Central banks and governments continue QE programs but that does not cure the virus or fear

Ed Moya joins me for a longer discussion today focused on what central banks and governments are doing to try to stabilize the markets and economy. The overarching issue is that no one knows how long the virus and quarantine will last which makes it impossible to build confidence in investors and the general public.

    This Macro Voices podcast from yesterday is a must listen: I happen to agree with Eric that our medical system will be overwhelmed in another month to 6 weeks. People will be on their own and even health care workers, because of the lack of ppe will be sick……….https://www.macrovoices.com/ #10.
    I agree with the title of this page………..good luck to all!

      I listened to an interview with an Italian doctor in Lombardy who, to my surprise, said that so far they have been able to treat everyone so far. It’s very tight but they’re not having to let people die at this point. Unless you believe it gets worse here than there, I’m not so sure it’ll get as desperate as some people think.

    It is always what you don’t know you don’t know that gets you in the end.
    I am disgusted at the misinformation being disseminated by supposedly “knowledgeable”
    experts AND Government officials. It is hard at times to determine whether they really don’t know. or whether they are lying because they are scared as to what might happen if they tell the truth. Situations change fast and information has its own speed.
    Confidence is not going to come back, unless you stick your head under six inches of sand. (and that is not great for your health.)

    Preliminary research information (only 24 cases) is indicating that even after surviving an infection of the virus, there is, on average, 20% lung damage, which may be permanent.
    If you can avoid getting the disease in the first place, that is best.

    Biden is clearly passed his sell by date.
    He is now so ignorant and senile, he is getting very close to his bury by date.


    You are seriously ignorant sleepy Joe.
    The ACE2 receptor sites in mostly lungs can can allow this virus to enter the body,
    But an ACE@ spike is not the only spike the SARS COV II virus has.
    It has a GRP78 spike.
    It has a CD147 spike.

    Did you know ACE2 receptors are also involved in blood pressure regulation ?

    I am not a microbiologist or an M.D., but I suspect there is a reason why co-morbidity of hypertensivity is critical in death rate problems via ACE2.

    EVERYTHING I know and have read about this virus tells me it is a human-engineered bioweapon.
