Borderless Podcast

I have been writing for a while about what seems to me to be an obvious bubble that has been building for years in the college debt market. Here is one article from a little over two years ago that I wrote about the what I saw going on in this market and how you may be able to profit from where things are going.

This week I revisit this topic with Antony Davies who is a scholar at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and an associate professor of economics at Dukaine University. He has written several articles on the college debt bubble like the one that you can find here

We go in depth about the cause of the situation that the universities in the US are in today and how someone thinking of going to higher education should correctly make that decision.

This is one of the most informative interviews yet!

It was a pleasure speaking to Jason Hartman as I have been following him quite a while. I remember being very impressed with his videos when I was 18 years old. Now he is 660 podcasts down and the amount of information he has available on is incredible.

During the interview we talk in depth about some of the commandments of real estate investing. These are the core rules that, if you follow correctly, will virtually assure that your investments will be successful.

During the interview we also talk about the US economy and whether you should be concerned with it’s sustainability. Jason thinks that it is delusional to fear a crashing dollar and makes a case for why he  sees the US as still being the place to be for real estate investing.

Johnny Ward came from a poor, single parent family in Ireland. Maybe not having certain advantages cultivated an insane drive to succeed. But success is not about the money; it's about the lifestyle--always. Although the money's nice too! At 32, he's almost completed his goal of being the only Irishman to visit every country in the world.

He talks about rejecting the 9-to-5 life, the importance of taking risks and the "beautiful hell" he's experienced on some of his travels. Like fighting to breathe when being held under water, the burning desire to realize your goals is what he considers the key to success. Enjoy!

Imagine selling store-bought firecrackers on eBay, along with many others, but because of your political stance being singled out and imprisoned for 10 months. It might make a person consider alternative life options.  Maybe that's why, almost singlehandedly, Roger Ver funded the seed rounds for the entire first generation of Bitcoin businesses. 

In this week's episode, we talk to Roger about just how far BTC has come and how you can actually use it today. We also discuss the decision to renounce his US citizenship. Enjoy.
