse just like what’s going on in Venezuela today! Trump will spend 41% more than Obama did! Where’s the tea party for this one?

Capitalism today is seen as a bad word but this is because what people see as capitalism is really crony capitalism! This is what we need to change in people’s minds!  This is not how capitalism really is!  Capitalism is about exchanging value for value. The very wealthy are getting wealthier at a faster pace today compared to every other income group out there because the very rich benefit from an inflationary monetary policy from the Federal Reserve!  We need to stop this cronyism now before it’s too late and all we are left with is an authoritarian regime.

On January 20th Donald Trump was officially sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The 17 minute long speech he gave had a very nationalistic sort of tone to it and that is not a good sign for lovers of liberty.  Obama added $9.3 Trillion to the national debt in 8 years, while Bush added $4.9 Trillion. The problem with our economy today and the problems our country is facing is we’re spending too much money and the government is too big!  Both parties are at fault and the only way to make America great again is by reducing the size and scope of government!

Vehicle discounts increased in December of 2016 to increase auto sales to yet, another record year!  Demand for cars has fallen because the auto bubble is deflating and it took a decrease in vehicle prices to bring people into dealerships. How much longer will this go on? The auto loan bubble will be fully pricked by the time the next economic crisis is here and we seem to be very close to that. Also, companies like Cadillac are offering a new program where you pay a $1,500 subscription and you can drive any top of the line Cadillac car you want. There is no contract, just a $1,500 a month subscription. This new program will begin to roll out on February 1st, 2017 in New York City. Is this the future of the car industry? What’s coming next?

Donald Trump is 10 days away from being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States so we have to ask ourselves what will a Trump presidency look like? The way Trump is on twitter all the time saying he will put tariffs on a company that sends jobs overseas is rather concerning. It’s going to be an interesting 4 years of the Donald and I don’t think they will be good for liberty at all.

Uber has just recently settled a $100 million class action lawsuit so that they could keep Uber drivers as independent contractors. So why is the independent contractor crucial to Uber’s success instead of the employee model?  It all comes down to avoiding costly government regulations! Government regulations are making it too expensive to do business in America today!  The government has its boot on the throats of businesses and they wonder why our economy is still struggling! When will we actually start repealing government regulations as a positive step forward instead of passing more regulations as the “answer?” I’m not sure but I’m not going to hold my breath.
