“MassMutual to Give $3 Billion in Life Insurance to Health Care Workers”
From Think Advisor:
* The new MassMutual HealthBridge program will provide up to $25,000 in free, three-year term life insurance coverage for active employees of licensed hospitals, urgent care centers, or emergency medical services providers with jobs that involve occupational exposure to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19.
"Entrepreneurs Will Endure Politicians, While Innovating Around Them"
From Real Clear Markets:
* “While conservatives and liberals (American style) both operate under the pretense that government spending is some kind of abstraction that just happens without consequence, the unhappy truth is that per Fairless and Douglas, every dollar arrogated by politicians to themselves amounts to an extra dollar of governmental control over the economy’s precious resources by Nancy Pelosi, Kevin McCarthy, Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump, and perhaps, Joe Biden.”
* “In that case, the politicized allocation of precious resources that Fairless and Douglas speculate is our future will naturally limit total growth simply because Pelosi, McCarthy et al are rather unworthy replacements for actual wealth creators. Think Bezos, Thiel, FedEx founder Fred Smith, Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman, and countless other innovators and investors. Government spending restrains growth. Period.”
"How to get the economy back into gear"
From Washington Examiner:
* How should it begin? The first issue to consider is why the economy is actually shut down. Is it the result of all those government restrictions on public and private life? Listening to the media debate, there is a widespread impression that the government closed the economy and the government can open it back up. But some of the officials most thoughtfully considering how to move forward don't see it that way.
* "What has caused the economy to grind to a halt is not some governor or mayor's order, or some public health bureaucrat's recommendation," said Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, who warned of the coronavirus's danger back in January. "It's just the fear of the virus."
