I wouldn't bet against you on that, TT. Shitheads like Trump, Mnuchin, and Patrick never actually understand that the foundation of "the economy" are the men and women who work in the factories, the offices, the fields, who drive the trucks and the trains, who build the houses and the skyscrapers, who then take that money and buy food, clothing, houses, pay rent / mortgages, buy cars, gas, go to movies, buy toys, etc.TrueTexan wrote: Tue Mar 24, 2020 10:48 am
I agree, But when you have the likes of Trump and TX Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick screaming to open the economy and damn what the effects will be the market will go up then it will fall faster and deeper than ever. I see the rise today as a grab and then a fall with profit taking.
Without them doing that, there is no "economy" at all. And if they will get sick and die in horrible pain they will either stay home instead, or we'll have what happened when De Soto went through what would be several southern states and down the Mississippi, leaving smallpox, measles, and chicken pox in his wake the locals had no resistance to, and it wiped all their societies and cultures out. You can't have an "economy" without people.
