THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE MASKED BALL… 
By Bernard Bujold –
There was a time when politicians banned the wearing of masks so as not to inspire bandits… But in 2020, the instruction is to wear a mask, hoping that this gesture will help save your life! 
You might think it’s a kind of Masked Ball on a global scale gathering all the countries! 
Ulysses and I are ready…

THE CORONAVIRUS – HUMAN LIFE OR ECONOMIC LIFE?

April 7, 2020


HUMAN LIFE OR ECONOMIC LIFE? 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Governments around the world put a financial value on every human life in their country! 
For Canada, based on the Treasury Secretariat’s (federal agency) Cost-Benefit Analysis Guide, one economist estimates that a life is worth $9.5 million in 2020. 
In the United States, another economist puts a value of $14.5 million on a US human life. 
Thus, if the Quebec government manages to save 4000 lives thanks to its measures of isolation and stopping the economy, it would have preserved a “value” of 38 billion dollars. The federal government’s direct measures targeting individuals will cost about $100 billion for a few months. 
Theoretically, the cost of saving lives exceeds the value of the lives saved . 
This analysis is signed by the newspaper La Presse but there are several others for each country in the world and used by their respective governments.

THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS 
By Bernard Bujold –
“It’s going to be fine…”: Ulysses seems to be saying to the lonely and slightly lost duck on his end of the quay in the Old Port of Montreal! 
In spite of the city’s abandonment, hope continues to occupy the minds of citizens, and if there is a small light at the end of the tunnel concerning the virus, the economic future is more uncertain. But as the Premier of Quebec says: “It’s going to be fine…”.

THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE UNITED STATES

THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE UNITED STATES 
By Bernard Bujold
The Coronavirus is particularly severe in the United States but one must remember that there are 331,002,651 people in this country. In this challenging time, one positive thing is that the President Donald Trump, who is very energetic and aggressive in front of any challenge, is backed by Mike Pence, who is a very quiet and patient man, a perfect fit with President Trump. This team produced a very efficient “War Plan”, considering the size of this very exceptional and unique challenge. 
It is evident that Donald Trump will be reelected next November as the only other option would be Joe Biden who is not up to the posting of President of the United States. 
Considering the performance of Mike Pence in front of the Coronavirus, I would also predict that he would be elected President come 2024. 
To be continued.
