In the second installment of Informal Economics, Eric Mason kicks things off by answering the questions submitted to us from the previous episode before diving into Fiscal and Monetary Policy and the impact those can have on the industries. He then explores how government regulation affects the market, particularly in relation to emerging technologies like AI, before delving into the national debt and the ideal debt situation for the US. Finally, Eric touches on the relationship between debt and interest rates, as well as the importance of structuring and managing debt effectively.

Mr. Banks:

Working as a commercial banker and trading on the side helped Mr. Banks develop his trading style into what it is today. As a banker, his main thought is: “What’s the worst that can happen and how can I mitigate that risk?” Taking that same thought process into trading has made him focus more on his trade setups. Trade with confidence, trade what the market gives and limit the unknown factors.
