This century the vaunted American middle class has bottomed out and the place has started to look more like the ‘developing’ world, with a definite underclass. However, lacking generations of feudal tradition and clinging to the myth of being a classless society, Americans couldn’t just bring servants into their homes. So venture capitalists did it for them. Uber and Postmates and DoorDash and all of these ‘gig’ economy companies simply created a giant pool of servants that you could call on demand. That’s all they really do. The gig economy is just a giant collection of servants.
Interesting — 10 antigen tests for EUR135. “Point-Of-Care Covid-19 antigen test that reveals if a person is currently infected with SARS-CoV-2 virus”, “a rapid in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen.” Accuracy figures are decent: relative sensitivity of 97.3%, relative specificity of > 99.9%. Provides a result after 15 minutes. (Obligatory caveat: “for professional use only”)
