News:

The Congressional Budget Office is predicting a 30% decline in GDP for Q2. Along with 26 million fewer people employed than Q4 of last year. By no means am I an economist but I wouldn't expect things to get back to normal too quickly after this pandemic is over. The primary and secondary effects of this virus will likely be long lasting. President Trump just signed an executive order "instructing federal agencies to use any and all authority to waive, suspend and eliminate unnecessary regulations that impede economic recovery."
