There’s been an uproar in the media over the threat of a government shutdown. The Senate must approve government funding by December 21st, but a disagreement over funding to build a wall along the U.S-Mexico border means the current bill is likely to fail.
In this week’s episode of The Eagle’s Nest podcast, Jason McBride and Bruce Larsen examine government shutdowns over the past 42 years and how those shutdowns have historically impacted the market. They also take a few minutes to share some very important tips about required minimum distributions and end-of-year IRA advice.
