You can see the contours of Donald Trump’s plan to reopen the economy . It has 3 components -- 1st: force people back to work; if they refuse, they get cut off from any benefits, or fired. 2nd: create a “liability shield”, to protect against businesses getting sued. 3rd: use powers reserved for wartime to keep places open. 4th: trumpet the nightmarish figure of 100,000 projected deaths as a “great success” lowering the bar right into the abyss. That is why the plan to reopen the economy will backfire on several levels, producing second third & fourth waves of infection AND new peaks in the death toll, as people’s risked health becomes very, real. It will lead to further depression, as the one thing that’s needed most — investment and support — is replaced with coercion, control, bullying, and intimidation.This is how to kill an economy, my friends. And a lot of people, too.'
