Elections Have (Fintech) Consequences

Glen shares insights- including perspectives from multiple sources- on how the election’s outcome will impact credit unions, banks and fintech firms. Also, the impact of California’s Prop 22 on the gig economy, Ant Financial’s spectacular IPO head fake, and Visa/Plaid runs afoul of the Department of Justice.
