Mountains Of Debt, Influencers Are Fake & Circle Of Trust

Dive into the financial deep end with Chris, Saied, and Haroon for episode 217 of The Higher Standard podcast where they slice through the week's money maze with sharp wit and wisdom. From the dizzying heights of household debt mountains—mortgages to credit cards—revealed by The Kobeissi Letter, to decoding the inflation crystal ball before the big CPI reveal of 2024, they've got you covered. Don't miss their take on TikTok's "get-rich-quick" gurus, where the math's as fuzzy as a two-dollar wig, and the Airbnb arbitrage scandal that's left investors with pockets emptier than a politician's promises. They are brining all the smoke and dropping names of some of the most cliché of “influencers.” It's all about keeping it real with laughs, insights, and advice that could just save your financial bacon. Tune in for a rollercoaster ride through the money matters that matter!
