Episode Notes

Welcome to Slate Money Goes to the Movies, a miniseries in which Felix Salmon, Anna Szymanski, and a different guest each week discuss popular business-themed movies.

This week, Felix and Anna are joined by Josh Brown, CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management and a Wall Street superfan, to talk about Oliver Stone’s 1987 ode to yuppie culture. They discuss the corporate raider culture of the ‘80s, the era of  “smiling and dialing,” and the wonky legality of insider trading.


Podcast production by Jessamine Molli.
