A few weeks ago in May, the US treasury announced a record high $96 billion quarterly refunding driven by the Covid-19 emergency stimulus. This compares to $84B from last quarter, an amount which held for the previous 5 quarters.

MBA Blind Love

In March, an MBA edition of Love Is Blind, called MBA Blind Love, began among students of some of the top business schools in the U.S. These schools included Stern, Columbia, Wharton, Yale, Kellogg, Booth, Sloan, HBS, Stanford, and Yale…just to name a few.

  • “I can finally put a dent in my long list of Netflix and Hulu shows to watch.

Dating in the Time of Corona

Since the lockdown started, my Instagram has become a showcase of couples in confinement. Every time I tap the pink and orange Insta-icon, I am greeted by a flood of couples bonding over baking bread, puzzling through an enormous jigsaw, or even announcing they have tied the knot at the courthouse in the wake of a cancelled wedding. Times may be tough, they say, but together, they will get through this.
