A Greater Depression Is Ahead with Doug Casey

• 49 min

The housing market has calmed, but it’s still strong. The homeownership rate of 65% is poised to fall these next few years. People must live somewhere. This should make for more renters. Mortgage delinquencies have fallen for seven straight quarters. The forbearance program kept people in their homes. “The Great Reshuffling” describes the US housing market since 2020. Inflation flips money upside-down. Focus on prudent borrowing, not saving. International Man Doug Casey joins us. He calls for a “Greater Depression” ahead. For consumers, the costs of energy, food, and housing have become crippling.  Doug thinks that the decline of world economies will continue. World cities have more people living on the streets.  He thinks that the Fed can’t hike rates very high. It will result in too many debt defaults. Then how will inflation be curbed? Doug thinks you should save, but don’t save in dollars. Are price controls coming? That’s when the government tells companies that there’s a ceiling on the price they can charge for their goods and services. We discuss what you can do to prevent being wiped out in a crisis. I discuss living well vs. austerity.

From NYC’s Brooklyn Bridge to Bainbridge Island, WA and across 188 nations worldwide, I’m Keith Weinhold. This is GRE!   And it’s Episode 401. Now, no, it’s definitely not episode 401(k). No life deferral plans here! Uh, oh excuse me… they’e called… uh, tax deferral plans. Though life-deferral plans would be a more apropos moniker.   I’m grateful that you’re here for another wealth-building week.   Now… asking an angry spouse to calm down is not exactly a tactic that's... effective.   By now, Jerome Powell has been effective at raising interest rates to help America's housing market calm down.   Though mortgage rates have inched lower in recent weeks, they're still 2% higher now than they were a year ago today.   In fact, the rate rise from early March to early May was the swiftest that I've seen in my entire life.   Rates scaled a wall. Clearly, this impacts affordability.    The rate of property sales is a little lower now… off its peak.   It's getting more Darwinian out there. The NAR estimates that 15% of wannabe first-time homebuyers will be priced out of the market this year.    People have to live somewhere. If they can't own, they'll have to rent... or keep living in their parents' basement… that’s an option for some people
