Tom and Tony take a look at GDP growth compared to the stock market gains.

The team took a look at both nominal and real GDP compared to the S&P 500. Since the end of the financial crisis, the market has seen far more exaggerated gains, compared to GDP.

The team went back and analyzed the dot-com bubble and bust and the '08 crisis. The team observed that the market may far out-pace GDP in the good years, but it also sees much larger drops in the bad years.

Tune in for Tom and Tony's full analysis!
