Escape to the suburbs! Jason Hartman and Evan Moffic discuss the changes approaching in how we look at our homes. With the benefit of work and school being just a few feet away from our beds, we are all looking to improve our homes. And for those that are currently renting an apartment in the high-density, urban environments, a move in the direction of suburban-living is looking more and more promising. Homebuilders are saying that they are already seeing the effects of this growing trend. 

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are buying loans in forbearance and essentially they keep kicking the can down the road, delaying the inevitable.

Jason Hartman and Rabbi Evan Moffic talk about the big migration out of high density areas. Starting in 2016 a trend of moving to low density areas started to grow and the pandemic has encouraged the departure from more densely populated areas. While these trends may rely heavily on the wants and needs of Generation Z, health issues and worker experiences might speed up the migration. 

Key Takeaways:

[4:00] Pandemic proved how densely we are living, and also how successfully you can live working remotely

[7:00] Starting in 2016, a trend of non-metropolitan counties were gaining population more-so than metropolitan counties

[9:45] A lot of the migration trends could depend a lot on Generation Z

[13:00] What led you to believe that this mass migration to lower density living would occur?

[16:40] The average population density (APD) of the U.S.A. is only 87 people per square mile

[17:28] The APD of metropolitan areas of the U.S.A. is 283 people per square mile, and the APD of New York City is 27,000 people per square mile

[21:30] The rise of socialism 

[25:30] “Expansions make millionaires, recessions and depressions make billionaires”

[26:20] “In a recession or a depression, the person who wins is the person who loses the least”

Today, Rabbi Moffic discusses wealth in terms of freedom, independence, and the ability to live the kind of life that we’d like. Of course, we must learn to navigate challenging times. Rabbi Moffic reminds of the Hebrew scripture that says that God created the cure before the illness. He reminds us that humans are not a burden as some have thought but rather an asset, and capable of dealing with challenges beyond what we can imagine. 

[3:00] Why does God allow this disease, COVID-19, to spread around the world?

[4:45] God created the cure before the illness. 

[6:30] We figure out how to solve problems, we believe there is a solution.

[7:20] The error of the Malthusian sees human beings as a burden rather than an asset.
