MARGARET BRENNAN: But twelve hundred dollars takes you a lot farther in Nebraska than it does in California. How do you want people to be spending this money?

STEVEN MNUCHIN: Well, there's really three components of this law now that protects the American public. And the President was determined that we protect the American workers, since it was not their fault that we shut down the economy while we kill this virus. So the first component is small business loans, which about half of the companies in the U.S., people will be able to get small business loans and pay their workers for eight weeks. So we encourage people to do that and get them back to work. Two, they'll be enhanced unemployment insurance. And three, as you said, there'll be these— these checks in the mail or direct deposit. It's really bridge liquidity for people as they go through these difficult times.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Bridge liquidity for about eight weeks?

STEVEN MNUCHIN: Well, I— I think the entire package provides economic relief overall for about ten weeks. Hopefully, we'll kill this virus quicker. In the end, we won't need it, but we— we have liquidity to put into the American economy to support American workers and American business.


10 weeks...$1200.  Agreed it's more for families, but it's still $17/day for 10 weeks.  Again...instead of posting links....please explain the math if that's wrong.

So i watched it and heard the same thing.  He said that the stimulus will support the economy for 10 weeks in direct response to a question about the checks for people.  

Since we both missed it, exactly what did he say?  How long is that money supposed to last?

 
Here you go:

I'm sure you can read it yourself.

And you know that it's not $1200 for a family, right?

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Sunday said that he expects Americans to be able to survive for two and a half months on just $1,200, which is about $17 per day.

You might deeply believe in science and common sense based on science, sird, but you seem to strongly believe in a president who clearly does not. Just look at the quotes of Trump that fill this thread and the Covid thread.

Not to pile on here but this belief

President Trump exudes common sense. That is why half of American adults support him.

has got to be one of the dumbest and most completely out-to-lunch things I've ever read in this forum.

During the 2016 campaign I warned that Trump would be a disaster. And I used a gif like this to make my point: 



https://giphy.com/gifs/memecan...


Enough adults in government and business kept Trump from doing serious damage... But our luck ran out and here we are.

You nailed it Scott.  

This confusion of science with 'common sense' may explain in part why so many fellow citizens are unscientific in their views and indicates to what extent large swathes of society do not understand what science is.

For that matter, all kinds of folks with undergraduate science degrees do not understand what science is.  Scratch the surface and you will find that their understanding of probability and statistical theory is typically poor (or close to non-existent).   

Uncertainty?   Risk management!?!!    Whatz dat?  
 
It is much easier to understand that the world was created in 7 days than anything you want to explain that involves millions of years and selection.  The world is flat....just look at it.  

Beyond just the science undergrads, we're producing more and more "graduates" in general who aren't able to solve problems, consider options, appreciate unknowns.  We've gone too far with specialization and testing to the point of decreasing broad skills.  Eliminating electives like art and music not only potentially limits the quality of art (with fewer introduced to something they may love), but is going to have a dramatic impact on cognitive abilities over time.  OK...this is getting off track and I could bore anyone who alive with my concerns for the future of education...but Scott's comment about disproving common sense couldn't be more accurate.
