Coronavirus Podcast: Recession Lessons


The economic damage from the coronavirus could last for years

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After more than a week of wrangling, Monday morning Oregon Governor Kate Brown ordered people to stay home and businesses in the state who can’t comply with social distancing to shutter.

It is an effort to slow the coronavirus pandemic — at a time when the long-lasting damage to Oregon’s economy is just beginning to spread.

KOIN 6 News anchor Ken Boddie stops by to talk about his conversation with economist Robert Whelan.

He provides some perspective on the recession we are already in and some lessons from history about how we might be able to get out.
