Today’s episode starts with an invitation to Jason’s Philadelphia Creating Wealth seminar that’s coming up soon. He also finishes his talk with Doug about portfolio reviews and making your money actually work for you.
Finally Jason talks to Dr. Eric Pichet, Professor & Director of Specialized Masters Program in Wealth Management & Real Estate Management at KEDGE Business School in France, about real estate around the world, as well as the current view of cryptocurrency by governments across the globe.
The two discuss how there is no global real estate market, but there are similarities in each of them, why the US home market is so much bigger than other nations, how cryptocurrencies are being received in Europe and whether governments and central banks will be moving to crush them in the near future.
