Share this:

This 9-part Quarantine Edition of The McFuture podcast explores the economics of the deadly Coronavirus – and how we can avoid the possibly deadlier consequences of its cure – a deep recession, or worse.  Here, I explain my inspiration for this series – our last recession. And why I’m optimistic we can make something positive from this turmoil.
