But in general all countries are facing the same thing: an almost complete freezing of the economy. If this is so, what is the use of carefully accounting for the fall? As the philosopher Manuel Arias Maldonado says, “to say that CO 2 emissions have mobile phone number list plummeted or that movie tickets have not been sold would be impressive under normal conditions; but they are not, these are unavoidable effects given the paralysis of the social body. And it's counterproductive to 'sensationalise' it."3. That is to say: the economy of the Great Seclusion is today mobile phone number list the “new normal”. Accounting for decline is sometimes a voyeuristic temptation or is simply akin to watching the inevitable downward trajectory of a parachutist whose mobile phone number list parachute fails to open. At the same time, it is a necessary and unavoidable analysis. Measuring the impact of depression helps us put the right patches on it, allows us to better understand the states and systems in which we live, and opens up necessary structural debates. It is in moments of mobile phone number list crisis when the seams of the system are best seen and when more is learned about its operation. Why, for example, has the US suffered such a radical reduction in employment, or at least much more radical than other Western countries? It has to mobile phone number list do with how their economic system and growth model are designed. As the economist Mark Blyth explains, in crises "the US tends to protect capital and simply let labor adjust through unemployment." This tendency to protect the big ones, capital, while workers bear the highest cost, explains why the country is suffering so much from the pandemic.
