What’s Next If We Ever Get Out of Lockdown

Now that we have ascended the Zoom learning curve and perhaps found the result disappointing, let’s skip the obvious first question and move to the second.

“What’s next” definitely comes after “when is next” because, at this point, we’d accept pretty much anything other than shelter in place.

I’d love to answer the “when” question but, obviously, I can’t, and you wouldn’t (also shouldn’t) believe me if I did.

Now that I have punted on the one you care most about, let’s have a look at the “what” question.

The political consulting firm of Mehlman Castagnetti takes a quarterly look into the middle distance and publishes a thought-provoking slide deck.

This is the second time Frazer Rice and I have used one as the basis for a podcast.

As always, the podcast is on Frazer’s website and here is how you get there.

Two comments:
1. How about, instead of a Space Force, we have a Pandemic Protection Force? It seems to me to be too large a job to leave to the private sector or governments other than the national government.
2. Yes, we have had 75 years of prosperity. For some. There was no mention of the persistent poverty and inequality in this country.

One of the best discussions yet across the board: nonpolitical, non agenda driven solution seeking. Bravo: Frazier and Haven—recommend this podcast!
