Biden seen as ‘strongest challenger in modern history’ as protests, coronavirus send Trump reeling

The race for the White House has turned decisively in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden, predictive betting markets show, with a convergence of negative developments weighing on President Donald Trump, who until recently was seen as an overwhelming favorite.

Bettors on Smarkets, U.S. Bookies and Oddschecker are all forecasting Biden is now the odds-on favorite to win in November, an outcome that market observers have suggested investors can live with given his comparatively moderate policy stances. 

Smarkets sees the chances of a Biden win at 51% compared to Trump’s 43%; meanwhile, Oddschecker says Trump’s chances have taken a “significant hit” in recent days. In spite of both candidates being hobbled by gaffes and stumbles, Biden has managed to solidify his electoral support in a way that has given him a sizable — if not commanding — lead in most major polls.

It’s a long road ahead for the U.S. economy

As of Wednesday, all 50 states had begun to loosen coronavirus-related restrictions in some form or fashion. But the road ahead for the U.S. economy coming out of this pandemic induced recession is a long one.

And according to economists at Bank of America Global Research, things will be even more challenging than initially thought.

“The damage to the economy from this historic shock has been hard to grasp,” the firm wrote in a note to clients published Wednesday. “Indeed, we now believe we have understated the extent of the decline and are revising down the path of GDP.”

The firm now sees the recession playing out in three phases: lockdown, transition, and recovery.

Bank of America thinks the

We’re facing ‘the worst economic contraction’ in modern history: Economist

The US economy is facing the worst contraction in modern history — and a “confidence shock” will make the recovery slow, says one economist.

Frances Donald, head of macro strategy at Manulif, predicts GDP this quarter could shrink by a whopping 20% amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are going to see, without hyperbole, the worst economic contraction in modern economic history. It will be likely double digits,” Donald told Yahoo Finance. “We are not looking for growth to come back online really until the fourth quarter of this year.”

The latest jobless claims show more than 4.4 million Americans filed for first time unemployment last week. Since the spread of the outbreak, more than 26 million Americans have filed for unemployment insurance as companies big and small have laid off or furloughed employees and shuttered commerce.

“What worries me as an economist is that we can give people their jobs

‘Modern Family’ actor on why Hollywood is more insulated from coronavirus crisis than restaurants

The coronavirus has disrupted multiple U.S. industries — and Hollywood is not immune.

Emmy award-winning actor Ty Burrell, who recently wrapped an 11-year run on ABC’s “Modern Family,” spoke about the impact in an interview with Yahoo Finance. He explained that although it’s a difficult time for entertainment, the industry is much more protected compared to other sectors.

“I will say that one of the differences between this and the food and beverage industry [for example] is that our world, as long as you’ve worked enough, is unionized — and there is some help there,” he said.

Hollywood unions applauded Congress’ passage of the $2 trillion stimulus package at the end of last month, which greatly expanded unemployment benefits for countless industry workers who lost their jobs as a result of increased coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions.

“This is creating an unusual situation in production going forward,” Burrell said, predicting that
