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.

It's a shame that hosts other than Mark don't mention their names.

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.

China has been the first country on suffering the outbreak and it is very likely they will be the first country on recovering. So they have to change they way they interact with international community due to they were not pretty clear at the beginning on the outbreak 😠😠😠

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
