High and Tight

Episode 53 of The Far Middle comes in high and tight, just like a Don Drysdale fastball—the namesake of this installment.

Nick covers a host of topics—“dots”—in this episode, which is the first lightning round format. Topics include market volatility, energy policy/costs, inflation and debt-to-GDP, Chicago and Mayor Lightfoot, conservation easements, the opioid epidemic, China, and more. And as he often does, Nick concludes by bringing the episode back full circle to Don Drysdale and one of the nine-time All-Star’s biggest fans.
