Tesla's wild 2020 ride

Tesla’s stock has gone up almost 700%. That’s huge considering the average stock market return is around 10% per year.

This week, Tesla started trading as part of the famous S&P 500, a basket of some of the biggest publicly traded companies in America. Think Apple, Walmart or Johnson & Johnson. And because many Americans invest in funds that track the S&P, a whole lot more people now own a piece of Tesla — for better or worse.

  • Plus, the post-pandemic job market.
  • And, how to have tough conversations this holiday.

Guests: Axios' Aja Whitaker-Moore and Alison Snyder, and Nick Bloom, economics professor at Stanford University.
