In this extended Brief, NLW tells the story of the economy through five themes:

  • China stocks surge – but how much is it driven by Chinese state-sponsored media hype?
  • A tale of two cities – real estate in New York City and Hong Kong are telling very different stories
  • A global currency crisis in Lebanon – foodstuffs are up 100% in the last two weeks as the pound continues to falter
  • The COVID-19 ticker – daily cases continue to grow in the U.S. but deaths are declining
  • The cost of the U.S. losing its place in the world - from travelers turned away in Italy to decreasing capital inflows
  • Plus a bonus: what the Nasdaq all-time highs really mean
