The Wuhan Coronavirus, the active impeachment of a sitting US president, an earthquake and volcanic eruption in the Philippines, floods in Indonesia, the death of Kobe Bryant, magnitude 7.7 earthquakes in the Caribbean and even my homeland down under has been on fire and then buried in ice and then on fire again so yeah the first month of 2020 is really trying its best to kill us all I guess what we are here for is to explore what all of these things mean to an economy both at a local and global level.
