i may be way off, but the reopening of america seems to me a moment that may be in future history books, assuming there is a nation still publishing history books in the future.
It's a moment where either deaths will level off or decline, in which case the trumpian/republican forces who argue conspiracy theories, deep state, nanny-state government diatribes and a general sense that the experts can't be trusted will prevail, or deaths will trend upwards, in which case the pro-government pro-science-based types will probably not prevail but at least be able to say, jeez, we tried to warn you, while the nutjobs blame china or bill gates or anyone but themselves and double down on even crazier conspiracy theories about democratic coroners artificially inflating death rates to hurt trump. it'll be like the election fraud arguments, but with fake corpses.
not sure how this all plays out, or what people really believe deep down, but it seems like this very moment in time could be an actual important event in american history.
the subheading in the bookchapter might be, "The Great National Science Experiment", or "Money v. Life, a Risky Balance". well, we have time to work out the text.
I for one am very interested to see what happens. I expect most people wont suddenly head out to party, as I still get the heebie jeebies if the supermarket's too crowded. thats why i only shop at barons, a bit overpriced , but lots of space.
But enough people probably will cut loose that they'll be able to give us a decent run on the experiment.
for the record, I am not on the side of death, I do not want many people to die, but my gut tells me this is going to be a decent sized culling, and that the upward trend of deaths (assuming that happens) is going to hang over the market and put pressure on growth.
assuming you agree, and don't want to short the market, because you believe the Fed will resort to just buying stock shares to prop up prices, where does your extra cash non 401k investment money go.
