In today’s intro Jason Hartman looks at a few signs in the real estate market that aren’t so rosey, as well as adjusting the Brady Bunch house for inflation and seeing how real estate holds up against it (and why linear markets are the better bet for steady appreciation).
Then, in today’s 10th episode, Jason talks with Dr. Robert Whaples, Professor and Chair in the Department of Economics, Wake Forest University and co-editor and managing editor of The Independent Review. The two discuss the current Pope’s world view and the nature of the Catholic church today.
