Part 4. THE “V” SHAPED RECOVERY DELUSION
The Donald now insists that the folly of Lockdown Nation was a one-time bump in the road, which is rapidly fading into the rear-view mirror. Allegedly, therefore, the US economy is bounding onto the comeback trail, proving that what he did once will be outdone by an even grander Greatest Economy Ever in the near future.
Of course, that’s mainly the Donald’s immense ego talking, but to some lesser degree is also reflects the abysmal shortcomings of his sycophantic advisors. We are referring, of course, to the clueless Treasury Secy Stevie Mnuchin, who doesn’t know, and economic policy head Larry Kudlow, who won’t tell.
Still, would that at least one adult in the room explain to the Donald that the US economy is not a bungee-jumper and that his ballyhooed “V” isn’t happening anytime soon.
