i'm not saying now, or that anybody is more or less important, just that eventually there will be a crossover, because society can't just stop. Jobs have to be done, wealth has to be created otherwise all the systems will failJolle wrote: ↑Thu Apr 02, 2020 12:52 pmI don't agree with you. Yes it's terrible that my profession is changing, there will be I suspect, less events in the future and so be it. Our society is too fragile to so it seems. My job (or anyone in the entertainment industry) isn't more important then doctors that can't do their job because there are just too many ill people. This time it's not about the economy but about a healthcare system that can't cope with this amount of very sick people at once.
not a single one of my colleagues, companies or any stakeholders I know is calling for a reopening. Just the rich with acces to private hospitals.
So lockdown is a temporary thing, it can't be maintained until the epidemic is 'over'. i don't think any healthcare system could be big enough for a virus as contagious as this one, we can only react, minimise the risk and then in the end balance the risk from the pandemic against the risks from creating so much less wealth. Governments are printing money, but in the end that isn't wealth it's just a claim on wealth and there'll be less to go round. You have to have a house and food and energy whether you're working or not. So it's a rock vs a hard place, that'll have to be balanced
