Investor’s Edge with Gary Kaltbaum


SURFSIDE, FLORIDA - JUNE 14: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks during a press conference at the Shul of Bal Harbour on June 14, 2021 in Surfside, Florida.

Recent news has put Floridians on edge, and that is the cost of living in Florida is now the worst in the country. Governor Desantis has made Florida a hotspot for people to enjoy what the state offers. People have left in mast droves. The lack of options has increased the demand, and therefore costs have gone up. The Commissioner of Agriculture and gubernatorial candidate hopes to take on Ron Desantis, Nikki Fried has attempted another attack on him.

Fried claims she will expose Ron Desantis’ failures to even Fox News that he has failed Floridians in a recent tweet. She looks to the cost of the major Metros that have historically been expensive to live in. She labels this as a “state of emergency.” She believes it’s not due to inflation but Desantis and his current war with Disney.

Many people are arguing that Desantis is worried about the cost of housing as he recently called for a special session to address the increasing rates of Homeowner Insurance. Another complaint is that Florida is not like the major Democrat strongholds of California and New York is that there are no liberal policies that have created this issue. This is due indirect to the success of Florida in the last couple of years which makes it the target of out-of-state residents.
