An Entrepeneur’s Perspective on the Pandemic Stimulus

My friend Bo recently shared this quote with me

“There are no atheists in foxholes, and there are no capitalists in a crisis.”

I am stunned by what I have read about the government stimulus. While I am poised be “given” a significant chunk of money both personally and for my small business, I think both of these giveaways are terrible ideas.

The Remedy to the Economic Pandemic

This is a follow-up to my last post about the massive economic problems I see our country facing and how freezing the US economy to where it was a couple weeks ago might be a potential remedy.

A Solution to the Pandemic Economic Problem

I’ve been thinking about the economic problems we are going to face as a country, and it scares me. What we are doing now will save people’s lives, but is going to have a huge impact on how we live our lives for the next few years.

All the big solutions which seem to get press during this pandemic are government based. But I think, especially in the USA, that the real power has to come from the people. Not the city government, not the state government, not the federal government. From me and from you.
