You cannot deal with one without dealing with the other. The world just doesn't work like that. Whether the "economy" you look at is measured in US Dollars, Rupees, Tulips, Gold...it's always there because money is energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change forms. The oldest form of money is work.And we need to deal w/ this pandemic....the economy is a man made construct.
Without work the economic system (in any age) fails, and civilizations fall. Rome didn't burn overnight, it fell gradually over a period of years. The middle ages didn't happen overnight, we fell into it over a period of years. Plague or no plague it does not matter, if the world stops working progress stops. That is the scenario we're looking at.
It's a fallacy to think that you have to deal exclusively with one. The pandemic is real, but the damage to the economy is what is a man made construct.
Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Keep distant until whatever seasonal virus is out there is relegated to a non-issue. Get your vaccines if you're scared or high risk. That's it.
Also the elections were totally rigged in 2016. Call it the will of the force that Trump won. The fact that it wasn't resolved in 2017, 2018, 2019, or 2020 is on the 45th admin.
