Eric Chats to Charles Thorngren, CEO of Legacy Precious Metals
"He's the CEO of legacy precious metals. And here he is, Charles Thornton, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric. Thanks for having me. Well, I know the basics, but I thought there was an article recently that I read where treasury secretary Janet Yellen was just talking about the economic chaos that lies ahead. I mean, I think most people know the economy is to use the technical term L stinko. And so, you know, your financial expert, how did we get to this place? And what can people do about it? Because people are asking me, and I don't have the answer. What should I invest in? It's a big question, but I think if we look and we really are honest about how we got here. It's several administrations worth of bad money management. We have run a deficit in this nation that's unsustainable for quite some time. And we've seen that become even hyper exaggerated with this new administration. With $9 trillion in debt, you put yourself in a situation where your dollar doesn't have the equity that it's supposed to. And ultimately, when we talk about our economy, we want to talk about the lives that we're living, how it affects us. The quality of our life. And that's what we lose by having a weakened dollar. We parlay that into our retirement accounts. And where we keep our money usually in the equities markets. The market is so over exaggerated in its value right now. From years and years of quantitative easing and free money and easy money that that has to come into play and be
Elon Musk Takes 9.2% Stake in Twitter, Stock Soars
"So the guy's got a big Twitter account, shall we say? It's good news for the company because it had sort of been, I think in some ways kind of left for dead. It hadn't figured out how to monetize its business in ways that were going to really help it going forward. It had grown users. I would say over the last three years, we saw an improvement in the user base. So that was good news, and it certainly a sticky platform, but you have to be able to do something with all of that, right? So you have all these people there, you're growing the user base, but there's lots of competitors out there, and if you're not able to properly monetize the company, then it becomes very challenging. Anyway, so he is tweeting over the last couple of weeks. Hey, you know, should there be another platform? Do you think that Twitter really embraces free speech? So we got everybody kind of worked up and then lo and behold, it turns out that it was, I believe, on March 14th, that he made the purchase. So that means that was what about two weeks ago? Shares are up 50% since then. I think he bought it for just about $3 billion. So he's made a pretty sum. The question is, does he continue to make money going forward? And my answer, my thought on that is, yes, I mean, maybe not this week. Maybe the stock settles down, but ultimately, if he can join the board and I would think that he would want to join the board and I would think that the board would actually want him on there. Then he's going to have a hand in helping this company sort of figure out its strategy going forward, which means one being all encompassing in terms of bringing as many people to the platform as possible and allowing a lot of different viewpoints on that platform, which may mean getting a new tech team in, frankly, to adjust the algorithms so that you're not squashing things needlessly. And then the other thing is once he's on the board, maybe he can think even about how the company incorporates, I don't know, say something like crypto in its future, right? He's a huge crypto enthusiast. So maybe there's a play in this Twitter space again as it comes to monetize its user base to incorporate crypto and then the other thing that I'd be thinking about and I know we don't necessarily want to think this maybe there's a play here to sell the company ultimately to a private equity firm or to maybe a bigger tech firm or hey, maybe even like a PayPal that would be able to work in some of that crypto stuff. Now I'm just talking theoretically and I want to get to ahead of ourselves because right now I think we should all be sort of excited. I'm excited. The Elon Musk is coming to Twitter because I see him as kind of well just a revolutionary. He's a smart, brilliant guy, irreverent guy. He recognizes the insanity that's out there right now. Hey, Jack Dorsey even recognizes it. In fact, he was quoted today as saying, you know, you feels bad that he's kind of created this very single lane platform where only one view is tolerated. So I think there's a real chance here to improve upon this and look, I mean, my answer to bad speech is always more speech. You need people to be able to speak freely. And so if you can create that platform there with Twitter, then that's really going to be a very, very good thing. So ultimately, I think for shareholders, they should be looking at this and just rejoicing. Of course, they probably are because the shares are up 30% right now. But long term, there may be some real upside in this company. I mentioned sort of inability for a lot of different voices to be