Pandemic: What I would do
By Rod Van Mechelen
2020 Olympia, WA -- My favorite fringe lunatic is Clif High, of Half Past Human. My 4th or 5th favorite fringe lunatic is Martin Armstrong, of Armstrong Economics. Clif says CV19 is a big deal. Marty says not so much. Who do I believe? Both of them.
Marty says that, relatively speaking, it won't kill many. Clif says in absolute terms, it will kill many. Marty says the political response is killing the economy. Clif notes (no pun intended) that the economy is a dead man walking just looking for something to knock it over. They're both right.
Were it up to me, I would direct the government agencies to put out (useful and accurate) information people need to harden their immune systems and to protect and mitigate against CV19. (Information such as Clif has shared.)
Then, as the Chinese supply chain is broken due to the lock down in China, I would focus on ramping up domestic manufacturing. But I wouldn't resort to "stay home, stay well," or quarantines or anything like that.
Wouldn't more people die as a result? Yes. But people are going to die, anyway.
If you're incapable of protecting yourself, either you're a ward of the state or in a skilled nursing facility, in which case you should expect expert care. Or you're dim, in which case it sucks to be you. Or you're a parasite, in which case good riddance.
As there are millions of parasites in the west, including the US, we could expect millions of parasites to die. Too bad, but if the economic engine of America hadn't been made so strong by people who are not parasites, and if the looters hadn't siphoned off so much wealth to support them, the parasites would either already be dead, or would have been forced by circumstances to be productive. So, millions of parasites dying would just be house cleaning.
Not wishing ill on anybody (with the possible exception of asparagus farmers), I would not celebrate their deaths. Nor would I mourn their passing. Who, after all, would miss the parasites?
Under the present circumstances, however, with businesses being closed and probably going bankrupt and the economy intentionally shut down, many who would otherwise survive will probably now die. Millions more will be driven into poverty and dependence on the state.
Bad as that is, here's the kicker: CV19 is just one crisis. Between now and 2032, there will be many more. (And possibly a really horrific one in 2046.) So, knocking out the economy, now, and weakening our society further, only makes you that much more vulnerable to what's coming next. And next. And next.
Welcome to the 21st Century. If hard times create strong men, and strong men create good times, and good times create weak men, then expect the next several years to be the hard times that will create the strong men who will, eventually, create good times.
