05/03/2018: Yes, millennials buy houses sometimes

May 03, 2018

We've been talking a lot about the countries and companies that have asked for exemptions from President Donald Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs. But remember, the whole point of these things is to help out America's steel and aluminum industries. So we'll start today's show looking at the pro-tariff crowd before chatting with a few of the thousands of companies looking for exemptions. Then: Tesla's earnings call yesterday was feisty as Elon Musk's electric car company beat expectations while posting a record loss. We'll look at the challenges Musk is facing as he makes the turn from luxury to the mass market. Plus: Conventional wisdom says most millennials just can't buy houses anymore. We'll talk to a few who did and see how they were able to swing it.
