7:10am: Matt Rousu, Ph.D, Dean of the Sigmund Weis School of Business, Professor of Economics, Susquehanna University, on the prospects of the US economy ‘snapping back,’ and a deep dive into capitalism—wouldn’t it be better at these times if we had socialized medicine and government controlled stores? Also… When the time comes, how do you suggest that we switch back on our local economy? How resilient do you think that our local economy is?
