Wall St. For Main St., Released on 4/10/20
During this 40+ minute interview and back and forth discussion, Jason asks Danielle about all of the different bailouts and rules changes that have already happened in the last 4-5 weeks. Danielle says that the Fed has at least 40 different programs currently running, including many with extremely questionable legality. Jason also asks Danielle about Fed special purpose vehicles (SPVs), the Dollar Index, the Dollar Shortage, credit ratings downgrades, commercial real estate, gold, the oil market and pension funds. Danielle is predicting that the Fed will indeed start buying US stocks soon and that it will cause a larger bear market rally in the near future. But at what cost will the everyday American be paying for bailouts of banks, zombie companies, hedge funds and private equity when many Americans are only receiving scraps on a relative comparison?
