They do less damage when they’re tinkering with the economy.

How do we dig ourselves out of this hole?
Take a lesson from the Chilean miners. Maintain positive mental & self discipline, do not over-eat, ration food and supplies, take care of your fellow human beings, choose a leader, assign tasks per experience and keep the faith.
