Welcome to the FarrCast, hosted by Michael Farr, president and CEO of Washington DC wealth management firm, Farr, Miller & Washington. The FarrCast brings you up to date news from Washington, Wall St., and Main St., and discusses what it means for you and your future investments. Each week Michael will have guests with insights into economics, policy, personal finance, and the intersections between them all. Listen in not just for analysis of what has happened, but for the forecast of where the markets are going.
On this week's FarrCast, Michael explains the yield curve, and Kenny tells us why the markets might not be as robust as the indexes might make you think. Kenny stays on for the second segment as Michael welcomes guest Becky Tallent, former staffer for both John Boehner and John McCain. Along with regular Matt Leffingwell, they make sense of the developments in Washington and what comes next -- and what it means for the markets. In her career on the Hill, Becky became an expert on immigration policy, and she explains how the system is broken, and how it impacts the economy, both today and limiting long-term growth.
As ever, the FarrCast brings fun to the discussion and helps you understand what makes the markets move
