Very interesting about the women leaving the work-force. It’s almost like turning back the hands of time to where there was less crime and more neighborliness, not to mention either less materialism or more prosperity that allows women to be the primary caregiver for their children. There’s obviously no lack of jobs available.
Another thing: As noted in my column, the CDC has posted a decrease in deaths by all causes this year. If the pandemic was serious enough to send vast quantities of wealth from individuals and small businesses to giant retailers, wouldn’t there be more people dying? The blame lies on the government, not the pandemic.
Much of the boom of the 50s was the result of pent-up demand from FDR’s Great Depression and his World War 2. The government didn’t need to do all these things such as recommended by Iowa’s Economy Recovery Advisory Board.
As Henry David Thoreau said: “Government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of its way.”
