Re: The Day After

Alternatively, you can also read some Adam Smith who would be furious about the current state of the economy, partially because of its pervasive rent-seeking, but also because of how it produces misery despite all its incredible wealth: No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the gr...

Re: The Day After

But really, if you think that "class warfare" is some communist psy-op, I highly recommend this well-researched article from the editor of a conservative right-wing American Affairs Journal that initially supported Trump. He talks about the inefficiency of the modern economy and about the greed and ...

Re: The Day After

Implying there's no "class warfare": last week the US and UK elites were literally suggesting to let some people die to keep the stock prices from falling. The US leftism is also on the rise and I'm not talking about all those center-right Democrats that the Republicans tend to call "the left", I me...

Re: The Day After

Hopefully less globalization and Just-in-Time production for essential goods. But who am I kidding, this would require a cut in profits.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

you can not leave your medical workers and first responders on the first days or weeks, and expect this shit to end well. who in the United States is going to support those "magic ventelators" that are being produced, if your employees are all sick by then? I'm scared that the US will be hit like a...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Here's a real-life example how a single beach in Florida could spread the virus all over the country after a spring break (and, probably, many LatAm countries but they have only US mobile data):

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

According to the "Total confirmed cases of COVID-19" chart here , most countries (including Chile) currently have their cases doubling every 3 days. But it's about 2.5 days for the US with over 100k cases already. If nothing changes there, the whole population will get exposed to it in less than a m...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The outbreak in Osorno that makes 58% of the total cases in Los Lagos is tied to a religious group that decided to continue congregating.

Re: Quarentines and fines

Tomorrow morning there is going to be panic buying in every supermarket and farmacia in the 7 comunas. Social distancing will go to hell. They were still dithering over whether delivery will be allowed. I have enough supplies for the two of us for a week. But not everyone has that luxury. Let's hop...

Re: Curfew nation wide 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

And considering how many ignorant little millenials are out there think they should be able to do what they like and damn everyone else (even their own grandparents). Come on, the youngest millennials are 24 now (1996) while the oldest ones (1981) are turning 40 next year! 👴 Most partying people sh...

Re: Curfew nation wide 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

I think it's an unjustified imposition on freedom. Freedom can wait a month, especially the freedom of the irresponsible fools who go out sick or party during an epidemic because they got "bored at home". I have a suspicion that East Asian countries manage all of this better because their cultures ...
