David Sussman, Founder and CEO of Valcor Worldwide joins Jason Hartman in discussing insights into what is going on with small-medium sized business, real estate, and the impact of COVID-19. David suggests that mainstream media has narrowed its focus on Coronavirus and the 2020 election; meanwhile, it hasn’t covered much to any of the potential economic tsunamis we face.
