Hasierarako, ikus Koronabirusa eta ekonomia (finantzaketa, bereziki)
Korea did things that seemed like an overreaction, and now they seem smart.
Don’t focus on the blue line. Look at the green bars.
South Korea’s success at battling back #Covid19 is extraordinary. Only 76 cases on March 14. Look at this curve. Amazing. Don’t focus on the blue line. Look at the green bars.

Recession is sadly required to tackle the pandemic. As millions lose their jobs, we still need an army of ppl to disinfect, deliver essential meds, food, etc The solidarity economy is key. But we have no preparedness/protocol how 2 do this w/o putting ppl in harm’s way 1/n

This is why we cannot rely on emergency responses. Going forward, preparedness in all aspects of public life must guide policy. So that we have the institutions and protocols for dealing with shortages in both equipment and human resources. 2/
But imagine how much better the recovery would be if we had a #JobGuarantee in place. Imagine the peace of mind it will afford the most vulnerable famies who have no idea how long they’ll be out of work. Imagine the economic boost it will provide when living income is assured 3/
Of course paid leave, measures to retain workers, free heathcare are desperately needed now. And they’ll be needed tomorrow. But a recession means mass unemployment & unemployment does not resolve on its own. It requires direct employment programs in every corner of the nation 4/
This can be accomplished through mass public investment and mobilization to address neglected projects: Large scale infrastructure, green projects, clean water. But it also requires a #JobGuarantee for anyone who is looking for work for whatever reason. No questions asked. 5/
Well before this pandemic, I argued that the #JobGuarantee must be organized like the CDC’s National Strategic Stockpile with on-the-shelf projects in every community! I explain in my forthoming book amazon.com/dp/1509542094 6/
We see today how vital it is for the Strategic Stockpile to be adequately stocked. The same will be true for the #JobGuarantee. But let’s not have any illusions There are countless essential tasks to be done. 7/
I hope that, as we contemplate our long term responses to the looming recession, we insist that a #jobGuarantee is part of the package and a permanent feature of our preparedness response to any recession and any cause of involuntary unempl in good times or bad /end
