What'd You Miss This Week: Silence in the stands, the new reality for sports

Fanless sports, Sweden's controversial approach to COVID-19 and the morality of interventions. This week, George Pyne, the founder and CEO of Bruin Sports Capital, joined to talk about how the sports economy is adjusting to its new reality and preparing for a possible return without fans. Then Jens Nordvig, the founder and CEO of Exante Data, discussed what the data shows about Sweden's controversial approach to fighting the coronavirus outbreak without a lockdown. Finally, Adam Pritzker, the founder and CEO of Assembled Brands, came on to talk about his work ensuring small businesses receive their loans from the federal government as the $349 billion small business rescue program runs dry. At the same time, Columbia Law School professor Kathryn Judge explained why she thinks the government intervention to shield big companies from the pandemic will give rise to moral hazard.
