Connections: Discussing the state of the economy during this stage of the pandemic

Why is the stock market booming when the economy is crashing? Our guests explore the seeming disconnect between Wall Street and Main Street.

We also look at what's working, and maybe what's not, when it comes to helping people who are out of work. And we discuss the price gouging that can happen during a crisis. Our guests:

  • Amit Batabyal, Arthur J. Gosnell Professor of Economics at RIT
  • Kent Gardner, chief economist with the Center for Governmental Research
