Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Alicia Mazzara (1:52) of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities spoke with Mountain Money on the disproportionate way COVID impacts communities of color in the nation, particularly from an economic perspective. 

(19:44) In this episode, Mountain Money replayed an interview conducted in June 2020 Sven Beckert, professor of History at Harvard University.  Sven spoke about the historical relationship between capitalism and slavery and its impacts on the world we live in today.

(35:13) The hour ended with Nicole Thomas, owner of LatterDayBride, and Casey Metzger, Top Shelf Utah owner, about how the current COVID relief bill falls far short of the assistance they and other small businesses need.
