We have had a few crazy years.

I have been investing for a long time and I do not remember anything like it. The pandemic slashed the market by 20% in what seemed like minutes, then came back and took off just as quickly.

Bitcoin started 2020 around $ 7,000 and now it is around $ 50,000.

GameStop, one of many “memes stocks,” started around $ 15 this year, hit $ 350, and is now around $ 150 – well below the peak, but still up around 1000% for the year.

Even the housing market has gone crazy. Depending on where you live, it is possible that the value of your home has increased by 40% in a few years.

But good times can’t last forever.

Much of the asset inflation we’ve seen is due to historically low interest rates, and there’s a good chance the punch bowl will be withdrawn soon.

And that’s not the only risk we face. Unfortunately, there are plenty of other potential dark clouds on the horizon.

This is what “money!” from this week! podcast is on. We are going to talk about some economic risks that we may encounter in the coming year, not to alarm you, but to prepare and educate you. We will also talk about how to deal with any issues that may arise.

As usual, my co-host will be financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Newbie producer and investor Aaron Freeman listens and sometimes contributes.

Sit back, relax and listen to “Money! »From this week Podcast:
