Destroying The Economy Will Create A Different Public Health Crisis

“Just a couple weeks post-shutdown, the coronavirus talking points have settled in. ‘Listen to the doctors’ is front and center, as journalists and elites obsessing over doomsday predictions beg us not to put ‘profits over people.’ Citizens concerned about the economic fallout are not just asking for a cost-benefit analysis of ‘lives or livelihoods,’ however, but a recognition that public health and the economy are deeply linked. Shutting down the latter may severely strain the former, and the concerns extend well beyond health insurance coverage.”  Georgi Boorman, “Destroying The Economy Will Create A Different Public Health Crisis,” The Federalist, April 6, 2020.
