“We’re living through a time in history that’s proving to us how important price signal is and price discovery, and they’ve completely gotten rid of the most important price of all – the price of money.”
“My point is that it is true for an American investor, if you got a treasury, you are losing to inflation. But if you have that geo-arbitrage, you can set it up to where you’re actually experiencing deflation.”
“What they do is they make it more difficult to qualify, so you really can’t get it. It looks great if you can get it.”
“I think we’re going into a time, at least over the next year, where it’s more so about capital preservation as opposed to appreciation.”
“People’s checking accounts are still a lot higher today than they were in 2018. The problem there is that their incomes have not gone up with the rate of inflation.”
“Another thing that’s interesting about interest rates going up, is it gives large pools of money and options they haven’t had in a decade.”
“Sometimes, the return of your capital is more important than the return on your capital.”
