Quotes

[03:48] - “That's the beauty of the American system, right? There are always ebbs and flows between one party or another, or one prevailing ideology or another. It's a good or a bad thing politically, but generally, a moderation between one party or the other is good in my opinion.” - Doug Stokes

[07:59] - “Markets don't like surprises. For example, we all saw that in March of 2020, when the world was coming to an end—the stock prices were falling off a cliff because there was so much uncertainty.” - Greg Stokes
