    How each organization is dealing with rising food prices
    Local food sourcing options and alternatives in their particular context.

    Colonial Heights Food Pantry - Colonial Heights, VA

    #007 - Commercial & Industrial Lending Pressures in an Inflationary Environment - with Jivraj Karwa, Boaz Salik

    #007 - Commercial & Industrial Lending Pressures in an Inflationary Environment - with Jivraj Karwa, Boaz Salik

    In this "return to form" episode of Views from the Crow's Nest, senior FischerJordan associate Jivraj Karwa drives a deep-diving discussion on unique pressures in commercial/industrial (C&I) lending in an inflationary environment. 
    Jivraj brings his expertise and experience as an analyst to the discussion to talk about the overall picture of the C&I market before and after the COVID-driven recession, some of the ramifications of recent legislation including the Inflation Reduction bill and the CHIPS act, and what we might expect to see in C&I in response to the current inflation-driven recession and signs of a long-awaited housing market slowdown.

    Mess Haul - “Hey Kid, Wanna Buy a Watch?” (plus: Fintechs for the Masses, National Security Risk of Antitrust) with Kshitish Nanda, Boaz Salik

    Mess Haul - “Hey Kid, Wanna Buy a Watch?” (plus: Fintechs for the Masses, National Security Risk of Antitrust) with Kshitish Nanda, Boaz Salik

    In this episode of the Mess Haul, Nathan, Boaz, and Kshitish dip into luxury watches, fintech as an equalizer for inequality, and national security implications of antitrust actions. Some questions we ask (and maybe answer):  
    Can luxury items like watches, fine art, or wine act as a store of value or inflation hedge like we’d usually expect of gold or real estate?
    Do the benefits of fintechs equalizing access to the unbanked start to diminish with government involvement?
    Will monopolies always raise the alarm about national security when the topic of antitrust action is brought up?
    The Mess Haul features a more free-form conversational approach with multiple participants than our more interview-focused style. This format is designed to generate quick takes on a handful of recent topics, facilitating shorter, more opinionated discussion with a number of different perspectives. Each episode of The Mess Haul is (usually) recorded, edited, and released in the same day.
    Today's conversationalists: Nathan Johnson, Kshitish Nanda, Boaz Salik

    MMH - FUD about Crypto, + GMO Mosquitos, Reversing User Bans (or not using at all?) - with Neet Shah, Boaz Salik

    MMH - FUD about Crypto, + GMO Mosquitos, Reversing User Bans (or not using at all?) - with Neet Shah, Boaz Salik

    In this episode of the *Midweek Mess Haul, Nathan, Neet, and Boaz share thoughts on GMOs mosquitos, their outlook on crypto after the hard plummet of 5/12, and the strategic ramifications of permanent social media bans. 
    The Quick Take: does introducing GMO mosquitos into an ecosystem have too many unintended consequences waiting in the wings? 
    The Big Dig: is the end-state of the current "Wild West" of crypto something where only the strongest survived? 
    The Final Cut: why should (or shouldn't) social media companies consider using permanent bans as a way to enforce terms of use?
