Show Notes

Hello Business Class Listeners and thank you for tuning into Wisco Weekly, and our latest season of the podcast. When I first started Wisco Weekly, I discussed primarily dealership customer experiences…maybe you were a car buyer and wanted to know better about buying or working with your local dealer, or perhaps you were the seller and wanted to better your processes to optimize the customer experience.
 
Then as the audience grew and my network grew, I became more interested in the mobility space. Whether it was ridesharing, robo taxis, to policies that regulated micro mobility or to concepts like universal basic mobility, there was an entire subject matter I was unfamiliar with.
 
Now, we are at the next evolvement and this season is titled “Not Your Father’s Economy” and this season is a tribute to my father. You see my father is a first generation immigrant who knew nothing about the American way of life. He emigrated to the U.S. with the hope of creating a life that was not possible in the Philippines. The life he was aspiring can simply be put in a two-word caption -- "income opportunity." And starting in the 1970s, he became the best student he could be when learning about what it takes to create individual prosperity from working hard, working multiple jobs, being frugal, and also investing. And it’s in the area of investing where he really accelerated his income and wealth creation. As a child growing up, I bore witness to all of this and I recall every morning he would read the Investor’s Business Daily paper and review all stocks available to invest in.
 
Fast forward to 2021, this economy that we are in is much different than my father’s economy. Household debt is way up, borrowing is way up, the ability to make money is exponentially more advantageous now than ever before, there are more 1099 workers than ever before, there is more regulation than ever before…this is not my father’s economy.
 
While this latest season of Wisco Weekly is entitled Not Your Father’s Economy, this is the same title given to a brand new podcast channel which now hosts Wisco Weekly. 
 
Not Your Father’s Economy (NYFE) podcast channel, which is available on Apple Podcasts only, merges the advice given by fathers with the digital nomad economy. The income opportunities available in today's connected world have unlocked an economy that our father's never knew possible. From digital content creators to remote contracting work to the increase in the money supply and beyond, NYFE provides the necessary context to navigate this new economy and apply an immigrant father's advice.
 
To this end, I will be adding more shows to the NYFE podcast channel network. You’ll get to hear more thoughts, analysis, and entertainment of navigating this new economy. AND…I hope you will consider supporting the show by becoming a paid NYFE subscriber.

Senior Mobility and SB50 with Rudy Salo

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] For aging Americans, one of the most pressing concerns when it comes to their autonomy is transportation. But is this a mobility, economic, or social issue? Or a combination of all three? In this episode, Dennis Wisco and Rudy Salo address the biggest problems faced by senior citizens on the move, like LAX-it, rent spikes in transit-oriented development areas, and how "Dial-A-Ride" senior ridesharing paved the way for today's most popular taxi alternatives. "Freedom is Movement. Can I go from here to there safely? That's it. That's freedom." - Rudy Salo Every year, over 600,000 seniors are forced to give up their driver's licenses. This can be attributed to a variety of factors, the frontrunner being that many seniors age out of eligibility for insurance coverage. This decreased autonomy in movement prompts many seniors to consider relocating to senior living communities, or cities. However, even after a decade of public transit development initiatives, LA's public transit system remains largely inaccessible to the community members who need it most. As the "Baby Boomer" generation comes into retirement age, the concerns of seniors are projected to shape the business models for the mobility of people and goods for the future more than ever before. Tune in to this episode to hear how policies like California S.B. 50, accessible metro stations, and autonomous vehicles are opening doors for seniors on the move.
