    John Cochrane, Hoover, The Grumpy Economist blog and WSJ; in re:  Daily existential choice between starving at home or working in danger.  This should have been treated not by economic lockdown, but [using our brains]. No bars or Mardi Gras, and the like.  Significant transformation of the economy?  One danger was Wall Street—people close together, screaming.  Will  have to move offices out of the city.  We know how it das spread, but not how it doesn’t. If people keep mouth closed on subway and don't talk, perhaps no danger. Re-shoring: bring mfrg back from China? Cost twice as much. Same for restaurants with half as many diners.   In 200, you and I couldn’t read research reports fresh off the press, but now we can.  Excellent open information flow and debate.  https://johnhcochrane.blogspot.com/2020/05/jones-and-fernandez-villaverde-update.html

    John Cochrane, Hoover, The Grumpy Economist blog and WSJ; in re:  Contact tracing. State govts are just waking up.   I’ve credited people with common sense till I saw Memorial Day photos.  SIRD (suspected, infected, recovered and dead) model.  Since we don't have smart governments, the next best is to have accurate information, yourself. What spreads this – sneezes? Surfaces?  In New York, at a high in late March, is now down to .5%   It's key for us all to be very careful, just not so careful that we destroy the economy. We’re still not doing random testing, which would be very useful: where are hotspots? Fighting an epidemic with a lockdown is a Medieval way of dealing with it. Lockdown worldwide is now considered to have been an experiment that failed.  This disease spreads not evenly, but in crowded places. Also: protect the vulnerable!  That’s solvable.   Manhattan is a no-go area—so go carefully. New York is like a nursing home or an aircraft carrier.  Billings doesn't have elevators or subways. https://www.wsj.com/articles/get-ready-for-the-careful-economy-11590514492?mod=opinion_lead_pos5

The northwest boundary ofIndia constitutes the vulnerable point of Britainspower in Asia.

Rapidly recounting the history of India andAfghanistan for the past century, the writercomes to the reign of the famous Ameer Abd-ur-Rahman, the great predecessor of the presentruler. Tiirough the cication of a standing army,subsidized by Great Britain, this chief was en-abled, not only to keep the turbulent tribes incheck, Ijut to make himself independent of Eng-land and Russia.

    107: The FDA panicked and "the CDC failed miserably," but we’re pulling through @henryimiller

    Henry Miller, Pacific Research Institute, in re: Antibodies start to be produced about a week after infection. Problems with the serologic test: FDA seems to have panicked into allowing it on the market without testing.  PCR test for viral material (with swab); then test for antibodies in the blood.  Then it turned out that CDC and some state were combining results and reporting them together, which makes no sense; meaningless results.  A large CDC error was telling us how many would die, and scaring people about surfaces.  The CDC has failed miserably in much that it’s done. A few months ago it took on itself to do tests that were unusable.  A month later, added a component that wasn't available in the market, causing the US to be ’way behind.
