    #056 - Anirban Basu, Sage Policy Group Chairman & CEO

    Spenser Villwock talks with expert construction economist at Sage Policy Group Chairman & CEO, Arniban Basu. They discuss the current impacts of the Coronavirus, COVID-19, on the economy, paying particular attention to how electrical and systems contractors in America can best act in the current time. Basu notes as a “short and vicious” V-shaped market reaction and steep recovery that is something unlike what we have experienced in recent time. The current economic disruption is due to a Supply Shock of the market, versus a Demand Shock, as it was in the Great Recession. The message that Basu shares is one of hope, optimism, yet a strong thread of realism of the current time and how contractors may not only survive, but thrive coming out of the COVID-19 period. Listen in to the podcast and gain terrific insights on something that will be written about in history books forevermore. #MeritShopStrong #WeAreIEC
