Editor’s note: Like all Americans, we wish the president a speedy recovery. But in the meantime, the election approaches, so we’re going to keep covering the pocketbook issues that could potentially affect you; including this podcast, recorded last week.

Planning to vote this year? I certainly hope so.

In some elections, the candidates are so similar, it’s difficult to distinguish between the two. In this one, however, the differences between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump are both numerous and stark. And many of those differences arise from economic policy.

If you’re someone who votes with their pocketbook, you may be wondering things like who’s more likely to increase the value of your 401(k), and whether Trump or Biden is better positioned to raise the value of your home.

According to an analysis by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Trump’s alma mater, Biden is best to lead the economy. From CBS News:

“Joe Biden’s economic proposals would create a faster growing economy, higher wages for American workers and reduce the debt compared to where the U.S. is headed under President Donald Trump, according to new analysis from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.”

But according to polls, Trump is slightly more trusted by potential voters to shepherd the economy.

In this week’s “Money” podcast, and in additional ones in the weeks to come, we’re going to do our best to predict the pocketbook results of Trump and Biden victories.

In future podcasts, we’ll explore Social Security, health care and income taxes. Today, we’re focusing on the stock and real estate markets. I’ll be speculating with Andrew Sather of the Investing for Beginners Podcast, as well as my co-host, financial journalist Miranda Marquit.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money” podcast!

Not familiar with podcasts?

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.

They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically about a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.

You can listen to our latest podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
