Rank #2: The next 45 days are the "most critical period in U.S. financial history,"

Podcast cover
Read more
Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 04/22/2020, including: On Wed April 22, 2020 Current restrictions on medical procedures will be loosened. "Adequate supplies of hospital beds and PPE must be maintained to ensure that all COVID-19 needs are met," Abbott said. Currently, hospitals and other medical specialists are not allowed to perform non-essential procedures such as diagnostics testing for cancer. This new change will allow doctors to treat patients without having to request state approval. President Trump announced late Monday he will soon sign an executive order "to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States," in what appeared to be a drastic escalation of his efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic and boost the economy. The next 45 days are the ‘most critical period in U.S. financial history,’ says stock-market expert who profited in 1987 and 2008 crises.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is releasing about 1,000 “non-violent” offenders to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak within the county jail. She says each will be screened for prior felonies and previous violent behavior. America's Make-or-Break Week: Bills are now coming due for companies and millions of laid-off workers.

Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 03/12/2020, including: Social Distancing is the new Coronavirus buzz phrase. Does It Work? How will collapsing oil prices affect Texas? It depends on these two factors, experts say. Big media is all about ratings, view, and clicks, hence their axiom, “If it bleeds, it leads.” A viral outbreak is the perfect story, on par with a missing Malaysian airliner or a celebrity football player named OJ on trial for murder.

Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 04/15/2020, including: States like Nevada and Florida that depend heavily on tourism will be hit hardest by coronavirus-related job losses this year while rural states will be most insulated, according to an analysis by IHS Markit. Coronavirus has dealerships moving to online sales — and car buying may never be the same. The stay at home orders and assigning who is essential and who is non-essential and whether we need to wear masks has been haphazard at best. If city leaders were serious about stopping the spread wouldn’t making grocery store workers wear gloves and masks had been the first thing they did?

Under normal market dynamics, investors and traders would wait for headlines around key catalysts to start improving before jumping back into riskier assets such as stocks. How quickly the soft tyranny of good intentions by the government becomes crushingly oppressive. Police across Texas are enforcing social distancing, but they're hesitant to make arrests
law enforcement agencies are focusing instead on education or issuing warnings.

Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 03/19/2020, including: The CDC changed their guidelines for nursing homes and long-term care facilities Friday night after President Trump declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak. The guidelines now urge facilities to restrict all visitations except for "certain compassionate care situations, such as end of life situations." What kind of stimulus should Congress pass to rescue the economy? Nearly 80 million jobs in the US economy are at high or moderate risk today, according to analysis in the last week from Moody's Analytics. That's more than half of the 153 million jobs in the economy overall.