heard. And it brings me to one of our sponsors of this program, which is a Mac, they are doing what they can, everything they can to make sure all voices are hurt, especially conservative voices. I mean, it seems like a lot of voices shall we say are protected, but not when it comes to conservatives. And this is why amac is out there, the association of mature American citizens is standing up for you, standing up for the future of America conservative voices there for mature Americans that believe in freedom. And all the freedom loving things in American so want and want to hold dear. There's 2.3 million members here that share your values my values and you know what you get all kinds of great discounts, all that good stuff. So travel, hotel, cell phone plans, insurance plans, just go to amac dot U.S. slash Regan, my last name, REG and you can sign up. It's only $16 a year and you're going to get all this free stuff. So it's really, really worth doing. You'll make it back in a day. I'm so glad to be able to tell you about it. I really think it's something you should look at. So again, amac dot U.S. slash vegan for your membership and take a stand there for America. I want to get to oil because oil is continuing to move higher in today's market and I don't think we've seen anything yet. I actually think that oil is going to get really, really high. We're looking at about a 101 $102 per barrel right now. And that's in part, it's been eased because the president came out and said he was releasing the strategic petroleum reserve over the course of the next 6 months, which would be a 180 million barrels that would be released into the oil supply, but I'm going to tell you this, it's not enough. It's not enough, and it's only 6 months, and we've got to figure out a better long-term solution here. Because we can't be dependent on the likes of Russia. I'm sorry, but this is truly awful what we're witnessing right now. And what came out over the weekend is devastating and you can look at it in many places. I don't even want to show you. The kind of thing that makes you sick to your stomach and you think how can a nation be so horrible so horrible to its neighbors so horrible to its brothers and sisters and cousins and we see Russia, Russia is clearly capable of some pretty horrific awful stuff. So let me reiterate. We don't want to be giving them any business. We don't want to be giving them any money any any trade whatsoever in light of everything that we have learned. It's time for the United States of America to be completely self reliant. That means natural gas can't be coming from Russia. By the way, not just us. The free world in general. All of Europe needs to say enough. Now, it's coming out, you know, in the last 24 hours, we've heard more and more that we're looking towards greater sanctions, the U.S. both and the Europeans together are looking to sanction more of Russia, but I just question why we haven't done this already. What are we waiting for? I mean, we should be doing everything we possibly can to give Ukraine the assistance it needs. And that means sanctions like Russia has never seen before, that means military equipment to aid the Ukrainians, that means intelligence gathering, helping them, however we can. There's a lot we can do without actually finding ourselves in a situation that would be World War three. But we can't sit back and pretend that none of this is happening. We can't sit back and allow a monster like Vladimir Putin to do what we've seen him do. Meanwhile, oil, that's why I say you haven't seen anything yet. I mean, if you want to, if you want to play this one, the commodities fund is the way to go because there's no way that oil is going to go down any time in the near future. In fact, as we go into summer months, I would anticipate it's going to go higher and higher and higher. The refining capacity changes in the summer and there's additional things that need to be done to the oil in order to get it into gas tanks. And so that's going to be problematic. It comes at the same time when you have in the in the driving season, right? Some are driving season and it's all happening as the entire world just reacts with horror to Russia. So as more and more people and more and more countries, hopefully more and more countries, I'd like to see more and more countries shut Russia off, that means less of a supply out there that would drive up of course the price of oil. So it's so important that we start thinking strategically about how we fix this. And I'm sorry. I realize everybody wants these EVs. It's not going to happen. Tomorrow. And we need help tomorrow. We need help very much in the near future. So whatever can be done, we need to have some adults in the room in terms of our energy policy to think through this so that the American people are not paying the price with $9 at the gas pumps because that's what we're going to be looking at. And the answer is not giving them $800 in Maine or $300 in in California or saying, okay, we're going to forgive the 25 cents per gallon tax in Connecticut. No. The answer is having a long-term plan, a real solution. To make sure that we have energy for as long