Framing the problem The question on my mind today is about best case economic outcomes. How does a country get through the Covid-19 pandemic with the least bad economic outcome? And in thinking about that question, I want to do three things. I want to talk about this utilizing as little 'science' as possible. Because I am not a scientist, avoiding the epidemiological models as much as possible makes sense.
Personally don't see any way out of this that isn't progressive herd immunity. Governments doing their best to flatten the curve between loosenings of the lock down. That's not good for those in high risk groups in the short term because they'll have to either voluntarily weigh up the risks of how they approach loosening periods or be forced to.
