So what is the news fit to print today?

KFC Suspends Its “Finger Lickin’ Good” Slogan Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Thank God, I was really concerned that the corporate programming from KFC might override the CDC and public health officials advice on not touching your face.

Burred deep in the above article is something very interesting, systemic risk. It is not something I have addressed in these fine emails, but now seems like a good time as any.

Now, according the soothsayers at Goldman, systemic risk is relatively low. I tend to agree – Bridgewater’s Alpha Fund imploded last week to little fanfare to counter-party firms, along with the rest of the market, but was not a catalyst for a market collapse.

The turbulence, lol – it is a crash, in the capital markets is caused by two things – corporate debt and a collapse in revenue from the virus.
