    I'm fairly certain it involves forecasting. I read the article a few days back. The article's link to the report doesn't actually go to a report. It goes to the UCLA business website where they write about California expecting a better recovery compared to the rest of the states.

    It's hardly straightforward.

    I'm no economist but I got a bachelors in it and was consistently beaten in our heads that economics was inherently simple and straightforward. This is totally *** backwards.

    Of course, we know big tech in SF made an absolute killing off of people sitting on their ***** on a computer all day so maybe...

    It forced a lot of businesses out of business.

    Micro economics is relatively straightforward. Fewer base assumptions. Macro economics is extremely complicated and difficult to understand.

    yeah, there's only so many ways to adapt when your customers can't come into your business and your business model is not easily changed to online or delivery

    gotta love how many here seem to think 'if a business owner can't pay $15/hr or adapt to a pandemic maybe they shouldn't be in business' ....as if anyone could be prepared for what this past year threw at most of them
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Small businesses are still having a great deal of difficulty getting decent employees. Most of the businesses are having financial difficulties.

    Hey, it was great for companies like Cisco, Twitter, Facebook, Zoom and the thousand of other tech companies based in Cali.

    Speaking of economics, inflation is as bad as it been since 2008 and that was the worst economic period of most of our lives. The posters on here that yearn for Jimmy Carter are getting what they want I guess.

    You mean people got a slightly higher amount of money and now really don't think they should be working starvation wages?

    At the expense of causing businesses to close? People cannot live on welfare for ever. It was never intended to be a career option.

    So it's a catastrophe now? Speaking of playing things, you argue it was nothing and that it was catastrophic whenever it suits you

    Agreed. The extra benefits should go away at the least by July when we hit our targeted vaccination goals across the country.

    They shouldn't imo


    The only way Maternity, Paternity, vacation, work week, Healthcare will ever get better if people continue not get forced to work at a job that is taking advantage of them


    It will get worse before it gets better but it's necessary.



    I'd like to think voting matters , but considering widespread voter repression measures continue to get implemented , it'll never have a revolutionary impact.


    It was amazing to see people able to turn down **** jobs that underpay and overwork.




    That said, of course they'll remove the benefits to help the businesses - small and large.

    What does sitting around doing nothing provide to the economy? All the extended unemployment benefits do is drain from economic activity. Nothing is produced.
    It would be much better to have those who are physically capable of doing something out doing public works projects -- cleaning city streets, painting public buildings, cleaning up roadsides.
    As I said, welfare was never intended to be a career option.

    "How can we possibly expect people to go back to doing what they were doing 16 months ago?"
