Watching the Pandemic unravel I am reminded of a story an old friend, Dr. John, used to tell me;
A regular church goer, in the midst of an impending flood, was approached by a neighbour asking him if he would like help getting to higher ground. He replied, “I am awaiting a sign from the Lord”.
A few hours later with the flood waters rising to his front porch, “Local officials show up in a boat offering to take him to a place of safety. His reply, “I am awaiting a sign from the Lord”.
Several hours later, he’s perched on his roof. A helicopter flies up to him and through a loudspeaker says, “Sir we can fly you to safety.” He waved them away and yelled back, “I am awaiting a sign from the Lord”.
The floods rise, drowning the old guy.
He approaches the the pearly gates and cries, “But Lord, I was awaiting the sign!
To which the reply comes booming down, “I sent your neighbour, I sent your local officals, I sent a helicopter.”
You just can’t help those that won’t help themselves.

- A Modern Jubilee as a cure to the financial ills of the Coronavirus by Steve Keen. “Extraordinary measures are needed now to stop the health effects of the Coronavirus triggering a financial crisis that could in turn make the Coronavirus worse. All of these actions can be undertaken by Central Banks and financial regulators, once they have been given permission by governments.” We will require a reset in thinking to get through what’s coming. Business as usual will not work.
It will be easier to maintain some sanity with some preparation. Can’t speak about the rest of the GDP ( Generally Dumb People).
Keep on pressing on.
