I could go on and on about a multitude of issues that are anxiety-driven starting with William Barr but I won’t. What is the scariest thing right now is the Coronavirus, now called 2019-nCoV.
Is the US equipped for something like this? It appears that China is not although they are quite good at keeping information close to their chest. Just to prepare for a surge of this virus ripping through our shores is frightening but it is the economy that we should all be more attuned to.
As Trump and the Republican party have slowly (although not so slowly) worked on cutting us off from the world through immigration, trade, travel and more, having China under siege from a virus will prove the point that many economic experts have written about for some time. We are all connected.
Products are not being made in China, people aren’t going to work, items are not being shipped, and there is more. Coronavirus is creating havoc on the Chinese economy but the Chinese economy is also linked to the world’s economy. The longer this virus continues to rage, the reality of economic downfall looms large.
