This week we speak to Mark Harmsworth, the Director for the Center of Small Business at Washington Policy Center. He explains the impacts of COVID-19 on the state of the economy and small businesses in Washington state.
This was recorded live on February 25 as part of WPC's Virtual Solutions Series, a new weekly program meant to keep our supporters engaged and informed in this interesting time.
The COVID-19 crisis has federal, state and local governments making key policy decisions. WPC researchers have been examining how the pandemic is impacting each of their areas of study and where appropriate, offering recommendations for reform. In this online event, Dr. Stark will talk about his recommendations for expanding our health care capabilities and WPC’s Small Business Center Director Mark Harmsworth will discuss what reforms our state should enact to help small businesses weather this storm and recover quickly in the aftermath.
