Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Jason discusses the impact of national debt on economic debates between inflation and deflation and its role in wealth redistribution. He highlighted the potential value of war due to rebuilding and defense contractors, and emphasized the importance of a commodities investing strategy when dealing with natural disasters or wars. He also talks about the potential for a Federal Reserve pivot in response to economic concerns, which could lead to lower mortgage rates and interest rates. He argues that national debt might not be as significant as commonly thought, citing the "frog in warm water" example. He then invites his listeners to join the Empowered Investor Pro group. 

Then Jason welcomes Richard Vague as he discusses the relationship between government debt and inflation. He presents empirical evidence that challenges the commonly held belief that government debt always leads to inflation. Vague argues that historical data shows that inflation is often caused by supply constraints, such as during times of war or other disruptions, rather than simply by an increase in government debt.

He also points out that monetary systems have evolved over time, and there have been periods in history where there was no central bank or even a national currency, yet inflation was not rampant. Vague suggests that the supply of currency is elastic and that significant over-issuance is required to trigger inflation.

Overall, Vague's argument is based on historical data and challenges the traditional view that government debt is a direct cause of inflation. He emphasizes that the relationship between government debt and inflation is more complex and nuanced than commonly believed.
