096: I was just offered a $500 million investment deal… and I worry it’s a sign the top is in

In today’s podcast, I share the details of a deal a well-known private bank just offered me (and its roster of other high-net worth clients).

It’s a bad deal in every way… the asset in question is valued insanely high, there’s likely a ton of debt attached to this deal and I doubt anyone who invests will make their money back.

Still, I’m confident this deal will get done. It’s classic top-of-the-cycle economics.

If you look back throughout history, during every boom, there’s one asset that gets insanely bubbly.

In the 90’s, it was tech stocks.

In the 2000’s, it was real estate.

And I tell you what that asset class is today… and why, just like every time in the past, this will end in recession.

I also looked back to see how long it takes for the economy to correct after the Fed starts raising interest rates.

You should listen in for the reveal… But I will tell you, the Fed started raising interest rates in December 2015. And, if history is any indicator, a recession could happen very, very soon.

Luckily, as an individual investor, you don’t have to participate in this madness. You’re allowed to wait it out on the sidelines.

Because better deals will be on the way. And you’ll have the opportunity to buy incredibly high-quality assets for pennies on the dollar.

That’s what I’m doing. And I share a few ideas toward the end of today’s discussion.
