While it feels like domestic priorities have been in the spotlight for months, global concerns can’t be dismissed. Jeff Kleintop, Schwab’s chief global investment strategist, joins host Mike Townsend to discuss international activity with implications for U.S. markets. From U.S.-China relations to the outlook for President Biden’s relationship with allies across Europe to prospects for emerging markets in 2021, Jeff helps shine a light on where the potential opportunities are for investors.
Mike also shares his thoughts on the progress and timing of the latest economic stimulus bill, Washington’s new focus on the recent retail trading frenzy led by GameStop, Janet Yellen’s comments on tax increases in the administration’s next big bill, and the growing chatter about a possible delay in the April 15 tax deadline.
