Will the Fed Become President Trump's Next Punching Bag?

This week, Joe, Scarlet and Julie talked with Peter Conti-Brown, a Fed Historian at the Wharton School, about President Trump's break from precedent when he weighed into monetary policy, and why it's more important than it seems. Then Jens Nordvig, CEO and Founder of Exante Data, came on to discuss what we learned from Jerome Powell's two days of Congressional testimony, and why despite the flattening yield curve, he still sees plenty of stimulus coming down the pipeline. Terry Haines, Evercore ISI Senior Political Strategist, and Peter Tchir, Academy Securities Head of Macro Strategy, joined to have a trade war debate. Are markets being too complacent about tariffs or are they too glued to the headlines? Erika Nardini, CEO of Barstool Sports, also joined to talk about why the more than fifteen-year-old brand she runs is more like a two-year startup.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
