In this week's FinCap Friday, we explore the latest news about the stimulus package approved by the US senate to provide relief for Americans during this economic downturn that has resulted after the spread of coronavirus. Many questions arise like, "What will the package offer?" and "How much money will the total package cost the government?" You can dig into this week's episode below to find all of those details and more! 

NEW!!! Edpuzzle is now provided for each FinCap Friday. The Edpuzzle version of each week's FinCap Friday will be linked in the FinCap Friday Library (columnn H).

If you're short on time, try our simplified FinCap Friday (No Tech) with the questions embedded right into the slide deck!


Check out all of our FinCap Friday episodes here. They're not date-dependent so any of the 50+ in our catalog dating back to August 2018 can work throughout the coming year!
