With life changing faster than we can keep up with and now living in unprecedented new realities, we have to ask ourselves: What will be the lessons learned from the 2020 Coronavirus crisis?
Just like the S&L crisis brought us the Interest Reserve feature in a construction loan, and 9/11 resulted in taking off shoes at airports, will COVID-19 mean no more door handles for viruses to be transmitted? These are the “Look Up and Forward” questions the Red-Shoe Economist wants you to to be thinking about instead of the decline in your 401(k) statement after Q1. KC Conway shares his expertise on what can be learned in times of global crisis.
