The Boy Who Cried ‘Postal Service’ | WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON EP. 20
Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik for a new episode of “WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON.” It’s the only show that breaks down the Beltway’s economic updates for both financial VIPs and everyday Americans looking for market tips.
It’s the week of the Republican National Convention, so Malik kicked things off Monday by looking back at the Democratic National Convention and predicting how the GOP will counter Biden’s (lack of) policies.

They also took a look at why exactly both sides of the United States Postal Service debate aren’t getting it right and offered some advice on how Republicans should be approaching the situation without giving Democrats undo ammo ahead of the election in November.
Finally, we ended this week going deep on what exactly went wrong with the Trump administration’s Kodak deal. Ultimately, a government is only as strong as its weakest link and the same could be said of businesses. There’s no getting around it — weak links in both camps tanked a monumental, patriotic capitalism deal.
Don’t forget to check out the previous week’s episode if you haven’t already!
