Dr. Adalja and his colleagues have been talking about this for years and years, writing report after report. This virus isn’t going anywhere. We will be dealing with it for at least two more years. We need to find the right balance of controlling the virus and keeping the economy functioning.

Every mediocrity with the power to dispose of the property of his betters, by his willingness to devote his life to his inferiors, is the foulest of creatures. The double-parasite who lives on the sores of the poor and blood of the rich, whom men have come to regard as the moral ideal.
What I can control is the work that I do. To date nobody has tried to make me do anything other than that. Nobody. I want to say this loudly and clearly to anybody who is listening. Nobody owns me. I’m not owned by the left. I’m not owned by the right.
The Mother of All Demos was presented by Douglas Engelbart 52 years ago in San Francisco. Its goal was to show how technology could augment the capabilities of the human mind. For the first time in the history, the windows graphic user interface, hypertext, display monitor, word processing, file linking, keyboard and mouse were on display.
Because our prices are so low, the quality light is even brighter on us. We have to be even more transparent in our quality metrics than the person who is charging ten times a much. The average hospital infection rate, nationwide, is 3 – 6%, the average surgery center is about 2.6%, but in 2012, the infection rate at SCO was zero.
Gross Output proves that business supply chain spending is double that of consumer spending, not the other way around. The reason why GDP and CPI dominate Fed policy, academic research, and financial media is because consumers vote, politicians pander, and influence peddling pays well. In soft money, of course. The flip side is that private sector production pays for everything.
Murray’s 1973 book, The Libertarian Manifesto, “More than any other of his works, this book explains why Rothbard seems to grow in stature every year. His influence has vastly risen since his death, and why Rothbardianism has so many enemies on the left, right, and center.”
What Deutscher and Roark have done is expose the smallness of their detractors. By refusing to accept the arbitrary premise that human life is repugnant, they refuse to accept as guilt, their own existence. They refuse to accept that their freedom to create masterpieces is predicated on subservience to the public good. Their integrity is non-negotiable.
Now is a good time for us to imagine, what if those who work inside the cab of big rig or delivery van, ICU or urgent care clinic, warehouse or supermarket decided to go on strike? Most likely, they would be vilified by national and social media nitwits for price gouging.
Europe’s governments that made life difficult for traders tended to lose their business, and hence a tax base, to competing jurisdictions. Such losses motivated rulers to curb their predation and to allow businessmen room to maneuver.
