That is one perspective. It has some good points. But it's not the only perspective. More than one view can be beneficial. In this case the two are complementary as opposed to at odds.On the contrary ...
Not exactly. The question was whether or not Obama would have done better. What if he was given exactly the same bad information? I doubt he would have put the country into a panic and locked everything down in January over one case in the USA either. He also had a deeper respect for people's rights and freedoms, so maybe he would have taken a more holistic approach, which in my view would have been better, but also contrary to the reductionist approach of those who are looking only at the virus.None of this has anything to do with the politics of China and how the disease was first spread. That ship has sailed ...
I'm sure someone will, and I'm confident that much of what I've been saying will be included.

But how is the deadly virus impacting global poverty? Here we’ll argue that it is pushing about 40-60 million people into extreme poverty, with our best estimate being 49 million."... although it would be nice to do a more detailed postmortem when the current emergency is past.

I don't blame you. It makes a person like me feel so helpless. All I can do is post here and there, and maybe talk a bit about it on the show. However one thing I'm very confident of is that humanity ( including the USA ) will get past COVID-19. It's just not that bad a disease. There's more at risk from the fear, economic collapse, and the way it's being politically handled, than the disease itself. But even in the worst case scenario, life will go on.For now, I am sick and tired of living in a combat zone.
