The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 279 of the In The Tank Podcast. The ITT crew examine the amazing story of GameStop stock trading on Wall Street this week -- which pitted huge hedge funds shorting the stock vs. regular "retail investors" who teamed up using Reddit and social media to move the stock the other way. The result: the hedge funds took a bath worth billions, and the power of the system moved in to bail them out. They also discuss President Biden’s moves that put the U.S.’s energy independence in jeopardy.
