Marci Rossell: The COVID-19 Economy


Marci Rossell is the former Chief Economist for CNBC and Co-Host of Squawk BoxAn economic forecasting expert, Rossell recorded "The Covid-19 Economy" in partnership with LAI Video, a DC based full-service video agency, to create an informative, polished, and animated experience for listeners.

In this talk, Rossell discusses the impact of the $2.3 trillion-dollar CARES Act passed by Congress, and how the CARES Act compares with monetary assistance in other countries. At almost 10% of the United States annual GDP, the relief fund shouldn’t be categorized as a stimulus package because the current environment isn’t in a normal recession nor a depression. It’s more akin to a natural disaster that requires a targeted and timely approach.

Rossell goes onto explore ways we can recover explaining the importance of the banking sector and how rent and wage changes can be motivating factors to sow the seeds for restoration. Undoubtedly a challenging road ahead, Rossell acknowledges bright spots in the downturn. From working from home to virtual meetings, she credits the technological advances that have allowed new work patterns to succeed, a feat not possible 15 years ago.
