Surveillance: Stimulus Talks With Kudlow
41 min

Lawrence Kudlow, National Economic Council Director, doesn't know if a stimulus bill can be passed before the election. Afsaneh Beschloss, RockCreek Group CEO, says investments in renewable energy have been moving faster than those in oil and gas during the pandemic. Lale Topcuoglu, JOHCM Senior Fund Manager, says the U.S. will likely reach a stimulus agreement no matter which party wins the election, but the size of the package will be dependent on the victor. Pat Foye, MTA Chairman & CEO, says the MTA will be forced to make drastic draconian service cuts if they do not receive stimulus funding soon.
