Barry Ritholtz is co-founder, chairman and CIO of Ritholtz Wealth Management. He’s a columnist for Bloomberg, a former columnist for CNBC and Washington Post and host of the Masters of Business podcast. He is both analytical and opinionated, irreverent and relevant, and willing to share it all. You’ll enjoy this one. Here’s an example: “Cash is not speech this one of those nonsensical corrupt supreme court decisions. That everyone knows is bullshit…Cash is cash; speech is speech. Corporations are not people. If a corporation wants to give money to politicians, that is corruption and you get tied in a burlap bag with a wildcat and thrown into the river.”
Barry also talks with Jon about making ADHD his superpower, the reforms he would make if he were king of the capital markets and his strategy for approaching decisions in life. Barry explains why he thinks the US public is not nearly as polarized as the parties and casts some light on our blind spots.
