Everyone should be a hedge fund manager today, but this time it is for your own account. This time around, the benefits should flow to Main Street, and not just for Wall Street.
And here is the most shocking part – the poor man's hedge is rooted in an extremely accessible version of modern day, traditional homeownership. Or better still, other traditional forms of homeownership and select communities that you and your family and friends choose to invest in, non-traditionally. What I am talking about here is a fundamentally new era of wealth creation.
I fully understand that real estate, and specifically residential home ownership real estate, was at the very core of countless American families losing their shirts in the 2009-2013 economic crisis; but this is a bit of a ruse. That is not totally true. It wasn’t homeownership itself that killed homeownership ~ it was greed and abuse of homeownershipfinance; rules, rights and regulations.
