(Secular Common Sense) Bankers & Trump (Coronavirus)

Financial Markets Wall Street

I know a lot of you are down on capitalism, but this little note here that even the bankers don’t seem to like Trump very much is very funny, but also to the point.  About the idea of a big confab with Wall Street titans to open the economy: “I really don’t understand how they are communicating on this,” one CEO told POLITICO on condition that neither they nor their firm be named for fear of angering the White House. “He’s got to stop talking about turning the economy back on and start talking about making people feel safe, things that are happening around testing and the health care system. That’s the only way you will really get the economy reopened over a period of time.” Meanwhile Trump’s fourth chief of staff Mark Meadows, formerly of the House Freedom Caucus and before that a businessman and real estate developer, is already crying on the job, as per here. Beneath the gag is a serious point about the importance of social security.
