6 Months into COVID

Colorado continues to grapple with COVID-19, its effects on our health and safety, the impacts to our children’s education, and our economy. Making sense of all the data can be overwhelming, which is why the Common Sense Digest is here for your listening pleasure.

Filling in for Chairman Earl Wright, President and CEO Kristin Strohm chats with Director of Policy and Research Chris Brown about a number of economic indicators. In a brisk half hour, Kristin and Chris discuss jobs and unemployment (including how the pandemic has more profoundly impacted women, and in particular, mothers), the difference in year-over-year sales tax collections, and why the pandemic has hit some communities harder than others. If you’re looking for a smart, concise summary of how the state is responding to the economic challenges of the pandemic, you are but a click away from this tremendous episode.
