What is an interest rate and why do investors pay close attention to them? In this episode, Bill and Anastasia discuss how interest rates affect stocks, bonds, and how the Federal Reserve's actions impact the broader economy. They cover what is going on with today's interest rates, how that compares to the historical average, and what investors should keep in mind with the Fed's announced interest rate increases for 2022. Bill discusses AMC stock and Anastasia mentions how she guest starred on a friend's Dungeons and Dragons podcast, playing a "financial wizard."
