Episode Summary

Financial sectors and other media outlets have been reporting that a Donald Trump Presidency will badly affect the stock market. How true are some of these statements, though? To be clear, this podcast episode has nothing to do with Trump himself and his administration, instead, it dives into a biased financial media that profits off your moving your money elsewhere.
