The United States is likely to experience economic growth even as the Delta variant of the coronavirus continues its spread through unvaccinated populations. We should not overlook that qualifier; the vast majority of serious illness, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 in the US are among unvaccinated populations.
Expect the US Federal response to continue to focus on encouraging Americans to get vaccinated, while local governments and businesses work through an awkward and hotly contested series of local mask mandates, vaccine requirements and political posturing as the majority of US students get ready to head back to school.
If you enjoy our free newsletters, the team at Zeihan on Geopolitics asks you to consider donating to Feeding America.
The economic lockdowns in the wake of COVID-19 left many without jobs and additional tens of millions of people, including children, without reliable food. Feeding America works with food manufacturers and suppliers to provide meals for those in need and provides direct support to America’s food banks.
Food pantries are facing declining donations from grocery stores with stretched supply chains. At the same time, they are doing what they can to quickly scale their operations to meet demand. But they need donations – they need cash – to do so now.
Feeding America is a great way to help in difficult times.
The team at Zeihan on Geopolitics thanks you and hopes you continue to enjoy our work.
