Every Friday, the Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik for a new episode of “WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON,” the only show that breaks down the beltway’s economic updates for both financial VIPs and every day Americans looking for market tips.
This week, we opened by talking about the realignment we’re seeing in the Republican Party when it comes to directly funding states impacted by coronavirus. Still, the fiscal hawks are screwing up the process. That launched into an expanded discussion on what you can expect to be jam-packed into the Phase 4 coronavirus bill. Plenty of insider baseball from Christian on what the White House is really prioritizing and what they’re willing to scrap in this segment.

Next, Omeed gave a detailed rundown on one of the most powerful men in the world, who many of you probably have never even heard of, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, before launching into this week’s primer on the debt vs. the deficit.
Our thought experiment centered on an increasingly popular issue among new wave populist conservatives: how should we deal with the predatory student loan system? In the past, Democrats have led the way on this issue, but thanks in part to figures like Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson, we’re seeing some bipartisan action in the space.
Finally, since we’ve been spot on the money with calling market trends over the past few weeks, the boys figured they’d handcuff themselves and try to figure out one the most modern of all currencies, Bitcoin.
