Consumer spending trends in the US. General merchandise and healthcare industries are nearing recovery. Entertainment and travel industries are still suffering.Well, travel is the one industry that SHOULD be losing in an epidemic. Real public health starts with banning travel, not banning life. Though Ginn doesn't mention it, the curve for groceries is especially encouraging. Huge burst with hoarding in March, then continuing about 20% above normal since then. Good news for the stores and their employees, who have been working extra hard. I was afraid they were losing money, but that's NOT the case. This explains why they're NOT complaining about the lockdowns and masks. They have a good proper BUSINESS reason, so I apologize for my earlier wrong assumption. Another positive trend: The consensus on reopening schools has shifted toward YES. A huge group of mainstream pediatricians demanded opening. The director of CDC has stated firmly that schools should open. Today BILL GATES said firmly that schools should open. Earlier, Mad Bomber Inslee insisted on keeping the schools closed forever, precisely and explicitly because Trump wanted to open. Inslee won't be able to maintain the same infantile hissyfit against BILL GATES.
