Newt’s World – Episode 254: How the Chinese Benefited from the PPP

During the pandemic, as shutdowns prevented businesses from operating at full capacity, the federal government stepped in to assist small business owners with loans, known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), to help them stay afloat.
