How short-termism is misunderstood, millennials won't leave home and a battle of two Wall St bankers

Then, a recent Goldman Sachs report suggests more millennials lived in their parents' homes in 2015 than the year before, despite a strengthening jobs market. The FT's Anna Nicolaou joins Cardiff and Shannon to discuss what's holding millennials back despite the fact that they are not unemployed. Finally, Lex writer Sujeet Indap shares a tale of two Wall St bankers. Music by Podington Bear and Broke For Free.
