Jason Hartman breaks down some important topics in today’s show as he talks about one of the vital assets you have in your toolkit, and that’s your credit score. With so many different companies and credit scoring models, it’s key that you understand what impacts your score. You need to stay on top of it (and make sure it doesn’t get TOO high because then you’re not doing enough of what Jason thinks you should be doing).
Jason also looks into what kind of a job the Fed has been doing on their charter, opposition to Amazon, Google and Facebook, the myth of the Rented Home purchase, and some interesting results from his recent DNA test.
