Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Jason Hartman interviews Alfred W. McCoy, Harrington Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on his work investigating the changing nature of empires, the kind of world orders they create and projecting this knowledge into the future. McCoy’s latest book To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change, analyzes the rise and fall of empires through their geopolitics.

Can the liberal international order that the United States created during its 70 years as the world’s great hegemon survive? Will the rise of China displace the US? China is using the Belt and Road Initiative to break our economic dominance over Eurasia and if that happens, then it is almost as if by natural law, power and profit will flow to Beijing and China will become the epicenter of the global economy. Global accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that by 2030, China's economy will be 50% larger than the US economy. 

Jason Hartman and Alfred McCoy also discuss the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, China’s presence in Africa and the ramifications of climate change producing very serious problems for world order.
