In today’s show, I’ve got a special interview that I’m sure you’re going to enjoy. 

More importantly, it’s one where I know you’re going to learn something that will help you as a businessperson, investor, or entrepreneur. 

If you’re a regular listener, you know that I enjoyed a 6-week cruise at the beginning of the year. 

And on that cruise, I befriended Lord Digby Jones, a politician who sits in the House of Lords in the UK and a renowned social commentator. I asked him to record a chat that we had in our cabin during the cruise, and that conversation is what you’ll hear today. 

What’s this got to do with property in Australia? 

The property market is significantly affected by the world’s economy.

His fact has become only too obvious in the last weeks.

So in today’s episode, you’ll hear Lord Digby Jones talk about some fundamental changes that he believes are going to happen over the next decade, and that you’ll need to understand if you want to be successful during that time. 

We’re going to chat about Brexit, the Asian century and what that means for Australia, the benefits and risks of social media coming in the next decade, the possibility of social upheaval over the next decade, and Lord Digby Jones’s advice to a young couple breaking away from the family business and starting off on their own – Harry and Meaghan. 

Some of the topics we discuss:

  • Whether the current pessimism is warranted
  • The opportunities coming from Southeast Asia
  • Trade wars on the horizon
  • The history of the growth of China and where China is going now
  • The hold that social media has over the public
  • Facebook’s responsibilities in regard to their platform
  • Political correctness on other social media platforms
  • What advice Lord Digby Jones would give to Harry and Meghan
  • Predictions for things we’ll be doing or thinking about differently by the end of the decade

Some of our favourite quotes from the show:

“There’s a lot of political correctness at the moment. In other venues, you can’t say the wrong thing without offending somebody.” – Michael Yardney

“That’s one of the areas where Australia is more fortunate. It has got strong migration, 66% of our population growth is coming from targeted migration of people of household formation age, skilled migrants and people coming in with business skills and business money.” – Michael Yardney

“I think the good news is we’re living in the best time in history in one of the best countries in the world. We’ve got a lot to look forward to.” – Michael Yardney
