Carol Roth, "recovering" investment banker and entrepreneur, sits down with Bridget for a terrifying conversation about hitting an inflection point where the global financial world order is changing. They talk about the WEF's 8 Predictions for the World in 2030, one of them being "you'll own nothing, and be happy," why Carol rages against this idea because wealth comes from ownership, defining the "they" in the conversation about who wants you to own nothing, when the US will no longer be the world’s sole superpower, other countries getting away from the stronghold of the dollar, who the emerging powers are, and what a potential new world order might look like. They also cover why the people in finance don’t want you to understand it and how they make it opaque and complex on purpose, what we don’t understand about wanting the government going after billionaires, how big tech companies have become essentially de facto governments that you don’t have any rights with because they’re “private companies,” why it's essential that we realize the stakes are shifting and come to terms with it, what people can do to protect themselves and how to set yourself up for success. Check out Carol's book You Will Own Nothing: Your War with a New Financial World Order and How to Fight Back , for the information and tools you'll need.

Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all.
