From the Key Takeaways: "[1] When stay-at-home orders can be lifted safely, the private sector will drive economic recovery, provided that bad policy does not get in the way. [2] Government-directed economic activity, misguided stimulus, poorly targeted checks, and unrelated state bailouts will derail the great American economic recovery. [3] To enable a quicker, stronger rebound, Congress should avoid economic distortions and remove barriers to working, hiring, entrepreneurship, and investment."
