$1.9 Trillion Stimulus Plan: What This Could Mean for Your Wealth and Taxes with Dan Clifton
Biz Money Podcast
It’s been a year since the Covid lockdown, and the future is starting to look up with vaccines, reopenings, and passage of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act. This stimulus coupled with past relief bills means that trillions of dollars have been spent. Eventually, someone will have to pay for it, and that someone usually means the taxpayer. As an entrepreneur and business owner, what are the tax implications for you? In this episode, our guest is Dan Clifton, Partner and Head of Policy Research for Strategas. Dan is a top ranked Washington policy analyst who served as the Executive Director of the American Shareholders Association and senior staff member in two gubernatorial administrations. He is a frequent guest on CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox Business. Join us as Dan shares his insights into the political environment and how that could impact tax policies, from higher capital gains and dividend tax rates to reinstating state and local tax deductions. Listen in as we go beyond the politics and get to the facts.

#10 Approaching Singularity - Paul Giuliano, Dan Clifton & Matt Monihan
On Episode 10, Rocket Scientist Paul Giuliano joins Dan and Matt to talk about what he does to keep our satellites safe, the future of interstellar travel, jet propulsion the privatization of the space industry. More about Paul: I'm currently an engineer with Boeing Satellite Systems based out of El Segundo at the largest satellite factory in the world. Previously, I was a researcher at various institutions on plasma physics as applied to space propulsion, studying at USC and Michigan, where I received my PhD on the topic, as well as summer fellowships at Princeton and Jet Propulsion Lab. When I'm not working on these extremely complex problems on half-billion-dollar systems, I enjoy reading and teaching -- I'm involved with a few science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) outreach programs at local elementary, middle, and high school and I try to advise and consult in every way possible, both internally and externally. The internal consulting is proprietary but with the external consulting I try to keep fun and creative with an emphasis on understanding of the fundamentals. I think my first serious scientific consulting work with media in mind was for Dan's "For All Mankind" short -- there's been a few since then and this year I'll be rolling out a more focused effort.
