No One Knows What Happens Next & The Two Comma Club

After a brief hiatus, the boys are back and ready for the December 12-13 FOMC meeting results. They already know it's going to be a "pause," but Chris, Saied and Haroon predict what they think will be the rhetoric coming out of the meeting. More likely than not is a rally based on pure market optimism. The boys pivot to a thorough breakdown of the wealth stratification in America today because we have reached an alarming milestone. The top 1% of American earners now own more wealth than the entire middle class. Lastly, they round out the show with a discussion regarding the housing market and what lower rates could do to the economy while Larry Summers issues a sharp warning for the real estate entrepreneur bros.
