We recently had a chance to catch up with Matt Hougan on StockTwits TV.  Matt is the President of ETF Analytics at IndexUniverse.  We had no shortage of topics to discuss and Matt is a great resource when it comes to the ETF industry.  We talked about the Kauffman Foundation report, the continued decline in ETF expense ratios, the problem inherent with many commodity ETFs and the difference between ETFs and ETNs.  You can view the video in its entirety below:
