Ryan Moran, author of, 12 Months to $1 Million, joins Jason today to discuss some of his tactics that led to his success. Sometimes better business isn’t about what you sell, but more-so, how your business is focused. While we often think of the question, “what is the product,” the focus needs to be, “who is the audience?” As well, Ryan shares his views on real estate investing and the economy, post-pandemic.

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. 

Key Takeaways:

[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”

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. 

Key Takeaways:

[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.

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? 

Key Takeaways:

[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?
