    I just had a good look at a report of the measures 42 nations have taken to combat covid 19. The thing that really stands out is how relaxed the US restrictions are compared to elsewhere.

    Actually what Trump was very similar (before this even started) became inward looking, closing off trade, pushing nationalism over globalization.....this pandemic has accelerated it, via breaking down supply chains, closing international borders etc...….great fuel for the conspiracy theorists...

    Yes I mentioned this last week, except that there has been 10 million file for unemployment benefits in the last fortnight. Also concerning is that 700k jobs were lost in March prior to things really getting out of hand (typically that is +200k jobs) when 10 mio people filed for unemployment...
