The appropriate positional response to the lows here is to ride the pig, what we are talking about is taking measures outguessing the road to normalisation of rates which we have not yet recognised as such.
Now we turn to the analysis of play in unemployment claims, despite how the media are selling business as usual we have a long (and likely sluggish) road to recovery, because of the poor handling of lockdowns and closures.
