The second half is about how to achieve financial independence through Withrow’s method of real estate investing. WIthrow makes the case that the days of “easy money,” i.e., zero or near-zero interest rate policies, are over, as global interest rates move to “more normal” historical amount. Occasionally leaning on theories from the Austrian School of Economics, Withrow provides a good, common-sense approach to running a successful real estate business, covering such aspects as the risks involved in renting, buying, selling and borrowing. He emphasizes the importance of assembling your “team,” the intricacies of insurance, and the various business structures from which one can run a real estate company. The advice is sound and actionable.
Tha alarmed and alarming open section, devoted to “deep state” theories and events beyond the average citizen’s control, ranges over a great many topics and personalities, sounding familiar but heated warnings of the coming destruction of individuals’ rights but without presenting much in the way of evidence. Finally, the book closes with a pitch to join Withrow’s organization, The Phoenician League, where he offers to “walk with you every step of the way,” on the journey to financial independence. The bottom line, whether readers buy the “silent coup” or not: real estate success is no different from any other business—it’s hard work.
