How to fight Covid-19 by opening the society

The greatest risc for spreading the disease is by people not aware of the fact that they have Covid-19. Since young people appear to be less effected by Covid-19, it is to be expected that especially young people will not have any symptoms. And it is also young people who often likes to be socially active, go parties and in generally enjoy interacting with other people at bars, fitness centers, […]

The only action plan against Covid-19 which works

Some countries seem to have adopted the strategy that we simply should wait until so many people has got immunity that the virus will stop spreading by itself. There have even been thoughts about testing people to see if they have got antibodies against the virus, so those people should not worry about being infected by the virus again.

A Tale of Two Cookies – Economics 101

Today, I am following up with a new post in a series, which is delving into the foundations of modern-day capitalism. We have already seen how the accumulation of wealth is built into the very structure of the system, and how the incessant call for privatisation – far from being a way of making the public service sector more efficient – is generally merely an excuse for further concentration of wealth and power. Now, let us dig one level further down again. Into the world of the science behind it all…
