GB Bulletin: How to Manage in a K-Shaped Recovery

Learn to Survive, Adapt, and Even Thrive

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is shaping the US economy and household budgets in many ways. One change that’s currently emerging is a new K-shaped recovery. Those on the top leg of the recovery are saving money while working from home, but those at the bottom are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table.

If you’ve found yourself on the bottom leg, it’s likely you got there at no fault of your own, but that doesn’t make it any less stressful. Still, if you’re experiencing a loss of income or are struggling to put food on the table, there are some things you can do so that you can survive, adapt, and even thrive through your financial emergency. Check out Goodbudget 911: Crash Course; it’s a free course designed to help you get through your emergency.
