The Fed’s Wrong, No China Deal, and Stupid Healthcare Expenses

We’ve got another new FarrCast for you tonight! The markets surged today and we are within 1% of all-time highs. The situation is so desperate that the markets need the Fed to step in to prop the markets up. Well, that doesn’t make sense when you say it out loud, but Michael does his best to explain that what the markets want might not be what the economy needs.

Dan Mahaffee joins us to explain the third rail of Beijing politics. It’s been a remarkable week in Hong Kong, and the situation has ramifications beyond the port, and indeed beyond China as well.

Our special guest tonight is Richard Thompson, one of the leading experts on pharmaceutical policy in the US. He begins by explaining how the trade fight impacts drug prices (it does!) Pharma regulation is a tangled web and is littered with policies that had unintended consequences both for medicine and for the economy. Dick helps to untangle and give us a clearer picture of the issues that impact the economy, the markets, your wallet, and everyone’s health.
