The COVID-19 pandemic threw a gigantic wrench into supply chains across the globe, prompting a public push to buy local that remains to this day. Many of us also left our offices and learned to work from home.

But with vaccinations underway and a sense of normalcy starting to return, many wonder will this all last? Has our economy been forever changed?

On this week’s episode of Tying It Together With Tim Boyum, we talk with Scott Lincicome, senior fellow in economic studies at the Cato Institute.

Lincicome is a Raleigh resident and lecturer at Duke University who studies this for a living and joins us to provide his take, plus give insight in to North Carolina’s trade outlook under the new administration and post pandemic.
