    Economic Conspiracy, Trump Sneakers & AI Problems

    Economic Conspiracy, Trump Sneakers & AI Problems

    The boys are off and running with shenanigans from the beginning. Haroon inadvertently opens his energy drink before the show started so he can't entertain you with his usual unnecessary interruptions, but don't worry, he filled his can with water for reasons we still don't fully understand. They spend a good amount of time recapping Jerome Powell's commentary from Jackson Hole, Wyoming which were clearly designed to strike fear in to the markets. One of their favorite economists, Mohamed El-Erian is very concerned that the Fed's actions to date may have 'destroyed the housing market by crushing both supply and demand.' Which was a fantastic segue in to the complete trash nonsense that Zillow is attempting to market. What do you do when home affordability is at an all time low? Rates are rising, home values haven't come down. Well, if you're Zillow, you offer a 1% down payment program to lure in homebuyers so you can sell more leads to Realtors.

    Jerome Powell Did Community Banks Dirty

    Jerome Powell Did Community Banks Dirty

    In this exhilarating episode 216 of The Higher Standard Podcast, Chris, Saied, and Haroon dive into the the tumultuous tumble of regional bank stocks, led by New York Community Bancorp's dramatic diva moment — cutting dividends and flaunting losses like it's going out of style. But don't let NYCB's solo act fool you; while they're busy singing the blues and getting sued by shareholders for a throwback to their 1997 stock price, Moody’s isn't here for the nostalgia, slapping them with a junk rating faster than you can say "financial meltdown." Meanwhile, Powell plays it cool, promising rate cuts with the enthusiasm of a parent telling their kids they’ll think about getting a puppy.

    Your Best First Investments, Home Sales & Repos

    The Higher Standard is back, fresh off their new once a week cadence. It feels equally as weird for Chris, Saied and Haroon. Behind the scenes, our boy Hayden, is getting up to speed on all the editing work. The end goal is to bring you all better content, better shows and better guests. We start off episode 214 with a hard look at the housing market and where it could be going. Chris expresses concerns for the "repo" market and the pressure it may ultimately put on the Fed to cut rates earlier than expected. Then the boys dive in to a long segment on saving and investing your twenties, why that's so important and what you can do to build wealth right now!

    The Last Thursday, Bostic Is A Hater & Cash Is Moving

    The Last Thursday, Bostic Is A Hater & Cash Is Moving

    This was a sad episode. Reluctantly, the boys have decided to try and change things up a bit by going from two shows a week down to one. Chris, Saied and Haroon are eliminating the Friday episode so that they can focus on improving the quality of content and growing the brand. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I guess we are a little crazy. But not as crazy as the CEO who was the most accurate home-price forecaster in 2023. Chris has objections to that stance. The Fed's Raphael Bostic expects rate cuts to happen in the third quarter and Saied is convinced they are trying to scare the economy out of the optimism. And the Biden administration may have actually got something right for once. We are as shocked as you are.

Raul Still at it with Reviews

My vision board is now has 2-3 episodes per week

Jeffboyarrdee ,

Great content and humor

Hey guys,

I’ve been listening to your podcast and love the collabs with baller buster, mainly Solomondrin. I like the content as well. The one criticism, hopefully constructive, is that you guys are so knowledgeable and have interesting perspectives that I think there can be more dialogue/discussion on the meat and potatoes of a given podcast episode and don’t need to have 75% just banter. Maybe mix in the humor and jokes throughout. I figured I can listen to the first 25% but may not necessarily need to keep listening to the last 75%. Anyway, I’ll still be listening regardless!

Jeff (not from 21 jump street)

Leo_the_Scorpio_888 ,

This pod is fire!!!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

I love listening to you guys every week. I love how you guys break everything down and make it fun. Not boring like a lot of other people make subjects like financial literacy be. The fun, playful atmosphere makes these topics easy to digest. You guys know when to be serious and when to crack a joke. And for me that’s the best recipe for my learning style. Especially for someone like myself who is just now getting my feet wet and learning about trading stocks and investing.Also I find it hilarious how haroon’s voice sounds like Grover from Sesame Street 😂😂😂 keep up the good work guys. I’ll be listening ✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽
