Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

It’s really high volatility right now, with still a bit of uncertainty, so I wouldn’t read too much into any particular day (esp on the upside)

The unemployment claim stats, while ginormous & unprecedented, were nonetheless expected (as of probably a week ago)

He didn't lose support when his good and easy to win trade wars ankled agriculture exports and killed manufacturing jobs. Why would this cost him anything?

Arguably, though, stagflation had significantly different inputs than what we have now, and what we have now is possibly even closer to the 1929-1930 situation than 2007-2008 was.

Someone said on twitter that Goldman Sachs is predicting negative twenty five percent (-25%) economic growth for the quarter, and also pointed out that in the aftermath of the USSR collapse it was only -15%.

My most unpopular opinion is that Tammy Duckworth is overrated.

Do mean McConnell is out of the Senate entirely (extremely unlikely given where Kentucky is now) or just no longer majority leader (maybe a 50/50 chance) (which is much higher than what I would have had it a month or two ago)
