Coronavirus

"Going to die soon" is almost the defining characteristic of being elderly.

And if an 80 year old gets it, chances are still small they'll die from it.

The gasoline market

It may have just been a local company doing the consumer-level service. But I def saw it on TV News. Peeps on camera super-smug about getting cheap gas fill-ups.

The gasoline market

About a decade or two ago, I remember a thing on the TV news. People had purchased gasoline "futures," that may not be the correct term. They had bought this gas (5k gallons, or whatever) when it was $1.50 per gallon, and were then taking delivery, one fill-up at a time, when gas was over ...

Post-Corona Economy

189577 I feel that Gordon is being a bit alarmist. But, there is a real disk of stagflation, inflation or other long term economic ills as a result of this. Getting back to normal may be hard. Don't buy the administration line. But don't be chicken little either. Btw, China owns $1.1T of US debt. T...

189573 If only everyone was healthy and under 50, then your numbers would be accurate. 1. They aren't my numbers, they are CDC numbers. 2. They are accurate. Most of those who are dying were already compromised by another illness. Also CDC data. 3. If the numbers are wrong, they are wrong on the si...

As in office buildings and such? No clue. I just see them empty all over the place. I see this as the camel that broke their back. I guess they had per-existing issues and COVID killed them! Ha, good comparison. I'll take that as the best theory I've heard so far, since I have no other data to say ...

189568 I have high blood pressure and diabetes. But I'm on meds, and have everything under control. Living a relatively normal life. Then I get COVID. It ravages my system and I die from not being able to get oxygen into my system because my lungs are turned to mush. Or, my lungs are running at 40%...

I posted the source, that wasn't just my personal opinion. I've been adjusting my predictions as new information becomes ava...

189558 a lot of words that i actually read My takeaway from what you said is, "There are so many aid programs right now, everyone is fine... for now." This is correct, yes? I see lock downs happening until at least July 1. Just my personal wild-ass guess. I know of two restaurant chains t...

189556 I don't agree that this thread was needed. There's plenty of coronavirus related links in the current economy thread. I disagree with your disagree. Old economy paradigms are kaput, there's only what corona lock down is doing, now, and in the middle future. If things normalize in 2020, I pre...

Are there official numbers yet that back up the 50-skittles-leave you crippled (and you weren't already compromised)? I've been waiting for those numbers. All I've heard is, "I heard about a guy."

I think the previous "Bad Economy" thread is sort of defunct, because of the wildcard plague. Whether the lockdown was a good idea or not, the economy going forward is going to be in shades of what we're doing to it today, for a long time. So post all the direct economic effects from the c...
