The COVID pandemic has had a tremendous impact on everyone around the world. While experts agree that the occurrence of a subsequent pandemic is only a matter of time, significant advancements have been made in the health and safety lane of pandemic preparation – with private-public sector activities researching vaccine development processes and associated best practices management. While that is critical to combatting whatever pandemic may be around the corner, lessons learned from the global economic support plans are also incredibly important to identify and document- particularly for the small business community that employs the majority of the American workforce. The Paycheck Protection Program became the most recognizable component of the US response – with a price tag of approximately $800 billion. This discussion will examine the process under which this program was developed, its successes and challenges, and provide for some comparative analysis of other global models.
