It’s no surprise that, on top of health concerns, people are facing economic anxiety due to the coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, April 23, SiriusXM’s Business Radio (Ch. 132) hosted a virtual town hall meeting to address said concerns as hosts and guests discussed the current state of our economy, which listeners can now hear On Demand below.
The State of Our Economy: A SiriusXM Business Radio Virtual Town Hall on Current Conditions and Forecasts looked at both current conditions and forecasts as speakers delved into a potential restart plan, the government’s response, economic forecasts, business lockdowns, unclogging the financial pipeline, and working together to overcome the global pandemic.
