EP 017: The Lies About Inflation and How It Impacts Your Life

Can you believe it…

Once upon a time doctors used to think smoking was good for you?

They also used to think that eating fat was incredibly bad for you and eating a diet super high in carbohydrates was the answer.

Now, this one is hard to believe…but it’s real

In the 50’s meth was prescribed to housewives who wanted more energy

Do I even dare mention the rise of petrol at this point?


Inflation is one of the core wealth concepts you need to understand and master if you are ever going to be successful at building wealth.
