Minority business owners have been hurt the most.

The American economy has suffered mightily due to shutdown policies meant to stop the spread of COVID-19, but nobody has suffered more than black business owners, according to the findings of a recent study.

Data from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) has been compiled to indicate that 440,000 African Americans have been forced to give up their dreams because policies related to ongoing coronavirus hysteria. This represents an incredible 41 percent decline of black business owners during the period from February to April.

“More permanent mass closures of small businesses in the United States are likely to have a dramatic effect on employee job losses, further income inequality, and contributing to a prolonged recession,” the NBER study finds.

Black businesses have been hit harder because black business owners tend to work in industries that have not been deemed “essential,” in what could be seen as a form of institutional discrimination from primarily Democrat government officials. By comparison, white business owners declined by 17 percent during the shutdown while Hispanic business owners dropped by 32 percent.

“The negative early-stage impacts on minority- and immigrant-owned businesses, if prolonged, may be problematic for broader racial inequality because of the importance of minority businesses for local job creation, economic advancement, and longer-term wealth inequality,” said Robert Fairlie, an economics professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, who authored the report.

Big League Politics has reported on the negative ramifications of quarantine policies pushed for by the so-called experts, which have forced many businesses to close their doors:

While the so-called experts call for a longer and longer societal lock down, financial analysts are warning that emergency measures to stop the coronavirus pandemic are likely to result in the worst economic damage in nearly a century.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted on Tuesday that the coronavirus pandemic will result in the worst recession since the Great Depression, even surpassing the economic turmoil of the late 2000s. They expect a contraction of the world economy by 3 percent whereas the economy only contracted 0.7 percent in 2009.

“The Great Lockdown, as one might call it, is projected to shrink global growth dramatically,” said IMF economic counselor Gita Gopinath in the fund’s 2020 World Economic Outlook. “Much worse growth outcomes are possible and maybe even likely.”

China and the politicians who initiated these Draconian policies to crush the economy need to be held accountable for the devastating impact they have had on American families.

Goldman Sachs Claims Forcing Americans to Wear Masks Would Save U.S. Economy $1 Trillion

Multinational corporations want Americans to submit to the virus regime.

Corporate titan Goldman Sachs has produced research that contends the U.S. economy would save five percent of GDP, or $1 trillion, due to a national mask mandate using federal force to make people wear masks.

“If a face mask mandate meaningfully lowers coronavirus infections, it could be valuable not only from a public health perspective but also from an economic perspective because it could substitute for renewed lockdowns that would otherwise hit GDP,” the researchers wrote.

Goldman’s analysts claim that forcing people to wear masks at the federal level would impact states like Florida and Texas, where masks are not mandatory, and “meaningfully” increase mask usage nationwide. Even though the mandate would be grossly unconstitutional, Goldman apparently believes that the ends justify the means.

They estimate that a mask mandate would increase mask usage overall by 15 percent and cut the daily growth of new coronavirus cases by between .6% and 1%. Goldman is fueling the false dichotomy where the public must to accept either a strict mask mandate or a Draconian shutdown of society. They claim that the next lockdown would take an additional $1 trillion out of the economy.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is attempting to unseat President Trump in November, has stated that he would use federal power to force Americans to wear masks.

“Yes, I would—from an executive standpoint, yes, I would . . . I would do everything possible to make it a requirement that people had to wear masks in public,” Biden mumbled last week.

The stage has been set for round two of the coronavirus panic to cripple society, even though the establishment has been encouraging Black Lives Matter pogroms against white people simultaneously.

Big League Politics has reported on the so-called experts as they have kept the fear propaganda going despite the immense hypocrisy:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.

“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.

“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.

Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”

The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.

The establishment will never allow normalcy to return. The Orwellian nightmare, enabled by COVID-19 hysteria, is here to stay.
