If given a choice, what would you choose?
Would you choose money over life or vice versa?
However stupid this question might have seemed in earlier days, it is today’s reality!
Personally, if I had a choice, which I kind of do for now, I would choose to stay alive instead of go out and try to save the economy.
This ain’t some age old survival of the fittest or any such thing. Until we can find a cure, a way to keep Covid-19 at bay, it is and will remain
“Survival of the Laziest”!
There are better ways to boost the economy than to start the air travel, trains, metros, buses, etc. Those aren’t ways of trying to boost the economy. Those are the ways that will assure lesser population.
These people also want to re-open schools and colleges! Why? For what particular purpose? It sure isn’t for educational purpose! There are hardly any students going to schools or colleges with a mindset of wanting to learn something new.
Why are the economists stupid?
I just know a few who weren’t/aren’t stupid like, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Raghuram Rajan, Paul Krugman, Milton Friedman and John Nash (he wasn’t an economist but he gave one such theory that changed the world of economics).
Today, the power to make financial decisions rests in the hands of idiots.
In India it most certainly does.
Anurag Thakur (Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs) said, “Coronavirus won’t have adverse impact on Indian Economy”.
When the price of onions was skyrocketing in the country, Nirmala Sitharaman (Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs of India) said, “I don’t eat much onion”.
And also that guy whose name shall not be spoken out loud. Because you never know, if I mention it, I might not wake up to a beautiful sunny morning tomorrow.
