061 – Black Swan Events 

In this episode, KT discusses:

  • What Black Swan Events are and how they can affect the world.
  • How Mortgage Changing (mortgages changing hands from one bank/lender to another) has changed over the last 20 years.
  • How the 5 Black Swan Events of the last 20 years have changed how people spend money and invest.
  • Things KT sees as potential risks in the future.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you own something that’s worth less than what you paid for, you have two options: stay and pay or write it off and go.
  • Pay attention in the markets and world economy as it can and will affect you and your investments in some way.
  • Almost nobody will see Black Swan Events coming, and most of those that do will discount it until it’s too late. The future is anyone’s guess.
  • The economy is a cycle and it will change.

“Most Black Swans have an essence of greed.” – KT Thomas
