Experts Weigh in on the Idea Idea of America Opening Up the Economy Soon

Everyone in America seems to have the same question when it comes to the economy.  How long can we go on like this?  President Trump supporters know that he built the economy to sustain itself for maybe another month in the worst-case scenario.  President Trump also stated, “America wasn’t built to stay closed.”  He is correct!  It’s not!

So far, the coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 9,000 Americans.  What makes everything unpredictable is how fast this virus spreads and how the public responds to social distancing.  The frustration between President Trump and Dr. Fauci is noticeable, especially when it comes to the Hydroxychloroquine drug.

In many ways, it is almost like Dr. Fauci doesn’t want the country to use the drug because he knows it works.  If it works, then America can open up its businesses again and prosper.

President Trump is pushing for this drug to be used for a possible cure, which has made outstanding results for those who had the virus.  They are better now.

Many of those who claim to be experts on the situation all seem to share stories of doom and gloom.  The longer they can keep this virus spreading and not curing it, the longer the economy will stay down.  So basically, the economy depends on the coronavirus.

Betsey Stevenson, a University of Michigan economist who worked on the White House Council of Economic Advisers under former President Barack Obama, stated, “Our ability to reopen the economy ultimately depends on our ability to better understand the spread and risk of the virus.  It’s also quite likely that we will need to figure out how to reopen the economy with the virus remaining a threat.”

Here is a game-changer, how about we listen to President Trump when he says, let’s use the medicine?  Oh yes, that’s right, if they cure the virus, then the economy will flourish again, and it gives Trump the upper hand again over the Democrats.  Oh, they don’t want that!

It is sad they rather see people suffer from their businesses and loss of jobs than to have America over this virus pandemic and the economy up and running again.  This is the world we live in, and the Democrats are more of a pestilence than the virus.

Most of the experts are revolving their suggestions toward a database rather than aggressive action.  R. Glenn Hubbard, a former top economist under President George W. Bush, says, “To determine when to restart activity we need more information.”

Simon Mongey, a University of Chicago economist, stated, “Without more testing, there’s no way that you could set a time limit on when you could open up the economy.  It’s going to have to depend on being able to identify people that have the coronavirus, understanding how readily those people can transmit the disease to others, and then kind of appropriately isolating people that are contagious.”

Let’s face it, if we listen to all these idiots, we will never open the economy back up ever again.  It’s almost like they want to study the mess we are in rather than put people back to work.  We have a drug that is 100 percent effective.  How about test that?

The only thing good we can say is everyone is waiting for the infection rate to crash before most put Americans in harm’s way.  There were times when the question was brought up if America should be under lockdown or not.

Adam Ozimek, the chief economist at Upwork, sums up almost every American’s thoughts on American businesses when he said, “I don’t think you can force hundreds of thousands of small business owners to voluntarily shut down and let failure happen to them.  They won’t do it, the public won’t support it, and frankly, I don’t think local authorities would stop them.”

The truth is, that statement is 100 percent correct.  There is only so much time American business owners will comply with when it comes to this mandate.  Once all resources are used up, the frustration of the American people will be overwhelming.  The Deep State would be better off allowing Doctors to freely prescribe Hydroxychloroquine because if they don’t, they will have a bigger problem than this virus on their hands.

Just look at China.  If the people of a communist nation rose against a government, who will automatically kill them, what makes the Deep State think any different about the Free World?
