CoreLogic Home Price Index and HPI Forecast for September 2021: Demand for home buying remained strong through the end of the summer. However, the ongoing housing supply shortage has continued to drive up prices, which increased 18% year over year in September, to record highs creating additional challenges for entry into the homebuying market. High demand and low supply levels for entry-level homes, in particular, are sidelining many would-be first-time buyers. As millennials continue to make up a large part of homebuying demand and flock to tech hubs like Seattle; San Jose, California, and Austin, Texas, we may see this challenge intensify.

Apple's privacy features from their iOS 14.5 update are costing, according to a third-party service, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Snapchat about 10 billion in combined loss revenue in the second half of 2021. Apple has stopped their ability to target specific phones and track you and retarget you so when users opt-out of being tracked it basically makes the cost go up because you're going to need more impressions and you're going to have a lower click-through rate (1:57). Jason Calacanis thinks that one way for Facebook and other companies that rely on advertising to get ahead is when you load Facebook or Instagram, for example, it should say would you like to opt-out of tracking and have no ads in your feed for $9.95 a month across the suite of Apple products? We will not track any of your data and we'll delete all of the profile data that we have in secret and you will see no ads. Jason thinks a lot of people will pay for this feature and at the same time solve this Apple issue (12:02).

Aswath Damodaran says that the problem with the proposed billionaire tax is anytime you tax unrealized profits of any kind, you create friction. Somebody has to do something to pay those taxes. If you don't have the cash on hand, you either have to sell shares or borrow money and that creates consequences in costs which have to be borne not just by the taxpayer but the rest of us. For instance, if you make Elon Musk pay $50B, he will have to sell 50B worth of Tesla stock. It's going to affect not just the Tesla stock but also all the shareholders (35:38).
