Handling the financials of the coronavirus, this week

Bill Radke reviews the week's news with New York Times correspondent Karen Weise, Seattle Times reporter Scott Greenstone and Crosscut reporter David Kroman.

Governor Inslee has announced that some low-risk home construction will be allowed to go ahead in Washington. This comes after complaints from republican legislators and protests at the capitol. Is this the right move?

Also, the Amazon tax is back on the table for city council, this time with it's earnings going towards Covid-19 relief efforts - what are the odds it will actually pass?

Congress has already passed another relief package - what's in that package, and what does it mean for Washington State? And why is Senator Mitch McConnell suggesting states go bankrupt?

Plus, Governor Inslee has said Washington will be hiring 1500 contact tracers. What is a contact tracer, and how could they help Washington reopen?

Finally, there are lots of things you shouldn't be doing right now. We go through a little covettiquette with our panelists.
