I usually don't believe "conspiracies" but anyone else think there is a real, non-zero chance that this was a bioweapon? It might have gotten out accidentally, or purposely to attempt to damage Donald Trump's presidency/economy due to a failure of candidates to oppose him in normal conditions.

 

Whatever the truth is, I do not believe for a split second this is just a random "bat"

This is an open letter from 32 well-known economists regarding the US economic situation in regards of the virus.

Economic Strategy Group Statement on COVID-19 Pandemic and Economic Crisis

March 25 2020 • AESG

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is at once threatening American lives, the sustainability of our nation’s health care system, and our economic prosperity. Our paramount concern at this moment should be to slow the spread of this virus and equip our health care system to effectively respond. Saving lives and saving the economy are not in conflict right now; we will hasten the return to robust economic activity by taking steps to stem the spread of the virus and save lives.

 

Public and private sector actors must work together to provide more tests, more ventilators, more personal protective equipment, and more support for hospitals and health care facilities. Only when we have made progress on these fronts will US businesses and consumers be able to resume normal economic activity without inducing a resurgent spread that leads to even more severe health and economic effects.

 

We are deeply troubled by the prospect of a sustained recession that would erode the economic livelihood of millions of Americans. While Americans practice social distancing and medical professionals work to save lives, policy makers should put measures in place to support households and businesses through this difficult period. These collective efforts will allow more businesses to get up and running again as soon as possible and minimize the severity of the economic hardship on the American people.

We got several members of the National Economic Council.

 

We got several people from Harvard, and a Professor of Economics from MIT.

 

And they are all saying to take care of the virus first, and then take care of the economy afterwards.

 

No who am I going to believe.......actual experts?  Or an idiot who somehow managed to bankrupt a casino?

It actually does. If you know a depression is coming, or a risk of one, you can short sell the stock market and make a cool few hundred billion dollars, possibly over a trillion.

Which is the equivalent of one month's worth of China annual GDP. (12.24 Trillion).:cat:

1) Artificial viruses exist in droves in labs, military camps, science facilities, across the world

2) One of these places hosting artificial viruses was confirmed to be in Wuhan  

3) Said place was specifically recorded hosting experiments involving coronaviruses https://qz.com/1805422/wuhan-virology-lab-unable-to-quell-china-coronavirus-conspiracies/

4) Chinese government is notorious for lying 

5) NO, IT WAS A RANDOM BAT!