as we need it. For as many people as we need it. And that means a multi prong approach. I mean, I just can't believe the stupidity of these administration that wants to sit there and keep telling us, you know why? Here's why. There's no leadership. Absolutely positively no leadership. These people are all worried about getting reelected, and they've convinced the world that climate change is the biggest problem out there. So how are they supposed to turn around and say, well, actually, it turns out that Russia's the biggest problem out there, and now it's compounded by the fact that our lives are going to be harder as Americans because oil prices gas prices, energy prices are all moving up up and away. This is just one massive mess and I hope I hope. There are some smarter heads that will prevail. Look, I think if not, we're very likely looking at a recession. I've told you that before, I think a recession is very much something that could be in the cards, only because you can't have $9 a gallon and not have some kind of effect. We're going to see because we're coming into mid April here, how this affects earnings. All the companies with their earnings reports are going to be coming out. We'll get a sense of whether or not the consumer really can withstand these higher energy prices. I don't think they can. I mean, look, I guess it's good because people are going back to work and so maybe they have a little bit more money, you're seeing that reflected in the unemployment rate, which continues to drop. The number of jobs added, which was more than expected, maybe people are going to have a little bit more cash on hand to pay for this higher oil, but look, I think there's a real risk that we're heading into a recession as a result of these higher energy prices, not that I would trade it. I mean, I actually think that, you know, you make choices in life and you make choices as a country, and sometimes you just need to stand up for what is right. And standing up for Ukraine is the right thing to do. I want to get to legacy precious metals that I told you about in the beginning of the show because with all the chaos in the world right now, probably saying, how do I how do I manage this if I'm trying to think about my retirement? How do I hedge out all this inflation? And one of the very best ways to do this time and time again is gold. I mean, I have believed that for decades now. And I've been proven right. It's not always perfect, right? There'll be times when maybe the market out performs gold, but then when the market's down, that gold comes in pretty handy. And right now we're looking at nearly $2000 an ounce, they're on gold. So this is an investment worth having. This is an investment worth holding. And my Friends over at legacy precious metals have been doing this for years for about 40 years. It's a family run business, and they can help you. So I want to give you their number one 8 6 6 5 8 9 zero 5 6 zero one 8 6 6 5 8 9 zero 5 6 zero legacy p.m. investments dot com Charles Thornton. He runs the company. He was just on the show the other day really wonderful group of people that can assist you as you try and figure out how you're going to hedge out your future. How you're going to hedge out inflation because you're getting it one way or the other. I mean, best case scenario, the fed gets two to 3% a year, right? But right now we're looking at 6.7%, 7.7 .9%. It's like sort of a dyslexic moment. 7.9% in terms of inflation. I think it's going to get far worse than that.
Why Joe Kent Felt Called to Run for Congress in Washington State
"If you live in Washington support this man Joe can't for Congress dot com that's Joe can't for Congress dot com 20 years serving this nation also his wife Shannon paid the ultimate price in Syria killed by the ISIS jihadists explain to us for millions of listeners across the nation. Why you've decided to not just have the quiet life you've bled enough for this nation? Why are you serving it again as a civilian Joe? You know, really, that's what I intended to do after my late wife was killed by resigned from government service and wanted to just come back here to home to the Pacific Northwest to raise my kids. But the way that the last election was stolen the way that the left weaponized all the violence of 2020 using antifa and BLM, I realized that our country was at war. It was just a war back here at home, and everything that I've seen since Biden was installed has really pointed to the fact that we are almost under totalitarian control and seeing how Republicans will not fight most Republicans or the rhinos will not fight. These are the same people that Thornton president Trump for his entire four years that really led to my wife being left in Syria after Trump tried to get us out. These people will not defend us. So when my representative Jamie hurry about their voted for the impeachment of president Trump, I knew that it wasn't a matter of, hey, is this the best thing for me to do right now? It was a matter of I'm being called to serve again to go and fight because this isn't politics as normal. We are at war and we need to be going to war against the left and against the rhinos.

