Link Dump: Covid19, the economy, & good reads

This has been a rough week. My politics crush, Elizabeth Warren, dropped out, leaving us with Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, neither of whom I’m exactly thrilled with as candidates. I mean, I’ll vote for whichever of them wins the primary, but they don’t exactly excite me or fill me with confidence. Maybe I’ll feel better after we find out who a potential VP will be.

At any rate, it’s Friday, a thing I am grateful for, because it has, indeed, been a rough week. Here’s all the reading I’ve saved up and/or dug up – lot of good stuff in here.

Economic News

Brief advisory: I don’t actually know a lot about economics. Here’s what I do know: the signs don’t feel good, recession-wise. I’m getting a wee bit nervous about it, y’all. If you haven’t been already, now’s a good time to start battening down what hatches you can, ’cause I think if covid19 doesn’t do anything else, it’s definitely going to make the economy shit itself.
