Regarding the impact of Covid-19 on small businesses…
Messner realizes that small businesses need some help, and that it’s time to find a “balance” for how government is dealing with the shutdowns.
“With the covid situation, we need balance. And what I mean by balance… we’ve seen a lot of models about covid and what’s happening to people… and we need to model what happens with the shutdowns… and the human damage from the shutdowns.
People not getting their health checkups, not getting their cancer screenings, small businesses suffering because of the shutdown… and what it does to people who are small business owners and their employees and their customers too. There’s no balance in this analysis.
We’re just now starting to hear about what happens with these shutdowns and what happens with small businesses. And there’s a document now called the Great Barrington Declaration, that some scientists have put together that talks about balancing all of this out with the human impact of the shutdowns and the impact on small businesses and what the human cost of that is going to be, as compared to the cost of covid.
Businesses need to be able to be open and operate.
