America’s C-19 coronavirus chaos shutdowns lasted “way too long” and business probably should have started a couple of wks ago, and as a result, “it is going to be a really hard Summer,” economist Steven Moore said in a TV interview on Monday.
“The good news is that we’re starting to see 20 states that are opening up their states in a very smart way,” Mr. Moore said. “Obviously, saving lives and keeping people healthy is the most important thing, but we can do this in a way that actually gets businesses up and running.”
Mr. Moore said he does believe there will be a “light at the end of the tunnel,” at the end of the Summer, but until then, times will be tough.
“I do think those states that open up quickest, those tend to be the southern states like Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Tennessee, and some of those midwestern states, like Iowa and Nebraska, those states, I think are going to see a faster recovery,” Mr. Moore said.
Mr. Moore said he agree the shutdowns made the “cure worse than the disease” when it came to the shutdowns that took place.
“I mean, we are not going to know the exact answer to that, but when you look at 30-M people unemployed, it is going to be hard to get those people back to work,” said Mr. Moore.
Have healthy day, Keep the Faith!
