Tangent alert right off the bat! Coco must have been a cow in her past life because she moos like one!

Today, Jason welcomes economist Laurence Kotlikoff as they talk about the US government's $220 TRILLION debt, it's UNFUNDED mandates and the consequences it will have on our economy. Watch Jason's video interview HERE. But don't tell Laurence he went to a Trump rally in Mar-a-Lago, and that he got to shake hands with "the Donald!"

Jason then shares a chart showing the history of inflation rates versus mortgage rates.
