Yes, everyone should do a panic run on the banks, surely that will not cause any issues or incite even more panic buying and eventually rioting or looting. Oh, he must be one of those anarchist types.do anything OTHER than withdrawing your cash. Pulling it out and forcing the banks to admit they don't have it will force them to collapse and shut down. That's what triggered the Great Depression.
No it wasn't. There are a large variety of factors that led to the Depression, but run on banks certainly did not help.do anything OTHER than withdrawing your cash. Pulling it out and forcing the banks to admit they don't have it will force them to collapse and shut down. That's what triggered the Great Depression.
We'll see whos laughing when the banks start limiting you to only 20 dollars a day.FDIC federally insures all cash in bank accounts up to $250,000 per person.
Your money is fine.
They're just not mentioning it. Nobody is. Everyone knows, they're just not screaming "Chyna" because the UK didn't have the same beef with the chinks as the US did.I'd be interested to hear how the press in other countries is treating this and reference to China in general?
In the UK I'm not seeing much/any mention of China in relation to the virus now (though I dont go out of my way to read every news source).
Is this still an sjw dont be racist thing? All a bit ridiculous, especially since the Chinese propaganda machine is now highlighting imported cases and those stinky foreigners.
UBI does not work. Period. They tried it in Finland a few years ago, giving everyone within one province a flat income. They announced this pilot scheme loudly and proudly. It got quietly dropped not too long after as it turns out it does basically fuck all and did nothing they expected it to.I wish the UK was as sensible, but the tories are terrified of anything that might look like universal basic income in case people realise it's actually a pretty sound idea. Instead, if you're employed you get 80% of your salary up to 2,500 a month, if your employer is honest and wants to do the paperwork. Otherwise, he can choose to fire you, or reduce your hours to 0 a week and not apply for the government help, and you're screwed. If you're self-employed (or fake self employed like Uber drivers) you currently get 94 a week if you fill out a load of forms. There's talk that maybe they'll start paying them based on the average income of their previous three years or bollocks like that. And if you just work for cash in hand (think buskers, casual labourers, drug dealers), you get nothing at all while forced under penalty of law not to leave your house. So that'll be nice for them, in a few weeks from now.
Honestly, they should just have given every single person a payment large enough to compensate for being deprived of the ability to earn a living. Every single person is suffering the same loss of liberty and opportunity, every single person deserves the same compensation. That just doesn't compute to the Tory mindset. It would be 'rewarding lazyness' or something.
The BBC always finds folks like this. Like how they find nurses in food banks despite a starting salary for them being £24k a year. They're the kind of morons who consider a holiday to the Seychelles or the Med once a year an essential.The problem is people think they need more than they do. I lived for a few years cutting things very thin and excluding mortgage/rent and electricity/oil you only need like £50 a week.
The other day the BBC had some woman saying £94/week isn't enough because even excluding rent she still has £950 of essential bills a month. What the fuck?
They were not published until midnight nearly today. Could be people are asking for more autopsies to be performed or something.Where on earth are today's UK numbers? I know they've been getting later every day but this is new.
The Fed calling all loans due is the main trigger, but the collapse of the banks themselves were caused by the run on the banks. The Fed could have called all loans due and the economy survive if not for the panic run that immediately forced the banks to all go belly upNo it wasn't. There are a large variety of factors that led to the Depression, but run on banks certainly did not help.
I did, I think big corporations are doing it either expecting more curfews and lockdowns, and to cover places where there are already lockdowns.how many have been given papers saying they're an essential worker yet? I know 3 people.
That's why its hoped the new testing kit will work out for people.A new model by the Oxford University challenges now the model of the Imperial College London which was the main decision factor for many countries to lock down. The current theory in that new model is that people were already getting infected since January at least and that there are already millions infected worldwide and also that half of the population of the UK is/was already infected, which is the country the study focuses on in it's model. We now really need large scale antibody testing to figure this out. If things go really well for humanity we might figure out that big parts of the population in western countries are already immune to it.
That's the threat. However, that is the threat if you repeatedly breach what some worthless pig tells you to do (i.e. not the first time), or if you fight them.

Senate passes $2.2 trillion emergency relief package
The bill would deliver historic levels of emergency aid across the economy, including to households, businesses, cities and states. It would expand unemployment insurance benefits and direct more money to cash-strapped hospitals. The package now goes for consideration to the House of Representatives, which is expected to vote on it Friday. President Trump has said he is eager to sign it.
well you can get 2 weeks med for 500€ including flights. and it IS fucking essential, humans are just not made to survive the winters in the grey waste of nothern europe.The BBC always finds folks like this. Like how they find nurses in food banks despite a starting salary for them being £24k a year. They're the kind of morons who consider a holiday to the Seychelles or the Med once a year an essential.
