“That is life’s most important question as I always like to say – “compared to what?” is the question we always need to be asking ourselves and it really boils down to that idea of TINA. An acronym, TINA, There Is No Alternative.”
“What’s not on this chart is cash and it’s funny that people don’t consider that an investment.”
“As I always say, whenever you hold an asset, every day that goes by that you don’t sell that asset, you’re basically buying it from yourself. So, if you’re holding cash, you are losing at the rate of inflation.”
“All of the would-be first-time buyers, this giant millennial and gen z generation, they’re not gonna be buying houses. They’re gonna be renting.”
“It’s actually worse than it sounds because while interest rates are going up rapidly in the United States, remember, they can’t go up as rapidly everywhere else.”
“Finances in Germany are relatively liberalized, so the people can get their money out to secret places.”