'You're a Disgrace': Police Dispatcher Takes Aim at Mayor Lori Lightfoot
"There is a Chicago police ditch. This dispatcher excuse me. His name is Keith Thornton, not happy with Lori Lightfoot, who just last year transferred what was it about $80 million, $100 million, forget what it was. Out of the police budget for youth programs. And now, Lori Lightfoot wants to be tough on crime. Now she sounds like dirty Harry. Keith Thornton, Chicago, police dispatcher, not amused. It's a complete disaster. It's smoke and mirrors, guys. Smoke and mirrors. And I'm hot about it. Because this mayor does not care about Chicago police officers period. She doesn't care about any first responders. She doesn't care about the damn city. Doesn't matter if you're white, black, Asian, Hispanic, other, straight, gay, Democrat, or Republican. She don't even care about her city workers. All that lady cares about is a self. And I pray you're watching this. Because you're a disgrace. And I'm tired of it. And your city is tired of it. As a matter of fact, it's not your city. The city of Chicago is tired of it. And I know you don't like me. And that's okay. Because I love you. But I'm tired of you. 'cause you're an absolute disgrace to everyone within the city. She's taken away resources and manpower and saying you. You and your constituents. I'm not giving you the officers up there. Make them split them and make them 99 cars to go by themselves. And if something happens all going to news, several days later and act like I gave a and say, I'm sorry for the loss to this suction such family.

"And the part that jumped out at me was Brooke said the thing that bothered me the most was that Sean kind of indicated that he thought I was faking how hurt I was. And that really bothered me. So after I finished adding Brooks into the chapter and had talked to him for a long time and added it, I called Shawn back. And I said, I talked to Brooks. It was great. He's going to be in the chapter, but just so you know, he's really upset that you thought he was faking. And Sean got kind of quiet for him and he went holy bleep. That's not what I intended at all. He said, I got to call this guy. And he did. And I think those two kind of worked it out and took it from there. But it was an important part of the book for me. And I think it was an important part of the book for Sean as well. Yeah, again, because those guys trained together in the off season. That was not like two people who had never met. They were pretty much Friends. Prior to well, Brooks is one of those Boston guys. You know, and all the Boston based guys, they all trained together down at warrior, you know, they're all down there. If you go in the summer now, you know, all the bruins guys and all the other players in the league who are Boston based or Massachusetts, guys, they're all down. They're skating. Jack eichel was here last summer. Yeah, that helped fire up the rumors. So yeah, I love this book for a lot of reasons. It's funny you had told me, I think maybe the last time you were on, you teased that you were writing a book. And then when we finished up, I was like, let me guess who it is. And Jean Thornton was my first guess. I said I bet it's on Sean Thornton and you were like, yeah, because I think you teased like our broods fans will love this because they love this guy. And I was like, oh, Sean Thornton. So.

And my grandmother's name was also willie but also because up until a couple of years ago two or three years ago. I had never heard of big mama thornton. And that's a little shocking. Considering what she's best known for big mama thornton is best known for her recording of a twelve bar blues vocal given to her by songwriters. Jerry lieber and mike stiller. The tune was called hound. Dog hound dog with its openly. Sexual lyrics was a big hit when it was released in nineteen fifty three it topped the rb charts and it sold two million copies. Despite its success. Big mama thornton was paid only five hundred dollars three years later. Another version of hound dog was released and that version was recorded by elvis presley. That version brought him immeasurable. Fame and success and it is one of a laundry list of examples of black artists facing incredible inequity in all kinds of creative fields and industries. Despite that egregious blow big mama thornton had a long career and ended up dying in la in nineteen eighty four. At the age of fifty seven. She was inducted into the alabama music hall of fame. Her home state in twenty twenty. There is a video of big mama thornton singing hound dog on youtube. I ran across it three years ago. I believe in its footage from an atlanta based show that she performed on called the hot harlem review and i highly recommend you go and find it on youtube and watch it because it's amazing and she's amazing. I hope you enjoyed the segment until next time..

