Peak Prosperity, Released on 4/23/20
Chris has been frequently critical of our leaders’ bungled responses throughout the coronavirus pandemic. So today he turns the tables on himself and asks: Well, what would *I* do if I were in charge? He walks through the major policies he would embrace to address both the health and economic crises we’re currently dealing with. Everything from resourcing the national covid-19 response, to keeping the public better educated and informed, to pursuing a bottom-up (vs the current top-down) stimulus program, to building a new vision for the post-pandemic future. He also shares the continued challenge Peak Prosperity faces from the mainstream media, who remain committed — by intent or by laziness — to painting our non-partisan science-based analysis as crackpot fringe hucksterism. The latest example of which comes from The New York Times who should, quite frankly, be better than this shoddy style of ‘journalism’. Whatever the reason for their low regard, we will continue to produce these daily video for as long as they’re needed. Or put in other words, for as long as the major media outlets continue to fail to provide intelligent, honest, unbiased analysis of the breaking developments that are impacting our lives.
