  1. Great video Basil … looking forward to part 2.

    I have been wondering when if ever debt is going to get more expensive at least in North America and the long term implications on the investment community. As you suggest there is lots of money looking for what could become a limited supply of “good” investment opportunities. IMHO the aging american population and demographics will play a significant role.
