Summary: 

Coronavirus is not the only economic shock that has been or will be experienced (cough, the climate crisis, cough). It is possible for our economy to evolve and become more resilient in the face of such shocks.

I have a confession, my good and faithful readers. With head-bowed and my most contrite face, I write to tell you that I cheated. Not just that I cheated, but that I cheated ON YOU. I was unfaithful, and I wrote something for another website’s audience. From the bottom of my heart, I apologize for my infidelity.

Actually, on second thought…sorry, not sorry. It was super cool – I had the chance to contribute a piece for GreenBiz that ran last week. Here it is, and I’d be honored if you clicked on over and gave it a read. And to Joel Makower and everyone at GreenBiz, a big thank you for running it!

It’s a bit longer than a normal blog, so I’ll keep these remarks short. The idea of the piece was to highlight the macroeconomic flaws that have been revealed by COVID-19. Further, this virus is not the only economic shock that has been or will be experienced (cough, the climate crisis, cough). I believe that our economy can evolve to become more resilient in the face of such shocks.

Thanks y’all, and I promise I’ll be back with a normal blog post just for you next week. Cheers!
