Flipping America 317, 2019 Market Report

podcast 317 2019 Market Report

Thank you Kathy Curtis, and Happy-Merry-Yule-Hanna-Festi-Kwanz-Mas! We are continuing today with our shows to wrap up the year and look to the new year. Today I have a couple more lists for you – the top cities to invest in office space and the top 30 high-tech employment cities – also good places to invest in office space. 

The primary focus for today’s show is the Market. Today we are looking at the overall economy. We will consider 2019 and peek ahead to 2020, but no predictions until the prediction show, coming up in a week. Next time we are going to zero in on the housing market and look back and peek forward like we are doing with the economy today. 

To wrap up the year we are going to do the Crystal Ball show, where I make some predictions about 2020, and we will do the looking back, looking ahead show featuring some show guests from this past year.

Motivational Thoughts for the day

  • “It’s not the honors and the prizes and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls. It’s the knowing that we can be trusted, that we never have to fear the truth, that the bedrock of our very being is good stuff.” – Mr. Rogers
