    MM038: Have we seen peak Facebook?

    Facebook has had a tough week. From its social media services going down due to a "faulty configuration change", to more deep-rooted problems unearthed by the latest Facebook Files leaked from a former employee. Can Mark Zuckerberg evolve the company once more, or is this the beginning of the end? We also discuss the latest energy crisis and what it means for inflation and the Bank of England, and why the Fed will push on with its taper timeline, despite another weak US jobs report.

We also discuss the latest FOMC meeting, where Fed Chair Jerome Powell said the central bank could begin scaling back asset purchases in November and complete the process by mid-2022, and look at the major obstacles the Bank of England will need to confront in order to hike rates as soon as February 2022.

Brilliant

The best podcast on financial markets. They make difficult concepts easy to understand for students wanting to learn more but also interesting and informative for all levels of experience.

Listening to you guys not only helped me navigate through the market but also prepared me for the challenges that me and my team faced on reopening our restaurant business after COVID, from higher produce prices to labour and produce shortages.
Many thanks!!!
