This project turned out exceptionally well. Among other things, it funded the primary clinical trials for 2 of the top 3 Covid drugs. More research funding should work like this.

I'm surprised to learn that the consensus opinion of economists during WW2 was that the US would slide back into the Great Depression as soon as the war was over as we now know, what actually happened was the exact opposite: the next few decades saw a booming economy
James’ opinion resonates. We can improve things very rapidly if the political will is there. Email your electeds. Take action.

Remember, GDP only measures things with market prices. When you push a public good into the market, GDP goes up. So privatizing healthcare systems, privatizing public housing stock, all of this is great for "growth"...
