The moment a company or a person, no matter where they come from, interpret the allegations against them as attack on their nation, we should be very suspicious about them. They bring their nationality to the table to hide something for sure

Happy to see that true athletes support their comrades from different countries so many times during Olympics (Russia/US/China/UK/Ukraine/Italy etc). Sadly, can't say the same about this episode. Couple of bitter comments don't change anything.

Sweden lives of trade, DK is a farmers country and Norway lives of shipping oil and fish industry. Swedes travel by far more and our covid has hit us first. If the other countries ever open up they will by default get more infected.

The biggest take in this episode of FT #News briefing #Podcast is that #USA should pick equities in all the companies it will help. As quoted by an expert "You can't just socialize losses, you need to socialize gains as well". #PodcastRecommendations #Business
