Hello everyone, we are back with another emergency COVID-19 episode to dive further into what is going on with American economics and how it relates to you on a personal level, especially as physicians. This episode was recorded on Saturday, March 28th. The news changes quickly these days, so please consider the date and changes in the situation as you listen to this episode. 

In case you missed it, on March 18th, SC and I put out an episode that discussed, amongst other things, rebalancing your investment portfolio and the rate cut by the federal bank. Then, on March 21, we put out the second episode in this series, discussing interest rates, refinancing your home, creating a budget and many other pertinent topics. So, if you missed either of those, please go back and check them out first.
