Before the age of social media and the internet, information about the economy flowed slower and people still had time to panic. Today, people still panic. But the panic sets in faster and they react quicker –– right at the snap of their finger as they scroll online.

Wall Street believes there’s only a 50 percent chance of a recession. And if that recession takes place, it would be in 2023, a short and shallow one. We completely disagree.

Which scenario is real, which is false? A) Meme stocks like GameStop and AMC are currently outperforming the market substantially. B) A leading actor slapped a comedian on stage, on live TV, and won his first ever Oscar Award on that same stage not long afterwards. Trick question, both events are real. We may be living in a very unpredictable world, but we’re able to at least predict what the news you’re reading looks like.  If the headlines haven’t been completely overtaken by the entertainment industry’s latest moment, they probably  contain the word or at least imply recession. This week, Mark, Derek, and Luke come prepared with the latest, most gravitating topics that are hard to ignore by anyone who keeps up with the news or indulges in social media.

President Biden’s Tuesday night State of the Union Address was an hour-long event of “politics as usual.” He spoke roughly over 6,400 words –– but we want to pay attention to the words he didn’t say and the issues he didn’t address. Although at least 20 minutes of the speech were filled with applause lines, it didn’t distract the guys from what was missing: tangible solutions to inflation, plans on energy independency, and accountability. In this week’s episode of “The Capitalist Investor,” Mark, Derek, and Luke deconstruct Biden’s State of the Union to analyze the probability of issues actually being addressed and treated by this current administration.

It’s hard to get away from politics; it’s within our music, media, sports, money –– politics drives everything. From Neil Young’s crusade against Spotify and Joe Rogan to Joe Biden’s pointless remarks on reporters, Derek and Luke reveal that there’s no shortage of political discourse that makes us reflect on the world we live in.
