The world, economy and markets are constantly evolving. Now over the next decade, after the pandemic and with mounting geopolitical issues, it will change more than many investors can imagine. The Steve Gruber Show spoke with Terry Sawchuk, founder and chairman of Sawchuk Wealth, to learn more.
“I think technology has the ability to make our lives awesome. But unfortunately, right now, what we are dealing with is a little bit different,” says Sawchuk. “I believe now, going back to 2020, the world changed forever and it’s never going back to the way it was.”
One specific area Sawchuk believes will change is the level of control the government has over investors’ capital, potentially by creating government-backed cryptocurrencies.
“I think they want that type of control. It’s really hard to move billions of dollars of cash but it’s not that hard if you control the digital aspect of it,” he explains. “It gives them not only the ability to monitor people but also gives them the ability to control behavior.”
It’s not only the government that has the potential to control investors but companies as well.
“Believe it or not, the popularity of index funds has given companies like BlackRock and Vanguard power you cannot imagine because every employee that is in a 401(k) plan basically is told that they should put their money inside an index fund,” says Sawchuk.
