Folks, see what Mike writes:
The issue is that after a certain point — and I think it’s about three months — economic relations break in a way that cannot be mended. There will be no repair, only destruction. The economy isn’t a Windows 95 machine that can be rebooted when it crashes. It doesn’t work like that at all.
Mike is anything but a Trump fan, by the way. But he’s absolutely right. Maybe it’s a bit longer than 3 months but I’ve personally experienced the kind of disintegration of the economy that he’s talking about back in 1990. And, folks, he’s right. Our economy back then was a lot less complicated and interconnected, and it was still a total bastard trying to get it working again. People went completely nuts. Yes, it was a different situation but still there are gigantic similarities. Everybody was sent home overnight. Everything closed down. Even toilet paper shortages were part of it. I’m telling you, it’s not a game you want to play.
It’s not insane, immoral or Trumpist to care about this. And I’m not saying let’s all head back to work today. I’m saying let’s not pretend like this isn’t a very big deal.
