Reopening the economy is pointless when cities are under siege

The Atlantic has updated the title of the article to, ‘Big Cities Won’t Snap Back to Normal’. The original title will remain the permalink for this post.

Ronald Brownstein:

”The counties confronting the largest number of cases are primarily large urban centers that account for a disproportionate share of America’s gross domestic product and jobs, according to a new analysis conducted for The Atlantic by the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program. As of Tuesday morning, the 50 counties with the most cases accounted for more than one-third of the nation’s economic output and nearly one-third of its jobs, Brookings found.”

I wouldn’t call it pointless so much as I would call it impossible.
