Jason welcomes income property investor Andrew Baker back to the show to chat about historical data, the future and all things financial. Capitalism is the economic driver in the US and it affords Americans with freedoms and abundances rarely available in other nations. It has allowed the sharing economy to blossom, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to exist and the blockchain algorithm to reinvent financial transactions. But, the government is vying to control the money supply. As history shows us again and again, investors should never bet against the Fed and should invest in the most historically proven asset class, the single family home.
