Rap explaining currency- why Realtors must understand

In our world, the old adage “real estate makes the world go around” is paramount, especially as the flailing housing sector continues to parallel unemployment rates in America, weighing down a struggling economy.

But real estate is only one of two things that make the world go around- currency rates is the other world spinner.

    Japan was gonna own us too. The only real difference now is the intensity. We win, but it’ll be like the Thrilla in Manilla. Both fighters resolved never ever to fight again.
