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.

The Business of Trust feat. Rinaldi Halim, Chuck Schofield

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Who can you trust when buying a car? This is a very complex question. Certainly, the easy answer, the one that speaks to our monkey brain, is to seek the counsel of your parents. After all, if they kept you alive for the last 18 years, they have some credibility of knowing what's right, and therefore you trust them implicitly. Another answer would be to trust technology. Examples of trust in technology are visiting websites like Kelly Blue Book, Edmunds, and Truecar, where they've amassed copious amounts of data points to provide you with trusted guidance. Other examples of trust in technology are to use apps. Seventy episodes ago, we discussed an app called AutoGravity which allows you to shop for cars, apply for credit, and know your payment all from  your phone so that there are no surprises when you arrive at the dealership. There is a common thread to these trusted sources. They remain agnostic about your purchase. It is ironic, to some degree, that trust is embedded in sources who don't care about your business versus those who do care about your business. This is the conundrum of automotive dealers where agnostic sources of car buying are trusted more than the dealer. And let's be honest. Both customers and dealers play this game of poker, trying to only disclose tidbits of information so that one player can eventually go all in. Tune in to hear about this crazy game of poker between customers and dealers.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Yes, there are dealerships with beautiful looking showrooms. Yes, dealerships are starting to have more product experts than salespersons. Yes, coffee and food are available while waiting for your car at any dealership. But, what is rare to find is an underlying connection to how all those touch points of a dealership make the customer feel welcome. Sounds easier said than done. According to Ephraim Barcelo, General Manager of John Elway's Crown Toyota, it takes the "slight edge." [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...
