Episode Description

You can never know what tomorrow’s news will bring. And while we never know exactly what will happen, we do know how people in power will react to it. They are, after all, just people. And if you can know what people in power are likely to do, you can at least protect yourself…and possibly make a lot of money too. That’s what Episode 3 of What Went Wrong with America from The Wiggin Sessions examines.

History is filled with patterns. While the names may change, the story repeats over and over again. And if you can identify the right pattern, you can identify what will happen next. Episode 3 is a roundtable debate focused on the money disaster already underway in America and how investors can protect themselves and even capitalize on the crisis, and should be watched by all Americans as soon as possible.
