A Coronavirus Update with “The Great Calmer Downer”

By Jane Atkinson

On March 5th, at the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis, we aired a podcast with my good friend and Economist, Andrew Busch.  Today Andy has recorded a special edition of The Wealthy Speaker Show to update us on current events. I always refer to Andy as “The Great Calmer Downer” because he looks at what’s happening to influence the economy, what we can expect in the future and where we can find a bright spot to focus on.

Andrew B. Busch is the former 1st Chief Market Intelligence Officer for the US government. At the CFTC, he was charged with improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of the markets.  Andy provided briefings to White House, US House and US Senate staffers on a wide range of issues including; extreme market volatility, China’s influence on the global commodity markets and the impact of Fintech & virtual currencies on market dynamics.

Tune in to a special episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show for a quick update on the current state of affairs with Economist, Andrew Busch.
