Today’s show is a rebroadcast of a show that first aired in October, 2016. My guest is David Bond, who has a PhD in Economics from Yale University, and he makes a number of interesting points. We discuss the high level of Canadian household debt, and we talk about the most popular topic here on the podcast in the last year, and that’s the Canadian real estate market. Mr. Bond has some very definitive views on income inequality and taxation, and he has some thoughts on Basic Income. Mr. Bond points out that we must face the fact that we live in an economy that has cycles. A high household debt to income ratio (167.8% at the time of our podcast) puts both the individual, and our economy as a whole, at risk. If you lose your job, you may not be able to pay your debts. If too many people default on their debts, our financial institutions might go bankrupt. Tune in for Mr. Bond’s David's advice if you have debt and risk a job loss or income reduction.
