I gave an interview to Aaron from the "In The Rabbit Hole" podcast, a modern preparedness podcast. It was published on November 12, 2018.
Preppers love to discuss many things: Guns, food storage, knives, bushcraft skills, and a litany of other topics. These topics are chewed, debated, and deliberated about endlessly amongst preppers.
But personal finance does not get much love, unfortunately. It’s not surprising, though. Most people would rather discuss… um… adult relations at the dinner instead of money–an odd taboo, really.
At its core, money is an omni-tool; it can be turned into nearly anything else needed. And a healthy personal financial standing is the most likely position from which to best safeguard your families well being.
On Episode 466 of Radical Personal Finance, I discussed the idea of the US Government's certain default on its stated obligations and commitments by referencing Professor Lawrence Kotlikoff's Congressional testimony on this subject.
After that show, my friend David Stein (host of Money for the Rest of Us) emailed me to tell me that I was wrong. :)
So, I invited him on the show to debate it with me.
If you want happy-go-lucky, unicorns-and-balloons-in-the-sky Joshua, skip today's show.
If you want angry Joshua to opine on his disgust with the US American politicians' lack of fiscal restraint and the long-term catastrophe that is the US American budget, then you'll enjoy today's show.
