this is amazing looking and listening backwards to this excellent podcast, how we didn't realize at the time that this pandemic was a local problem, whereas our economy is globally connected and dependant. hindsight 20/20 is a cheat and hopefully we have a path forward with a different approach to trade in the future. thank you for your great podcasts
