>>278011>I bet Trump will do anything to start vaccinating people before the elections if only so that he would get a bump in the polls.
nah quite the opposite, my guess is his advisors are telling him explicitly to not rub the Qtard boomers (muh vaccine is NWO microchip from bill gate to collectivize your toothbrush), tinfoil hatters, anti vaxx karens, "but muh freedumb" lolbertarians, and your run of the mill contrarian who constitute a good chunk of his most loyal voters
he could have forced a country wide mask executive order or at least tweeted about it but he always kept vague about the issue and left it to the state representative to decide
this video is fake but it capture the ideahttps://twitter.com/nebuuchadnezzar/status/1289559169725390849?s=21>the recovery is going to be fairly smooth because the core problem was not economic to begin with
yes i agree although my nuance was more on the how long will it take to gain max momentum?
maybe we'll get 80% in 1 months and the remaining 20 in 6 months
maybe we'll get 80% in 1 year and the remaining 20 in 5 years
that's a wobble period
the thing is small businesses that have already operated under quarantine will get back on their feet better, but what about the rest? it has evolved during the quarantine and it'll be hard to evolve back considering how people have already adapted the old ways
here's a couple of (exaggerated) examples
a lot of people started working from home, what about car and oil industry?
a lot of people have taken the habit of cooking at home instead of going to restaurants or fast food, what about their businesses?
i'm not saying their businesses are finished, but the re adaptation to back to normal won't necessarily happen in a homogeneous fashion hence why the 80/20 above
the fallout wont necessarily be cleaned in 3 month as you think
but i'm not saying it'll take 10 years+ to get it back, just that we have a certain wobble period ahead of us where china can (and most likely will) make better recovery and progress than america
in other words if we had projection graphs of pre corona of american power falling down and china/iran/russia rising up then instead of being a smooth curve, it has a small step for the year 2020: a new parameter that has changed the projected imagined future, ever so slightly but still significantly
so now instead of thinking that china will overtake usa in a distant future, that future became abruptly slightly less distant in 6 months
we can even ask ourselves what new shenanigans does the future has in reserve?>but when it comes to infrastructure this place 30 years behind first world nations
ah i see israel is finally integrating into the middle east :^)>they still haven't fully opened Tel Aviv-Jerusalem(<200km) high speed rail despite working on it since 2001(!)
heh i wouldn't overblow it all that much, in this day and age of cars for everyone creating new rail lines isn't always the biggest justifiable priority in budget especially when there's no industrial incentive
not saying that corruption and ineptness aren't a big factor though>you can hop on a train from Paris to Barcelona
they're old railways (in a time where there was no cars it was far easier to justify the building up of the rail network) between capitals of different countries, and don't think that all trains in europe (especially the south) are new generation high speed from built in the 21 century
a lot of the shit still in service is from the 70's or 80's>Or from Beijing to Shanghai in 4 hours
completely different position here where china has understood that the backbone to economy and industrial growth is strong infrastructure and they've been really modernizing that since the 90's
