Polarization Affecting Asset Allocation in the Economy
Political polarization is hitting the U.S. economy in new and unexpected ways. It’s even affecting how assets are allocated. In a study by SMU Cox Finance Professor Tarun Patel and co-authors, political polarization was shown to impact the economy through a study of mergers.

In more recent years, the impact of polarization has become more evident and costly. The antidote: get along and find common ground.
