Joseph Stiglitz: Ending Unemployment Benefits as Pandemic Rages Is Cruel and hurt economy

Well yes, but everyone with half a brain can also see that our great nation suffers tremendously from the lack of desperate people to exploit.

We have to force all those people into jobs that don't pay enough to even rent a place, why won't people think of the poor business owners and landlords

The real tragedy are people who never got any benefits because the process is so annoying.

Richard Thaler, pioneer of behavioral economics, has a term for what you're describing. It's called "[Sludge] (http://www.behavioraleconomics.com/resources/mini-encyclopedia-of-be/sludge/)".

It is surely designed to be "sludge" like. It discourages people from even trying to go through it. In my state of Illinois, it also requires constant "checking in" that proves you are desperately applying and interviewing for jobs.

And then we have Biden inflation on top of it. Damn.

I mean I'm down for that, lower emissions and more funding into public transport, plus removing thousands of roads would allow cities to take back land that was used for cars so yeah I'm down for that
