The Wǒ Men Podcast is a discussion of life in China hosted by Yajun Zhang, Jingjing Zhang and Karoline Kan. Previous episodes of the Wǒ Men Podcast can be found here, and you can subscribe to Wǒ Men on iTunes here.

On a recent podcast episode, we discussed how Covid-19 changed the outlook when it came to China’s consumption boom. As a part of the generation that had taken supercharged economic development for granted and had never worried about financial stability, the potential impact of Covid-19 on the economy also requires us to rethink our personal finances.

On this episode, we have invited Jackie You — a former investment banker who previously joined us to discuss following your heart — returns to share her insights and experiences with us on how people in China are adapting to a new economic reality as well as some lessons that can be applied universally.
