Direct fiscal stimulus, to every adult, until the crisis is over. This was beyond obvious at the time, and it's even more urgent now. You recoup the money that went to people who "didn't need it" by having taxes.
Ideally, this is coupled to a rent / mortgage moratorium for anyone whose income is disrupted by covid-19 as well.
@hypomodern yes but imo don't stop UBI when this is over
@bdimcheff I'm OK with that too, modulo how we fund it :). But countercyclical crisis spending is just... well understood and basically everyone who isn't poisoned by Chicago school / supplysiderism understands it :).
