To be honestGood morning.
Reddit is now on Wall Street’s radar for investment ideas (welcome to the party).  But while Wall Street may be focused on the retail traders in WallStreetBets, other parts of the site can offer some great investment lessons as well.
For instance, one user posted the results of a survey they conducted on LinkedIn to determine what has caused the latest shifts in digital transformation.  The overwhelming response?  The pandemic.  That data gives insight that company leaders may not have been ahead of the curve, but they knew how to react when a dire situation presented itself.  The investment lesson?  Digital trends are still ongoing, and investors likely have years of ample opportunities to profit in the space.

There is a ‘secret shame’ of middle-class Americans’ and it’s not diminishing!

I'll show you my investmentThe effects are wide-ranging.  High costs are preventing workers from moving to high-productivity cities, thus smothering the country’s economic vibrancy and putting a drag on its GDP; economists have estimated that GDP would be as much as 10 percent bigger if more workers could afford to live in places like San ]ose and Boston.  High costs are forcing families to delay getting married and to have fewer children, and putting the dream of owning a home out of reach.  [A mere four companies have account-ed for the stock market’s profits so far this year.]

But the Great Aflordability Crisis hides in plain sight, obvious to households but unmentioned in the country’s headline economic numbers.  It persists even as President Donald Trump rightly praises the country’s growth, low unemployment rate, and rising household incomes.  And though there are many nationwide policies that could end Advantage of being America2the crisis, they all seem unlikely to pass through the country’s broken Congress; the brightest glimmer of hope lies in housing and health-care policy by individual states.  But it is still a dim glimmer.  This crisis looks sure to stay with us for the coming decade, what-ever recessions or expansions it may hold.
