John Tamny, editor of RealClearMarkets and Director of the Center for Economic Freedom at FreedomWorks joined Randy to discuss the upheaval in the stock markets last week.

"A lot of the market uncertainty is rooted in policy," says Tamny.  " Tariffs would be bad.  Tariffs imposed on China would be bad for US businesses, because it would limit their ability to sell overseas where they get a lot of sales."

Tamny says the economy needs to continue to grow for the American people to stay confident.

"I don't think that we could have few years or a year of sub par growth and Americans would remain patient," says Tamny.
