Episode Description

Episode 1 starts the story of how the richest, smartest people in the world turned humanity’s most promising century into a chaotic mess that’s only going to get worse over the next decade. But there is opportunity for those who know where to look. And Episode 1 gives insight into that opportunity from an all-star lineup of some of the most seasoned and accomplished minds in the financial community, led by Addison Wiggin. 

The new normal is an economy that is fundamentally broken, one that can’t be fixed by an election, a vaccine, or a social movement. If you’re wondering how we rebuild from here, it’s time to radically adjust the way you think about investing, wealth preservation, and how you position the future of your family. But as you’ll see throughout this four-part miniseries, Addison and his star-studded list of authors, speakers, and financial experts, have a solution for you. And it all starts with Episode 1 of What Went Wrong with America.
