    What I heard from Professor Wolff in this presentation, give me the chills. I believe that this latter part of March and/or the early part of April 2020 will be the start of the recession. I believe that the recession has already started! The next 4 to 8 weeks get ready, already toilet paper is hard to buy at Sam Clubs and Wal Mart! What about other food products? Ben
