What we have never learned from history is whether we can shut down our economy for 4 straight months and not suffer irreparable fiscal damage or collapse.

    America suffered the loss of nearly 10,000 young men a month during WW2 and kept moving. America has never experimented with shutting down the economy for months. That seems to be a very bad and highly risky thing to do as an experiment to try to save Americans from getting into serious trouble of one sort or another.
