The Fun Night that Wasn’t Fun

In the old days, which seem behind us, people were invited to marvel at the workings of the American system. For all the problems with the vote in a constitutional republic, at least it assures the peaceful transition of power. That was the core argument that old liberals made for democracy. It kept violence at bay. Instead of killing each other for power and control, we went to the ballot box, and acquiesced even when the vote didn’t go the way we wanted. No more violent revolutions! Bring the peaceful cooperation of market action to politics itself!

So Much for the “Strawman” of Lockdowns

The Great Barrington Declaration website went live on October 5, 2020. Over the next four weeks it amassed signatures from over 10,000 health scientists, 30,000 medical practitioners, and 600,000 members of the general public – all calling for an end to lockdowns as the primary tool for mitigating Covid-19. Lockdowns have imposed immense social and economic harms over the last eight months. Meanwhile, surprisingly little evidence exists to support the effectiveness of the lockdown approach.

The Economics of a COVID-19 Halloween

Is it going to be a bone-chilling Halloween for retailers, or a frightful season of riches? The coronavirus pandemic has possessed every corner of the economy, turning the marketplace into a graveyard of business closures and broke consumers. While little goblins and ghouls might not be allowed to request households for a trick or a treat, Americans might still be in the gruesome, grisly, and ghoulish spirit.

Our COVID-19 Plan would Minimize Mortality and Lockdown-induced Collateral Damage

Current COVID-19 lockdowns protect low-risk college students and young professional bankers, attorneys, journalists, scientists and others who can work from home, while older high-risk working-class people are risking their lives building the population immunity that will eventually protect us all.

The Real Pandemic: Mass Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy

It’s more than fair to say that we are experiencing a pandemic, but not the one you hear about ad nauseum. No, the pandemic is not a virus, it is a pandemic outbreak of Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy which focuses its obsessions on the virus.

Lockdowners Speak with Privilege, and Contempt for the Poor and Working Class

The Great Barrington Declaration, signed last weekend, has unleashed a torrent of criticism. This was to be expected, since it conflicts with the public health prescription that has attained a religious-like status in many circles: lockdowns and social distancing must be enforced in order to stop or slow transmission of the coronavirus.

Run Away from Covid or Get Immune?

Does not Donald Trump deserve some credit for finally talking about what we should have been talking about for these last seven horrifying months? He got the bug, shook it off, and thereby beefed up his immune system. He is stronger and now can move about freely, engaging people, shaking hands, and otherwise living a normal life.

AIER Hosts Top Epidemiologists, Authors of the Great Barrington Declaration

From October 1-4, 2020, the American Institute for Economic Research hosted a remarkable meeting of top epidemiologists, economists, and journalists, to discuss the global emergency created by the unprecedented use of state compulsion in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. The result is The Great Barrington Declaration, which urges a “Focused Protection” strategy.