Kentucky's 'Cocaine Bear' reportedly will be subject of Universal Pictures movie with Elizabeth Banks
"There's a movie coming out called Cocaine Bear. And if the title sounds bizarre, it's nothing compared to what the story is actually about. So you might know who Elizabeth Banks is. She was in the hunger games, and she's been in a bunch of other movies, too. She is directing this movie called Cocaine Bear. Now, if you heard of a movie called Cooking there, you probably think it's on SciFi Channel alongside shark, NATO or movies like that Cocaine bear is actually a true story. It's a thriller based on back in 1985, a drug smuggler named Andrew Thornton. Dropped a duffel bag filled with £70 of Coke from his plane over Georgia on the way back from a drug run to Colombia. So he went down. Got the drugs. He's flying back. He found out that this plane was flying too heavy, so he had to push the cocaine off the flight. And when he did it landed in the woods. And I guess ah Bear found it much and ate the cocaine. No and died. Oh, no, but it's even weirder. So he was a former narcotics cop who started smuggling so he went to the dark side and the run that is in the movie is took place on September 11th Weird 1985. He dropped because it was too heavy for the plane. Some time after the Georgia dump. This guy tried to jump out of the plane as well. But as he was trying to jump out of the plane, he got caught in his parachute and fell like a stone landing in some guy's driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee. He died on impact. The plane crashed 60 miles away in North Carolina when his body was discovered he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Gucci loafers, night vision goggles. He had 15 million worth of Coke, 4500 and cash, gold, Krugerrands knives and two pistols. Wow. Holy crap. The body of the Bear was discovered three months later, along with 40 open plastic containers and cocaine residue. They think the bear ate the cocaine. And there's the end of the bear. And that's your
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is sentenced in Moscow to 3½ years in jail
"The last several weeks we've been talking about Alexei of all need russia and anti corruption activist. Opposition leader general thornton flattery. Putin side last august navalny was poisoned. He was nearly killed by putin's goons. He had to germany for treatment but decided to come back to moscow A few weeks ago where he was immediately arrested there were big protests over the weekend know today a russian court sentenced need to an additional two and a half years in prison for what was essentially a parole violation You know that this verdict is a joke because you know some of these alleged parole violations happened when vanni was recovering. Germany from being poisoned Near the end of the trial in the ball and denounce putin and said he will go down in history as vladimir the poisoner underpants the The recent east. That is the poison us against vol. Knee was reportedly put on his underwear. That's how they apply to him so as we were preparing to record hundreds of of riot. Police have filled up red square and other places in central moscow. Tony blinken. the secretary of state has called for nevada's immediate. and unconditional. release ben. This seems like a a big change in terms of how putin is dealing with navan. The this trial was like big and it was public Previously russian authorities hadn't punished to develop nearly a severely. He'd gotten house arrest. He'd gotten sure sentences but you know the thinking then seemed to be they didn't wanna martyr him Now he may be locked up for several years. I'm sure that biden's national security team is like debating all of this as we speak. What do you think. The range of options are here to respond. And like what are you. What do you recommend they do. Well you know. I think the sense Again is a human tragedy nevada other. He knew he knew the risks is taking and he may have wanted to force the issue And he's proven the massive support he has and i think this will only increase the support You know because people see that the unfairness and corruption of of this of this ruling. I think for biden again. It's related to what we said that he can't there's no action he can take right now. That's going to force russia to release alexi of only what he can do is shine. A spotlight never stopped talking about alexey navalny every single time that anything comes up with russia election of all these case should be front and center. The world's attention needs to stay on his case every single day that he's in prison. I think more importantly because people can talk about sanctions. But we've mentioned this on the show. Before what has alexei navalny really honed. In on that has resonated the russian public it is vladimir putin's corruption that video showed of this billion dollar palace that putin clearly felt like he got caught because he's been denying it and now they they tried some saying. Oh no it's my hotel when it's pretty obviously bodmer putin's billion dollar house that he goes to hang out and and i think what joe biden can do. In the biden administration is continued. The work that alexi only was doing an revealing vladimir putin's corruption in spotlighting that corruption in high leading for people. Just how much money this is worth. And where his money is and how his money flows through the financial
The Swedish Secret to Happy, Productive Work Days
