I will give them another week or two to get their shit together
Their economy can't function without truly capitalistic nations to leech off of.
Gonna disagree here. Not saying it's a hoax, but we're in the infancy of numbers on this. It's a new virus. No one really knows jack shit about it. I think some of the models pumping out 2.2M are obscene and outright bull shit. Not sure why or the end goal, but the math doesn't add up.
So he needs to use some psychology here, and not make it about him. That's pretty close to impossible for him, becasue if it's successful, he wants credit. THat's so much more important to him than helping America.
This is bad news for the U.S. housing market as rising unemployment will put off buyers even if mortgage rates remain low. This could eventually lead to lower sales and force sellers to reduce prices, triggering the next U.S. housing market crisis.
2020 is going to go down in history as the worst fucking year of this fucking millennia so far
It looks worse now. 6.6 million filed for unemployment last week which would throw the scaling on your chart all off. That’s 10 million newly unemployed in two fucking weeks!
Not sure why. If we were ready like Korea and Germany, we could have avoided a disaster in deaths and economy..
The question of course for anyone who doesn't have pretzel logic is, was it worth imploding the economy to go from a miserable 2.2+ million dead to a manageable 81,000?
I'm curious Patrick, what turned you from being an awesome voice for overpriced housing to a troll who spreads harmful misinformation?
Public health experts have warned that travel bans are not effective at stemming the spread of a virus and can make responding to an outbreak more challenging.“From a public health perspective, there is limited effectiveness. And then there are a host of other reasons why they can actually be counterproductive,” said Catherine Worsnop, who studies international cooperation during global health emergencies at the University of Maryland.The World Health Organization, which declared the outbreak a global health emergency this week, has recommended against any travel or trade restrictions in response to the outbreak. Member countries, however, do not have to comply with that guidance.“Although travel restrictions may intuitively seem like the right thing to do, this is not something that WHO usually recommends,” said Tarik Jašarević, a WHO spokesperson. “This is because of the social disruption they cause and the intensive use of resources required,” he added....“People want their government to do something when these outbreaks are happening, and adopting a border restriction is a visible policy that people think works,” Worsnop said.Enacting such a ban would go directly against the recommendation of the WHO, which has said countries must inform the organization of any travel restrictions they put in place.
PANIC!Wait, 3 percent of 1 percent?
