Jeremy Schwartz talks to his WisdomTree colleagues about the international response to COVID-19. They start the show discussing Japan's low numbers of Coronavirus cases and their economy's excess demand for labor. CEO of WisdomTree Japan Jesper Koll explains that COVID-19 is actually changing cultural behavior in Japanese corporations which is something Abe couldn't even do. He also adds that Japan's largest trading partner, China, is engaging in a V shaped recovery and that provides enormous support. Plus they discuss allocation to private equity companies in Japan.