"There's yet another scandinavian term. Making the trending rounds lately. This one has been around in some circles for a while. There even used to cafe in manhattan by this name that went to a few times. It's called fica f. i a and it's basically the swedish word for a coffee break but in practice means so much more quoting courts. The word fica is used both as a noun and a verb and is derived from the swedish word for coffey. A national obsession for the world's third largest coffee drinking nation unlike the american style. Caffeine jolt the swedish coffee break is a moment to literally leave work behind taken first around ten. Am and then at three pm. It's not a strategy for multitasking or for fitting in another mini meeting. It's a chance to relax in the company colleagues. The longstanding swedish social ritual doesn't necessarily even have to involve coffee. the key is to pause your day and quote. You can have your coffee or tea. Whatever your pleasure. And ideally you'd pair your beverage with a fresh baked good but the main point is to take a real actual break from work lars lund. Who owned that chain of fika coffee shops here in new york city told courts that taking a fica break two or three times a day makes them more productive and number of studies have backed this up. According again in two thousand ten grant thornton study found that swedish workers were the least stressed worldwide. Perhaps in part because we companies are experimenting with the six hour work day and made fica mandatory and even though only one percent of swedish employees work overtime according to the latest oecd better life index. They're not any less productive linkoping. university professor. Rebecca adult suard has studied the history of swedish social rituals and says breaks like fica may actually boost productivity studies. Show that people who take a break from the work don't do less. It's actually the opposite. Efficiency at work can benefit from these kinds of get togethers. She writes on her university blog. Her observations support a two thousand fourteen stanford university work productivity study that argues for capping the work week at fifty hours maximum and quotes and nyaka yano. The general design manager at moody says she noticed that swedish workers are exceptionally good at switching between relaxation and focus and within office space is the fact that the break is taken. Together across hierarchies putting all that aside for a few minutes can really help break down barriers and encourage healthy forms of bonding among colleagues. When i read about fika. I realized that i've kind of set my schedule up this way without meaning to i take a mid morning break to have a snack and coffee and pull myself away from the endless feeds and e mails. I'd been staring at all morning. And then i take another no screen break in the afternoon. Once this podcast goes up. of course. i'm not in an office. Space chatting with co workers and always manage to take both of those breaks every day. But that's the goal. And on the days that i do. There is a noticeable difference in my energy focus and overall contentment levels. Now i just need to get better about my baked goods game if you want to dive deeper into fica. There's a few books out there. One that kept popping up for me is actually a recipe book but it also includes a lot of information about the custom in how to adopt it in your own life. it's called fica. The art of the swedish coffee break by annaborough bonus and johanna pinball and the official sweden youtube account also produced a six part series on fica back in two thousand sixteen that you can watch to learn more about it links to both of those in the show notes

"thornton" Discussed on CXMH
"Yeah, we have I don't know we did not go to the lake that's for sure. That is okay. I feel like we are finding. Are distorted rhythm in this new semester in what this is looking like and I think I usually say that for like the first four weeks of every semester whenever we do these intros where I'm like we're finding our rhythm for like a month. Especially, right now, in the midst of everything, we are really are like it's it's been changing with having our kids doing online school and each week the teachers have been learning more and adapting and improving and just thinking of different ways to continue to connect with the kids and so that's been so awesome and we're just trying to kind of shifted adjusted in adapt with them and so on. So that's an interesting but. I mean we've been. By and I've also been trying to weave in some of the wisdom of our guest this week in. Some of her tips and advice in thoughts in. Just, a good work does should we? Bit about plus. Yeah absolutely. We were super excited to have Dr Amber Thornton Comeback on she actually came on the show years and years ago, which sounds weird to say how because sometimes after get how long that the show has existed but she came on back in twenty seventeen to talk about something kind of entirely different. But we brought her on this time because she has shifted kind of what she focuses on professionally and she has created a whole podcast, milligram and yeah. Called Balanced Working Mama where she helps working moms figure out. Okay. How am I really being balanced in my life kind of this holistic approach? How do I maintain being healthy in all the various ways that we talk about being healthy right and so it was really awesome to have her back on even if obviously you're not working mom like I am not right I still love the episode just hearing her wisdom. There's plenty that we could all apply but then also of I'm married to working mom or a lot of us no other working moms things like that and so. I think it was. It was it was great. Yeah. Yeah. I wholeheartedly agree I think it. There were a lot of takeaways from it.
