I just heard that the Dow Jones had hit a big high on the same day the WHO announced that we have reached a worldwide infection rate of 20 million. And last week the heads of the Big Four were before congress.
So here’s what I think. Those four Heads together represent an enormous resource package. They could be the solution. First off, the pandemic cries out for unified national policy and determination. We are getting none of that and may not see anything until February at best. So look no further in that direction for help. I suggest that the Big Four (and many others) agree with the Feds to use their resources to help combat the virus in exchange for tax credits. Let it even be based on results. Then let the geniuses get together and put their foundations’ resources to work. Like everyone gets tested every day. Everywhere. They could make that happen. Better still, solutions beyond my imagining, like they do with new product and technology development. Only focused on bettering the virus. Who better than our best and best resourced. And they will see their own best interests served by this as well.
Why are we waiting for help when none seems forthcoming. Only increases in numbers and risks. Time for a new approach.
What do you think?
