We're headed for a financial crisis that's even worse than the 1970's, says 'Dr. Doom.' No, not the comic book character, economist Nouriel Roubini, known for his bearish prognostications. He believes that due to a rolling series of supply shocks, we'll have a severe downturn before we get relief from inflation.

In today's episode of The Higher Standard, Chris and Saied dive into this dire prediction and offer some of their own thoughts as well.

They discuss the debt crisis, which they refer to as an 'affordability crisis,' how it will continue to affect us all as consumers as we move deeper into the recession.

Chris and Saied look at a chart from Fortune magazine showing plunging house prices in 51 out of 60 major cities, such as San Jose, Boston and Seattle, with the west being hit hardest of all.

They discuss why the belief that rates will go down as fast as they went up is flawed, owing to banks attempting to protect their returns as rates drop.

Chris and Saied also look at a recent article from Bloomberg stating that rent gains are finally starting to slow in many parts of the US, cooling a years-long boom that sapped affordability from coast to coast. In other words, demand from tenants is suddenly sinking.

Join Chris and Saied for this fascinating conversation.
