What exactly is the economy?

General

If the economy stayed suppressed this way where almost 20% of it is idle, what exactly do we run out of?

1) do roofs magically disappear in 3 months? Do people who can repair them disappear? Or do we just don’t know whose “paper strips” should be transferred to maintain them?

2) does food magically disappear in 3 months? Do people who can grow food disappear? Or do we just don’t know whose “paper strips” should be transferred to maintain them?

Can folks who grow food give their food to folks that fix roofs? It’s possible right?

So when food and shelter are taken care of, for everyone, our sense of security also goes up right?

When we say we are killing the economy, what is that a proxy for? The idea of the economy didn’t really exist until we invented it. My cat doesn’t know what the S&P means and I know for a fact she is way more satisfied with her life than I will ever be.

Just sayin 😇
