STRIKE ONE: The Lockdown.
The closer came off the bench and threw “high heat” at the economy. Regardless of who created the COVID-19 virus, infection rates, actual virus-related deaths, our bungled management, and the ulterior motives that affected the pandemic and response, individuals and the U.S. economy must live with the consequences.
Strike one delivered:
a) 40+ million newly unemployed American workers in three months. A disaster!
b) Thousands or millions of devasted businesses. Another disaster.
c) Bankruptcies for small and large businesses and individuals.
