In episode #2608, We discuss the expected increase in holiday spending despite concerns about a recession. We highlight the impact of inflation on consumer budgets and the potential consequences of high levels of debt. We also discuss the need for businesses and individuals to be more realistic about their financial expectations and the importance of discipline in the current economic climate. Our conversation concludes with a prediction that 2024 will be a year of reckoning for many as the effects of high-interest rates and economic realities become more apparent.
