Media Personality Jason Hartman and RBC Wealth Management CEO John Taft Engage in Fascinating Discussion on Wall Street’s Role in Society

Taft also Recommends Investors get into Equities now

Scottsdale, AZ – Podcasting guru Jason Hartman spoke to Royal Bank of Canada Wealth Management (RY on TSX and NYSE) (RBC) CEO John Taft on his popular Creating Wealth Show. Taft and Hartman touched on various philosophical topics involving Wall Street, including the importance of financial innovation and a financial system to individual countries, why Wall Streeters lose their moral compass every 10-20 years, and outlooks on the U.S. economy and stock market.

“We [RBC] don’t see a recession coming in the United States,” Taft said on the show. “The economic recovery and bull market in equities still has room to run… maybe for many years, so don’t be afraid to invest in equities. You will get paid in time if you get in today.”

The first half of Hartman and Taft’s conversation centered around Wall Street’s culture and place as the engine for economic prosperity. Hartman has been critical of Wall Street’s “modern version of organized crime,” but Taft countered with information on its role in the economy.

“Capitalism – powered by finance – has improved standards of living around the world over the past quarter of a century,” Taft said. “It has moved billions of people out of poverty. The financial system that powers capitalism has made this happen.”

In addition to leading RBC’s wealth management group, Taft is a two-time bestselling author of A FORCE FOR GOOD: How Enlightened Finance Can Restore Faith in Capitalism and STEWARDSHIP: Lessons Learned from the Lost Culture of Wall Street. He’s the former Chairman of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) and the great-grandson of President and Chief Justice William Howard Taft.
