AJ Osborne Podcast

The Current State of the US Economy & What We Need to Understand

April 22, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne podcast! I’m your host AJ Osborne.

 

If you follow me on social media you may have noticed these past couple weeks, I’ve been posting quite a bit on the current economic events happening here in our country. What we’re seeing is honestly unprecedented and in our country’s history we haven’t seen or experienced quite what we are today. That said, I’ve been thinking, and reading about this… A LOT… and I have some things to share that I think can shed some light.

 

The fact is, we’re seeing massive government intervention. This is diluting the economic fundamentals of this country and the very systems we run on. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a huge importance that needs to be placed on monetary policy and reasonable inflation is actually a good thing (more on this in the podcast). What causes issues is when the very systems we’ve created to help our economy actually end up being used in such a way that actually start to hurt our economy.

 

I today’s podcast I break everything down. I talk about the good and bad regarding inflation, supply and demand in the market place and its relation to the value of the USD, examples from the past that we can learn from and apply today, the fundamentals of value creation, and the importance of truly understanding value. These are all great topics to discuss, but most importantly, I propose the one question we all need to be asking, when the right time is to buy assets, and how all these subjects are connected and are working together like a large spider web, and also how all of this ties into the very reason that I started my holdings company and structured my investing the way that I have.

 

I don’t have all the answers and I’m not going to pretend like I do. I do however believe that the more of us that truly understand our economy and the drivers affecting that economy, the better off the world will be. And honestly… I can nerd out on this stuff all day lol.

 

Thanks for listening everybody and enjoy!

AJ
