Is Roaring Kitty A Hero Or a Villain?

Is Roaring Kitty A Hero Or a Villain?

When does "talking your book" cross over into stock manipulation? On this week's podcast, Tom and Dylan discuss the recent price action in GameStop and whether or not, Keith Gill (better known as Roaring Kitty) manipulated the stock's price or simply found and exploited a market inefficiency. Does the situation need to be investigated simply to avoid the appearance of impropriety?

Is the American Dream Dead?

Is the American Dream Dead?

A good job, marriage, 2.5 kids, house, car and a trip to Disneyworld. That was the American Dream. Is it still? Have the things we want out of life changed and with that, has the dream changed? That's fine if that's the case. The deeper question is, has the dream changed because the original dream isn't attainable? Or, has it changed because what we want has changed? This week, Tom and Dylan discuss the proverbial American Dream, what it is and if it's attainable.

Regression to the Meme?

Regression to the Meme?

We thought the chapter on meme stocks was complete. It was written off as people fed up with being stuck at home from Covid, taking their government checks and bidding up stocks no one was watching. Essentially, it was something that was unlikely to happen under any other circumstances. So, what brought it back this time? Tom and Dylan discuss meme stocks, what allowed them to happen the first time and what the most recent renewed interest might mean.

Is Tenure Corrupting Education?

Is Tenure Corrupting Education?

Tenure is unique to academia. Teachers are afforded protection once granted tenure so they can research and discuss topics that might otherwise jeopardize job security. However, there is an unintended consequence that needs addressing. That is, when teaching jobs are protected, does it end up keeping out fresh blood with new ideas? On this week's episode, Tom and Dylan discuss tenure and whether it functions as intended.

Are Noncompete Clauses Fair? | Truth or Skepticism

Are Noncompete Clauses Fair? | Truth or Skepticism

The FTC recently ruled noncompete agreements can no longer be used for employees making less than $151K in non-senior leadership roles. On this week's episode, Tom and Dylan debate noncompete agreements and if they should be used. Is there a case for companies using them after making an investment in an individual? Or does a noncompete just trap people in a job they don't want? Tune into this week's episode and hear Tom and Dylan's respective takes as well as discuss why fewer and fewer companies are opting to go public.

We Created tasty So You Don't Have To Watch Them

We Created tasty So You Don't Have To Watch Them

We're unique. Or maybe special is a better way of putting it. Unconventional. We take the other side of what the general public thinks, says or does. It's not just about trading, it's a way of approaching life. Does it offer any advantages? We aren't really sure but it works for us and it's gotten us this far. On this week's episode, Dylan challenges Tom's philosophical approach to trading and life. Also, frankendogs.

Financial Media Is One Big Conspiracy Theory | Truth or Skepticism

Financial Media Is One Big Conspiracy Theory | Truth or Skepticism

Was it a single shooter that killed Kennedy or were there more? What about the moon landing? Conspiracy theories have and always will exist. Improvements in technology mean even the most insane and destructive ideas can reach a wide audience and generate profits. Alex Jones is the poster child for that type of exploitation. At the same time, technology is what allows us to quickly disprove those types of people. On this week's episode, Tom and Dylan discuss conspiracy theories and how they play out in the market.

Are You Be Too Rich?

Are You Be Too Rich?

If Patrick Mahomes were told the most money he could make playing football is $1 million, would he quit? If a net worth limit were imposed, what would be the repercussions? There's an argument to be made that the pursuit of money has diminishing returns. It doesn't lead to greater happiness. It does create wealth inequality and inflation. A new socioeconomic theory is emerging that some sort of net worth limitation may improve society. Does the idea have merit? Tune in to hear Tom and Dylan debate the concept.
