Interest Rates and Market Update [E116]

On this Episode of Business by the Numbers, Hunt reflects on his time at the STX conference in Nashville, sharing stories about the connections made and lessons learned from industry experts.

• Economic News Breakdown: We get into the latest economic updates that dropped last Wednesday. Hunt breaks down what these changes in numbers might mean for your wallet and business this year, especially when it comes to interest rates.

• Tax Talk and Government Spending: Hunt explains the proposed wealth tax and what the latest federal budget might mean for us. There’s a lot of talk about balancing the budget without raising taxes too much, and we'll explore what that could look like.

• Capital Gains and Your Money: We take a closer look at potential hikes in capital gains taxes and how these could affect your investments and long-term financial planning.

• Understanding the Numbers: Inflation, GDP... these terms get thrown around a lot. We’ll unpack what they really mean for the economy and for us as workers and business owners.
