Think about Vegas how do you open up a Casino? How do you open up a resort? How can you have a show? Blackjack the dealer sits directly across from you. Craps what do you do a table of one? So table games basicly gone. Ok how about slots remove two machines for every one machine? Pools limit the number of people? Forget about pool parties like Temptations Sundays at Luxor. Do you have only stage acts with again maybe a third of tickets only able to be sold?
I dont get what will be accomplished by rushing this
Apparently I hit a nerve here.Who cares if capitalism will recover? Do you eat capitalism? Do you have time to wait until it does?
I don't care about ideology. I see societies that were wealthy, and yet mostly failed to protect themselves from a danger they knew could come.
A fantastic success of capitalism. Everyhing is a success, even famine.
BTW, criticizing capitalism DOES NOT MEAN endorsing the only other system you can think of.
They do resort to slave even if that's illegal and legally punishable... Most of the times, they wouldgo broke becaue they can't really afford paying them fully.
Stop thinking that everything other than US capitalism is Government-decided sovietic 5-year plans. There is a world in between, and also sideways.
Covid-19 is not a black swan. It was predictable.
In the meantime, many may die. This is why I say the system has many flaws that should be addressed. People do not eat capitalism.
This is not a movie, nobody gets a plot armour.
Let it run wild, let people die in the corridors of hospitals, and you'll see those who are still healthy abandon their jobs to try and save themselves and their families; and f*ck the businesses. And bye to the economy.
Wow just wow. I mean thank God people told her no. Then her incredulity that Anderson was confused by her statement that Las Vegas should be a control group because she had offered but it was rejected. What's hilarious us her answer of would you put yourself at risk "I have a family"
Farmers make products and sell em to distributors, distributors sell products to grocery stores, food processors, restaurants, etc... all of those sell their products to consumers. Yes you DO eat capitalism, how else do you do farming on industrial level?Do you eat capitalism?
Sorry, but no, you really didn't.Apparently I hit a nerve here.
I think this is just using a word to justify your faith in a word, basically. It's ideology at its peak.Capitalism is human reciprocity acting on a societal level.[...]Capitalism is human nature
Given the definition you give of Capitalism, it's true. It's the definition that is wrong.The only other alternative is forcing people to trade their labor/time against their will.
I said it was predictable, not predicted.Show me the proof that COVID was predicted. I have yet to see it in this thread.
And after this sentence, I am the communist? Oh for fox's sake.This isn't a movie, we have a pretty good idea of what the death rate. I may die from it, but society as a whole is more important than my life.
The economy, a century ago, was not at all comparable to the interconnected global economy we have now.The Spanish Flu runs counter to your prediction. The economy kept running despite the devastation.

It definitely is not "human nature" or "human reciprocity" or any of that new-agish mumbo-jumbo
You are correct. However, it is the closer to the basic primitive instinct of "do thing, get reward". Carrot and stick, bell and saliva, take your pic.It definitely is not "human nature" or "human reciprocity" or any of that new-agish mumbo-jumbo
You can’t fight in here, this is the war room!But this is the COVID thread.
Finally! I had been wondering how long it would take for some hate-preaching “Christian” MFer to Blame The Gays (tm).Pat Robertson blames coronavirus on same-sex marriage
Ah, you meant forward-looking numbers? Carry on.My bad 40-70% not 50.
Depending on how you feel about CBS I suppose
