I had a brief email correspondence with Noam Chomsky. I asked:
Luis Camillo Almeida: What are your thoughts on COVID-19 and the future of the American economy?”
Noam Chomsky: In brief, it was anticipated, could have been prevented, a colossal market failure. It can be contained it seems. South Korea and other Asian countries are an example. Or it can be handled badly, as in Europe, or very badly, as in the US, the one major country that can’t even provide data.
