Before our PA Governor-appointed public official guest joins us, I discuss how autonomous cars expect to change real estate.
Richard Vague, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Banking and Securities from 2020-2023 joins us. We’re in the state capital of Harrisburg, PA.
We discuss America’s beginnings in real estate and banking from around 1800.
He tells us about the health of banks in the wake of recent failures due to higher interest rates.
I ask Richard about full reserve banks vs. fractional lending banks.
Great Britain prohibited colonists from owning land west of the Appalachians.

Inflation benefits the Top 10% of the economic strata.
Private debt becomes unsustainable around 225% of GDP. In the US, it’s currently 160%.
