There you go with your motte-and-bailey defense again.

You did NOT say "that we're so privileged that we care about how much disasters cost."

You said that EVERYTHING in our country was about money.

If you're going to make statements like that, you need to be prepared to defend them or to admit that you were wrong.

But you try to have it both ways.
Well I say something that I think will be understood, but then it's horribly misconstrued.  It's my fault, I need to keep my audience in mind when posting.

Let me guess - they're still meaningless because nerd brain math stuff can't be trusted.

I guess we'll let the Ruskies do their own type of phase 3 and then maybe try it if it looks good

FroMan,

Understands economics, especially with the poor and impoverished.

What he doesn't want to admit, is that the pandemic is causing many more folks to become poor and impoverished and the ones that were, are becoming poorer.

this cannot be good for those people that were struggling to get by in the first place with a minimum wage job that was NOT a living wage, are now out of a job completely.  And others that had a job that paid a living wage or now working for minimum wage.

yes, rich folks are feeling the pain of the economic downturn, but it's hurting the poor much more.  Possibly to the point of death.

And what the other side fails to admit is that this economic pain isn't *only* the fault of government-mandated lockdowns. A lot of it is people avoiding travel, avoiding events, avoiding "going out" and contributing to the economy VOLUNTARILY.

If Purdue came to me and said "Brad, we need people in the seats in our stadium so it looks full for TV. We're going to offer you and wife $1000 each and outfit you fully in Boiler gear to root for the team, as long as you'll come to fill Ross-Ade", I'd say hell no. We're not even talking the idea of buying season tickets. I wouldn't go if you paid me right now.

So yeah, this pandemic is an economic shit sandwich. But it would be even without gov't enforced lockdowns, because once people saw the case and death rates skyrocket they'd stay home on their own.

This is where I disagree I think without the fear generated by the government and the media people would have treated this like any other epidemic and life would have gone on
