Andrew Ross Sorkin is arguably America’s most important and influential financial and business journalist. He presides over the New York Times’ DealBook and co-anchors Squawk Box, the daily CNBC morning show avidly watched by titans of industry and hopped-up day traders alike. He’s also the author of “Too Big To Fail,” the definitive chronicle of the 2007-2008 financial crisis; he’s the co-creator of the Showtime series “Billions;” and he’s in the midst of developing a film with HBO on the GameStop/Robinhood meme-stock saga. On this episode of Hell & High Water, Heilemann and Sorkin discuss how big business sees the new political era dawning in Washington, D.C., how the pandemic has changed the economy and where it will lead, and how Wall Street looks at the capital city in the wake of Donald Trump. They also dive into the many speculative manias currently gripping the financial markets, and what — if anything — regulators might do about the stunning power being amassed by Big Tech.
