Jason Hartman discusses some key aspects for real estate investors. One of the most important, and most visible, components of investing is interest rates, and there are some absolutely critical things you need to remember about them. Interest rates impact real estate supply and demand, and home affordability. People buy homes based on payments, not price, and mortgage rates impact those dramatically.
Jason also looks at why some libertarians just don't pay attention to an economic reality and gives a big announcement about the Creating Wealth seminar in Philadelphia in May.

Jason Hartman breaks down some important topics in today's show as he talks about one of the vital assets you have in your toolkit, and that's your credit score. With so many different companies and credit scoring models, it's key that you understand what impacts your score. You need to stay on top of it (and make sure it doesn't get TOO high because then you're not doing enough of what Jason thinks you should be doing).
Jason also looks into what kind of a job the Fed has been doing on their charter, opposition to Amazon, Google and Facebook, the myth of the Rented Home purchase, and some interesting results from his recent DNA test.

[13:43] If your credit score is too high you might not be borrowing enough money (but don't borrow for frivolous purposes, borrow for properties)
[17:45] A rundown on a few FICO scoring models
[21:54] Do millennials really understand inflation?
