Thing’s You’ll Learn Along Today’s Journey
Many are panicking about where the economy is going. But Sean isn’t panicked! He breaks down the several reasons why you don’t need to panic right now either.
Some have made the comparison to the recession in 2008. Is this similar or are there enough significant differences between then and now? This mimics natural disaster more than the recession trends happening in 2008 when a greater number of businesses and people had high consumer debt.
We’ve had high unemployment numbers as well as a stimulus package. The government has also incentivized businesses with the PPP. Spending habits have changed, but people are still spending. Our country is too innovative and full of hard workers for this to hold us down long-term. This time may hurt, but Sean feels our economy can handle this situation.
While COVID-19 is a serious situation, we have weathered epidemics and pandemics before and we will make it through this. Make sure you follow your plan to achieve your goals and get your news from sources you can trust.
