In today’s episode, we start by covering Dr. Bernstein’s recent book, The Delusions Of Crowds: Why People Go Mad in Groups.  He explains why we’re susceptible to manias and walks us through situations that have seen extreme speculation. Then we turn to discuss today’s market. We cover Robinhood, meme stocks, lofty valuations, and crypto. We even get into what narratives Dr. Bernstein sees today, whether it’s with star fund managers or the idea that the Fed will save the market.
