    If I were to ever need professional medical advice an economist would not be my first choice.

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Criticizing the CBC and using a link to the CBC to support a weird argument all in the same post. Gold.

    A bit more COVID news. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-covid-19-news-today-ontario-court-expected-to-rule-on-vaccine-rollout/ This is good news. Also: Most Canadians favour vaccine proof for domestic travel, sporting events: Nanos survey And it would seem that G7 countries...

    I am the Secret Public Servant

    I have plenty of stories. But I would not be publishing them in a news paper. Yeah, the last time I think was someone called EX or X. And was stories about the ex world.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    There are ways to call out China’s role in this mess. I’d rather see Asians as whole not stigmatized over this. Which they are and it starts with our language.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    The WHO a has a rules about what they call any virus. They try to avoid anything that could be derogatory or could crate a stigma of some type. as I mentioned, when this came out there was an attempt to use identity politics and ridiculous name like “Kung flu” etc. It was used to demean and...

    They just approved Pfizer for 12 and up. So hopefully it will offer a degree of protection. It still I pacts kids if they get it. Just to a lesser degree but no one wants to see any kid be the one to get a bad case of it.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    It has to do with stigma. It’s that simple. The Spanish Flu did not start in Spain and Spain wasn’t hit nearly as badly as others yet the name sticks to this day. AIDS is still associated with gay people and they have stigmatized for it for decades. The naming of the swine flu caused certain...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Except it was called the China Virus, the Kung Flu etc etc. Nobody kicked British 80 year olds in the street or left Brazilian families nasty messages on their lawn, or called the South African variant the Zulu Flu. If the people on a certain political spectrum had not started with the...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    If people were smart enough to know the difference it wouldn’t make a difference. But the moment they hear “China virus” or whatever they get triggered when they see Asians, because they think all Asians look the same they are all part of the same club. As PMed mentioned, it has an actual...

    Except the language has led to a variety of hate crimes against Asians in North America. So the similarities are there.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    He’s using the name a certain segment of the political sphere are using. We don’t call Ebola the “Africa Virus”, we stopped calling AIDS the gay virus a long time ago. In an age of reason it’s disappointing to see people use divisive culture war language. All these terms and nicknames serve...

    What would happened if?

    There is a great book that was made into a really good TV movie with Rutger Hauer called Fatherland. It imagines that Germany gets the atom first and threatens to drop it on London. Britain essentially surrenders. The war on the western front ends but the eastern front continues for 10 years...
