Dave (00:41 ):







All right folks, welcome to Investing for Beginners

podcast. Tonight Andrew and I have been talking, and he thought we would do it

all basics of the economy. So we haven’t taught, we’ve touched a little bit on

economics in the past, and we thought maybe this would be a good time

considering everything that’s going on with the economy in the world that

there’s going to be some dues of different things happening over the next six
