    Big businesses can always borrow another billion dollars from the Fed at 0.00001% interest to make payroll and buy back stock so its price keeps going up. The Fed can’t do that for small business owners because the smart ones would borrow the maximum and buy gold bars with it.

    Our economy is locked in a weird sort of Breath-of-the-Wild stasis field or Brezhnevian stagnation — everyone still gets to eat and stay in their homes without paying bills, but “non-essential” economic activities, most of which really were non-essential, have stopped.

    The hardest blow is the psychological one, the transition from hard-working independent small-business owner to just another unemployed person.

      All part of the plan to Sovietize the US, comrade!

    I think that the “American Dream” just left the building. This is not good. Working entrepreneurs will turn from constructive business to something that satisfies their egos in another way.

    This doesn’t enrich the wealthy. All it does is make them look wealthier by comparison. If that is what they care about, they have lost sight of the ball.

      Well, it enriches them a bit, but the key thing for them is, it hurts the middle class, which is what they want.

        There is an old saying and it went out of fashion in the sixties. “A rising tide lifts all boats.” They nay have forgotten lessons from the French Revolution. What started that was inflation to the point where a man could barely buy bread for his family, never mind pay rent.

        They have forgotten.

        They want us to eat bugs / soy, not meat; they want to keep that for themselves.

        They hate the poor and the middle class – except their pets, the ghetto thugz; those poor, they pamper, sorta, though not lifting them out of poverty, just using them for political purposes, virtue signalling.

    The 1% will be able to buy any worthwhile assets for pennies on the dollar.

    Just another day in the USSA.

    More seriously, this aspect of the plandemic is intended to crush small business because it will be easier to track everyone’s spending habits if the only vendors left are megacorps.

    The flipside of this coin is the drive to eliminate cash by characterizing it as, “unclean, dirty,” etc. Forcing everyone to use cards or other electronic payments makes the tracking process easier.

    This will also have the benefit of killing the cash economy. No more lost revenue due to proles working under the table and failing to report income.

    Finally, there is the benefit to TPTB that all-electronic payments make it super easy to cancel people. Don’t like the GlobHom program? No problem, they’ll just zero your accounts and cancel your cards so you can immediately start enjoying your new lifestyle of homeless starvation.

      “And nobody could buy or sell, unless they had the Mark of the Beast”…
