Lloyd Blankfein is the CEO of Goldman Sachs.
As one of the world’s richest capitalists he is frightened by the current pandemic.
He’s not frightened because of the possibility that millions of people will die. He is frightened that without workers back on the job, money will be lost.
His money and the money of the .01%.
Donald Trump echoed Blankfein yesterday when he said that the stay-at-home directive of the CDC is a cure worse than the disease.
The president is questioning whether stay-at-home orders have gone too far. But relaxing them could significantly increase the death toll from the coronavirus, health officials warn.
Including health experts like Anthony Fauci, who was not at his usual spot during Monday’s press briefing on the COVID19 virus.
Without government support for the millions of workers who have lost earnings over the past week, the pressure to return to work will be great even at great personal risk.
Trump is looking to lift the stay-at-home order as soon as ten days from now.
Make no mistake. It is a potential death order for millions.
