Most of these billionaires of course have most of their wealth "tied up" in stock etc.  Few have it in liquid form.  Some could sell enough stock to have it liquid if they wanted without causing the value of their holdings to collapse.

All models are wrong, some models are useful.  I don't know of a better model even if this one is off.

I dashed out to Kroger, they are OUT of the usual stuff that comes from Central America, out.  They were running low on other stuff as well.  This was during the hour reserved for old folks and most shoppers were 30ish.

About half were wearing masks or scarves of some sort.
I just found it amusing that the papers like WaPo and NYT went out of their way to find experts to dispute the (very worst case) model that the White House Task Force chose to adapt.

This, after publishing article after article blasting the White House Task Force for downplaying the whole thing.

Everybody playing politics with lives in the balance.  Same as it ever was I suppose.

Yeah, some things never change in that regard. "We" just need to have the ability to see through it all.

People criticize this and condemn that constantly. WRT this virus, it's all so premature. There is no need to endlessly comment now, let alone judge.

History will judge. That's what history does.

Yes, there will be time to review what happened and note where "we" should have done better, that is necessary.  Right now, everything is in flux and too much is uncertain and unclear.  If we focus more on what to do NOW and less on what should have been done THEN, we probably are better off collectively.

That’s their gig. They were downplaying it from the very beginning and even called the ban on incoming Chyna travel both racist and an overreaction but are now quick to say of course that things weren’t done fast enough.

Lots of lessons to be learned here.  Hopefully we can apply them appropriately.

I believe I said it before on this board, I think we're actually lucky that this virus isn't more deadly than it is.  It's allowing us to pressure-test our emergency response capability, and we're finding that we have a LOT of gaps.

If this virus were as communicable as it currently is, but as deadly as ebola or something like that, we'd be in EXTREMELY bad shape.

Never thought it was possible, but it appears a YouTuber might’ve just cracked the coronavirus origin case. This guy is an American that has lived in China for the last 10+ years and worked as an English teacher/translator and speaks, reads and writes Mandarin. He even married a Chinese woman and lived in China with her family for years.

Everyone should watch this video. Makes a very compelling case that this thing happened accidentally in a lab and the damn CCP covered it up. CCP is even more at fault than I thought.

Matt Painter's agent, Buddy Baker, lost both of his parents last Sunday to COVID-19 complications apparently just minutes apart. 

https://www.si.com/college/purdue/basketball/sports-agent-buddy-baker-parents-die-covid-19

They'd been married 51 years, and apparently both were in good health before this struck.

Very sad...

Also heard that here in California, it's been detected in two different assisted living facilities in Long Beach. Hopefully they caught it before it's going to spread, but I doubt it the way this thing has been going.

Everything I've read from scientists says this does not have any of the hallmarks of a human engineered virus.  Every "rumor" from nonscientists (nearly) says they think it was bioengineered.

There have been quite a few articles on MSM that seek to discredit the IHME model. They even cite experts.
Discredit how, that it's too conservative or that it's overstating the numbers?

I personally think their numbers are low. Partly because it assumes we'll have national social distancing in place through the end of May--and presumably that people follow them--and I think there are a lot of places in this country where people are being morons about this.

People are being morons?  Come on, how  can that be possible?  When did you discover this?

Ten percent never get the word.  I would bet ten percent of the US population has not heard anything about the virus.
