In this episode of The Lion’s Den, host Terry Sawchuk, founder and chairman of Sawchuk Wealth, interviews Paul Hodges, chairman of New Normal Consulting, from the U.K. to help U.S. investors gain a third-party perspective on our markets and economy. As a trusted expert who provides economic guidance to the World Economic Forum, Hodges understands how demographics influence the markets over the long run, which is something we believe many investors overlook but should be aware of.

Some of the topics Sawchuk and Hodges discuss during this conversation include:

  • The current state of the global equity markets and where they may be headed
  • How changes in populations and demographics impact the markets and economy
  • Potential ways for the U.S. to earn enough capital for our spending without raising taxes
  • How inflation shifts government policies and consumer perspectives
  • Effects the labor crisis may, or may not, have on the markets
  • Thoughts on Tesla’s market performance and the future of the automotive industry
  • Whether or not we are in the midst of a financial cold war with Russia and China
  • The risks and potential solutions if China and the U.S. cut off economic ties
