009 The all new, horrific mortgage meltdown & how it will affect you; Matt Weidner explains the national foreclosure freeze
October 06, 2010 10:01 PM PDT

Have you heard about the new "robo-signing" mortgage scandal? Host Jay Carter thinks the story is huge - bigger than the media is letting on. In fact, the whole debacle has all the elements to possibly blow up into a national financial crisis. In this episode, we first listen to a CNBC news clip that helps explain just what's going on here. Then, Jay talks to Florida attorney Matthew Weidner of http://www.MattWeidnerLaw.com for a first-hand report from ground zero of the foreclosure crisis. Even if you own your home outright with no mortgage and even if you don't own a home at all, this crisis could affect you in some way, an idea Jay explores in this latest episode of the Financial Survival Podcast.

006 James Howard Kunstler: Don't Buy in Dallas or Atlanta; Plus, what the coming "Long Emergency" means for rental property investors
September 15, 2010 10:01 PM PDT

Today we have a fascinating discussion with author James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency, The Geography of Nowhere and the novel World Made by Hand.   His latest book is a sequel to World Made by Hand titled, The Witch of Hebron.

What kind of rental investments will work best in the future?  Kunstler envisions a future where the middle class essentially disappears due to an economic collapse and a depletion of oil supplies.

Of all his great books, I'd have to say Kunstler's The Geography of Nowhere really made an impact on me as an investor.  The book laid out a compelling case against suburbia, and why that kind of living arrangement simply has no future.  Kunstler's extensive research and compelling arguments helped me become much clearer about what kind of real estate will have a bright future - and why.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about investing in rental property on a big and long-term scale.  Hands-down, The Geography of Nowhere is a must-read for rental property investors.

September 02, 2010 12:00 AM PDT

You MUST hear this if you have an IRA or 401K! Today we have a thought-provoking discussion with Tom Wheelwright, a CPA and financial advisor at Pro Vision Wealth Strategists based in Phoenix, AZ. Tom has some rather strong views about the viability of IRA's and 401K's as wealth-building vehicles. When is it a good idea to just close out the account and take the tax hit? Tom's answer might surprise you. Also, Jay's back from working on one of his properties in Louisiana and is noticing something important about the rental market both there and back home in Austin, Texas.
