Show Notes

Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, or SPACs, have been a hot ticket item for private companies to go public since 2019. Three hundred deals have been completed totaling $540 billion. This type of activity has triggered SEC Chair, Gary Gensler, to scrutinize these deals and propose new recommendations as a way to better protect investors. Sounds great, right? Jennifer Schulp, Director of Financial Regulation Studies at the libertarian think tank Cato Institute, doesn't think so. Tune in to hear her counter argument to Chair Gensler's proposed recommendations.

Stay tuned for an investor education episode on SPAC investing. This bonus episode will be available to subscribers only on Apple Podcasts.
