Why The Fed Is Bad For America

Welcome back to Talking Stocks Over a Beer.

On today’s episode, I start off with my educational segment, where I discuss everything from last week’s stock market rally to the new steel tariffs to North Korea. I also answer one of the major questions I get from my listeners: what my process is for finding new investments.
