Salaams fellow Khan. Top marks for the presentation[s] and analysis. 2 things: firstly, the rent model is based on receiving interest and using it as collateral; this is not in line with some people's ethics, values and belief systems. Second, as you point out, nothing in reality is linear~there are variables on top of variables, so for the most part, one can never guarantee an outcome of one type or another. As long as the basic principle of "not spending anything that you don't have" is maintained, people ought to relax about the issue and live according to their preferred choice. If de-appreciation, unemployment or relocation don't get a person then ill-health might. So go with what your gut tells you and make the best of the situation in either case. God bless all.

Grace love it ,

Love your videos!

Invaluable and free.

These podcast really are a treasure. The current financial tumult and its precursors are broken down and explained in a way that is at once both comprehensive and easy to understand. Things like this should be on national T.V.
