Israel … Ukraine … a presidential election … inflation … possible recession. There’s a lot going on that could affect the global economy, as well as your personal economy.
In this podcast episode, we predict what will happen to your money in 2024.
It’s always dangerous to make predictions, but we’re going to do it anyway, as we have for decades here at Money Talks News.
Today, we will focus on three main areas: the stock market, the housing market and interest rates. We’ll also discuss whether or when we expect to see a recession.
In addition to predicting what’s ahead, we’re going to make suggestions on what you should be doing now to prepare.
Host Stacy Johnson is joined by financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Listening in and sometimes contributing is producer Aaron Freeman. This week our special guest is Marc Lieberman, the founder of Shorepine Wealth Management. Friend of the show Pam Krueger from Wealthramp is also joining us to talk about what’s next.
Before you listen, remember: This isn’t financial advice. So make sure to do your own research and consult your own experts before acting on anything you learn here.
