People have been investing during a recession before. It’s a proven fact. During a recession, when the economy is going down the tubes, people do desperate things.
Here's the Video Transcript:
And that’s the point. You can see it on the faces of the professionals who were the great sufferers during the previous recession. In their eyes, they got out of it a lot easier than most others, who were in the depths of it. And this is because they had strong skills and methods that allowed them to recover much faster than the average person.
The person who best describes what you can expect during a recession is the man who was running the NFL when the NFL went to Dallas before the pre-recession days. Now, there is a high level of risk involved. But the fact remains, that in a recession, it’s much easier to have enough money to afford your losses than it is during a boom where the money was limitless.
Unfortunately, a lot of people just give up. They’re not dedicated enough to continue building their investments, even if they’ve been burned in the past.
This is especially true for people who don’t believe in the stock market, so they don’t look into it, but instead look at different things. It’s like reading all about how to be successful at business, or even how to put your kids through college, but never actually start up a business.
They are afraid of investing, because they don’t know how they’ll be affected by this market. They just wish that their money would just show up one day and magically bring everything in order. And that doesn’t happen.
There’s no way of knowing what will happen in a year from now. At least not until the economy goes back up, and you start to see your investments working. Some people will actually make a fortune in a downturn. And other people are going to lose everything.
The great thing about investing during a recession is that your investments are more likely to grow than you will be losing them. This makes things much easier for you to handle. Your capital will grow, and your money will make it through the times when there isn’t so much money for you to spend.
Because of this, you won’t run out of money because of inflation. Instead, you’ll be able to live a comfortable life, without too much stress.
A great way to make money in a downturn is to invest in housing. This is a good investment because it never has a reason to go down. If you buy homes during a period of economic turmoil, you’re probably going to have a better time of it than a buyer who waits around until things get better.
With real estate, you can expect a lot of growth, because housing values always go up. So even if the housing values drop during a period of economic turmoil, you’ll still have a lot of money to invest.
The only problem with investing during a recession is that you’re not going to be able to earn as much money as you would if you were making money, because you’re not spending a lot of money. What’s more, the market will reflect this, as it should.
