Interesting article on Covid spending.

This economist thinks too much money ends up going to support goods produced in other countries rather than home grown services.

Itís a laudable goal, I suppose, but completely unrealistic, and possibly dangerous.

Encourage restaurants?  During a pandemic?  Thatís just a bad idea all-around.  Of course service industries get hurt when going out might mean getting a deadly disease.  And weíve seen Vancouver need to tighten up restrictions considerably.  There is going to be even less money spent on service industries now...  and for very god reason.


Wilber, how many times do you eat out now compared to before COVID?
