No comparison to the biggest debtor nation of all??

Good conversation but what stands out the most is the complete absence of discussion of the enormous US debt. Even if it was outside the scope of this podcast, I would have liked at least an allusion to our debt problem. To think that bankruptcy, default, and declaration of odious debt here is out of the realm of possibilities, in my humble opinion, is regrettable. Our politicians and banks will save themselves just like politicians and banks around the world do. If expedient for a future, restructured US government version to find a way to not pay Medicare and SS obligations, US bonds, etc., then they will do so. Unfortunately, similar to one of the podcast examples, foreign bond holders and banks will more likely be made whole than the US citizens who were forced to pay lifetimes’ worth of contributions. Some conversation in a future podcast would be great. I apologize if this prospect was previously covered in other podcasts but this one seemed appropriate for a revisit. I enjoy the show. Thank you.

Wonky and weird

Tracy and Joe turn up the wonkiness and look into interesting financial stories, but usually manage to keep it from turning boring.

Always feel like I come away with a bit of knowledge about a weird market, or interesting ideas to think about further.

This is Planet Money on steroids

This show is a great way to go deeper into an incredibly broad range of financial topics
