►SPACs – You won’t believe how much money the sponsors, arbs and institutional investors are making right now.

►The Return of Inflation – No, it’s not dead and it hasn’t been tamed. Get ready.

►Stock Pickers – Over the last 12 months, the percentage of S&P 500 stocks beating the index itself has dropped toward record lows.

►Meme Stock Fiasco – How is it fair that brokerage firms can just stop trading certain stocks in the middle of a big rally and screw over their users?
