All through February and into early March, the media was awash with headlines that scoffed “Don’t worry — it’s just the flu”. While most of those news outlets have pivoted and are now more likely to print sensationally fearful articles (the same who accused our data driven approach as “fear mongering” just weeks ago), we’re seeing a new campaign now of opinion pieces by credentialed ‘experts’ claiming the virus may not be as bad as initially expected. In today’s video, Chris goes through a number of these recent articles and addresses them point by point. As empirically-driven thinkers, at PeakProsperity.com we don’t shy away from a challenge to our conclusions. We’re of the mind that the best facts should win, and if the data changes, our analysis will change with it. But Chris doesn’t find much in these recent ‘expert’ opinions besides false hope. Or poor logic. Which just goes to underscore why we need to continue thinking for ourselves here. So many of our “leaders” and “experts” failed to warn and prepare us for this pandemic, for reasons ranging from politics to incompetence. So keep educating yourself. And we’ll keep producing our daily updates and analysis to aid your understanding.
