Originally aired on CW 512.

Jason invites his top investment counselor, Sara, to the show. Jason and Sara share their thoughts on the Memphis market and what potential investors might expect. Sara also lists the importance of having the right mindset when investing in a C property and Jason gives a break down on the price ranges of A, B, and C class properties on the show.

Jason welcomes Economist Mike Norman to the show to discuss Modern Monetary Theory or MMT. Mike shares examples of common misconceptions people have of the US monetary system and economy, such as the US debt clock, that inflation equals growth and how the tax system works. He believes that the US has an unlimited supply of capital and balancing the budget or functioning as a fixed monetary system would accomplish the opposite of what is needed to create growth. And, Jason announces the winner of the Amazon Echo raffle.