"thornton" Discussed on WLAC
"This guy's got a probably have to talk down to us a little bit. We're gonna pretend we're smart, but he is a senior fellow at the von mises institute. So I don't know if he can. Are several mouse, MRs we don't know he might be able to answer that force. He's an economist with the Mesa's institute, and the author of the book the skyscraper curse. Dr Mark Mark Thornton. Mark Thornton is with us. Now, dr. Yes, go. It's great to be with you today. Thank you very much. So I have always been fascinated by the skyscraper curse. And it is. I've never really looked into it. Like, you did your book is absolutely fascinating. Can you explain what the theory is? I. Well, it basic theory is that when a record setting skyscraper is built anywhere in the world. By the time. It's completed in ready to open the world is going to be experiencing an economic crisis. And so the curse is the economic crisis. That is associated with the building of a record setting skyscraper. Now if I'm not mistaken. It was the Woolworth building around nineteen. What was it fourteen fifteen something like that? That did not did does not fall into that category. And that was the world's first real kind of skyscraper. Well, you know, we've been building to learn taller for about one hundred and fifty years and the skyscraper curse occurred earlier during the panic of nineteen o seven, but as the war building was being built, and it was being redesigned to go even higher to set the record. And then when it set the record in nineteen thirteen there was no economic crisis that followed and so. So the original architect of the skyscraper curse real estate analyst named Andrew Lawrence. He called the Woolworth building a mistake of the skyscraper curse. But when I went in and looked at the detailed statistics what I found is that the US economy was going into a severe recession of Justice. The war was being prepared to be opened in early nineteen fourteen. But what Andrew Lawrence forgot or just neglected was the fact that World War One was starting in Europe. And all of the major powers of the world. We're getting ready for a war and they were buying steel. They were buying green. They were buying weapons were buying materials. And so that reactivated the US economy and brought us out of what was one of the worst downturns in US economic history. Okay. So. Give me some because I think it's fascinating. The Chrysler building is completed there's actually two skyscrapers Donald Trump holds one of them. Now by Wall Street and the the Chrysler building completed we have the crash of twenty nine the Empire State buildings completed a year later in one thousand nine hundred thirty and we go into the depression. In. What was it nineteen seventy the World Trade Center? That's right. We were on a tremendous record breaking a business cycle, boom. During the nineteen sixties economists from the Keynesian school thought that they had been able to do away with the business cycle in business cycle courses were being taken out of the curriculum going into nineteen seventy as the world trade tower one and two were being built and rising in New York City soon to be followed by the Sears tower in Chicago. And what happened was just as all this grandeur and glory for the Keynesians was reaching the pinnacle, the US went into an economic crisis. We had the stagflation of nineteen seventy through nineteen eighty two. We had the US going off the gold standard things were so. Bad. We had wage and price controls being imposed by Richard Nixon nineteen seventy-one just as the trade towers were coming to a new record heights. And so that was a a spectacular. Menacing sort of example of why we shouldn't trust Keynesian economics. So before we get into what you know, what you see on the horizon what I really appreciated was the theory on why this is happening. Now, there's a there's another theory out there that like for instance, the Sears tower whenever you build a tower, and I I think again Woolworth was the exception to this. Whenever you whenever they build a record tower that company is at its peak. It's all downhill from from there, and you kind of can understand that because you're thinking, okay. Well, they're era Ghent now, but way, you look at the skyscraper. And the things that you say. Why this happens makes total sense? So can you explain your theory on why this is true? Why it happens? Well, you know, the people who build these buildings they may be irrigable in the arrogance may have risen as a result of the position that they've risen to. But basically the underlying cause of all this is cheap credit, low interest rates artificially, low interest rates from the central Bank or our Federal Reserve and those low interest rates in the short run caused people to invest more invested long-term projects invested in big spectacular projects because you know, the credit is cheap. They're making profits. Everybody seems to be doing well. And so the fed can create a rosy economic scenario in the short run, but what it's really doing this causing people to make the wrong investments in the economy to go beyond what would other wise be economically rational. And so the number one single. The number one price in any economy is the interest rate, and when the fed cooks the books, and reduces that interest rate for economic political or whatever reason they do it for if they do it too long, and too far ultimately they're going to create malinvestment or bad investments like record-setting skyscrapers, which otherwise would never have been built. So it's interesting it's not necessarily because it's the example of hubris or is certainly not the cause of the economic trouble is a symptom of something it's of somebody else's hubris. The the central banks that's interest. Dr Mark Thornton is gonna continue with us here in just a second the skyscraper curse. Now. Let's look at where we are today. And how does this play a role in? What does it say for our future? We'll do that in one minute..
