Global Wealth Advisors Financial Planning and Wealth Management

In just the last month, words like flatten the curve and social distancing have been added to our vocabulary. The effects of COVID-19 crisis management on the economy have become one of the top concerns among our clients.

In this episode of 𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙈𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝙈𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙪𝙢, host Tom Kennedy chats with former Navy Seal John Choate about the government’s response to coronavirus and crisis management. They consider whether there is an over- or under-reaction by the media and public, and they discuss best-, base- and worst-case outcomes, as well as China and conspiracy theories.

You will also learn whether you will need to protect yourself from civil unrest and apply military survival skills to help you cope with the economic challenges and fear of the unknown. For the latest information on COVID-19 and the economy, you can follow our blog at
