The coronavirus pandemic is “doubly terrifying” because the U.S. has “a complete nitwit as president who understands nothing, listens to nothing, judges nothing except by the stock market and is endangering the American people,” says leading economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University.
