I love music. A good song can comfort, inspire or motivate.  There are a lot of really good songs out there. I found one the other day. I’ll get to that in a minute. But first, I have to say there are also some real duds.

I get really frustrated by people arguing vociferously about things they don’t know anything about. And on no subject is this more prevalent than the debate over the minimum wage. Bring up the “fight for $15” and you will suddenly get high school dropouts who can’t do basic multiplication yelling at you emphatically about the benefits of government-imposed wage floors. Because, you know, they feel like it should work.

In the most recent Friday Gold Wrap podcast, Mike Maharrey talked about the fact that the Federal Reserve has increasingly engaged in more and more extraordinary monetary policy. As he put it, extreme has become the norm. Despite what pundits insist is a “great” economy, interest rates are extremely low by historical standards and the Fed is engaging in quantitative easing to the tune of $60 billion a month.

While stock markets continue to make record highs and the economy continues to grow, the question is how long can this last?

According to Elizabeth Warren, we have a problem. And like every good central planner, she believes she can fix it.

In fact, Warren has made, “I have a plan for that,” a campaign slogan.

These people never learn. They try to micromanage the economy, create all kinds of unseen consequences, blame “capitalism,” and repeat the process.

José Niño was born in Venezuela and his family has experienced the impacts of socialism first hand. But was it “real socialism?”

On this episode of It’s Your Dime, José and host Mike Maharrey talk about it.

José had the good fortune of leaving Venezuela before it descended into chaos. After reading the tea leaves and realizing that the country was heading down the path of political turmoil, José’s parents brought his family to the US in search of better opportunities.

As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is taking aim at Florida. What’s fun about that? you might ask. Well, nothing. And I don’t want to minimize the potential for disaster. But the hurricane hasn’t hit yet and the runup to a storm provides a lot of amusement and some educational moments. I just can’t resist.

You would think folks on Wall Street would be pretty good at economics. Some of them are. But as Alex Merced will attest, just because somebody lands a job as a stockbroker doesn’t mean they’re a good economist.

Alex works as a Wall Street trainer. He also teaches economics. In fact, he’s produced hundreds of videos on economic topics ranging from basic to advanced. In this episode of It’s Your Dime, host Mike Maharrey and Alex talk about economics and investing.
