Today in Global Small Business: Staying Apart to Stay Healthy

What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:
  • Visit The World Bank website to see what they are doing to treat – sustain economies and protect jobs – during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are working together to fund research for COVID-19 treatments as the pandemic continues to spread.
  • Quote of the week relating to the COVID-19 outbreak: “It’s very tough to say to people, ‘Hey keep going to restaurants, go buy new houses, ignore that pile of bodies over in the corner, we want you to keep spending because there’s some politician that thinks GDP growth is what counts,’” Gates said. “It’s hard to tell people during an epidemic … that they should go about things knowing their activity is spreading this disease." – Bill Gates
  • New OECD outlook on the global economy.
  • A national defining moment – what historians will say about COVID-19.
  • Staying apart to stay healthy during the COVID-19 crisis.
