A Real Economist – an Interview with Charlie Sauer- Ep. 692

Today’s show rundown:

FAA grounds west coast airports for 7 mins due to potential N. Korea Ballistic missile test into the Pacific Ocean. We hear nothing of this on mainstream media. We have the least transparent government since the 30’s. Things like this happen and we don’t even get to hear about it or the why’s or how’s?

According to Joe Biden, our Guest today must not be a real economist. Charlie Sauer explains some of the truths behind what is being done by our current administration to, as Biden calls it – Big Beef. We are being told that Biden is taking care of things. What we really have is a symptom being addressed and not the problem. Given the current economy and our court system, big beef just makes sense. Biden plans to throw money at this problem which just hurts the competition and the people.

How much money do you need in savings for you to retire comfortable? Almost 1 million was the answer in the 80’s. In 2021 that number dropped to 600K. Are Americans just changing their requirements for living comfortably? IS this related to the market, or where we weren’t in a high spending place? People may be spending down their savings they gained over COVID.
