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.
This week on The FarrCast markets, doom, wealth gap, taxes, and more about the markets. 30th years after the 1987 crash, Michael, Doug Kass, and Kenny Polcari -- all on the ground in 1987 -- talk about what happened, and what could happen to the current bull market. History doesn't repeat itself, but it usually rhymes.
Today's news from DC injects new uncertainty in the markets. Who will be the new Fed Chair? Can tax reform happen? The Republican Whip is working. Does the market care? Matt Leffingwell gives an insider's view, and Michael & Kenny talk about the future of markets in the face of political turmoil.
Finally, Michael welcomes guest Michael Nixon to talk about wealth inequality. Mike Nixon has worked in investment banking, government, and lending. With fewer people holding more of the wealth, what are the long term impacts on the economy -- and how can it be fixed?
Michael Farr cares about your money. Listen in and learn how you can take care of yours!
