A PSA about COVID and vitamin D

Writing comics about the economy is not the road to immoderate wealth that one might suppose, which is why I have a day job writing about medicine. So when I started reading about how vitamin D can help with COVID-19, I wound up making this:

More pages about the stock market!

I just updated the piece on the stock market–the new pages start at page 14. You can find them at economixcomix.com/home/stockmarket. Per a reader’s suggestion, I’m also putting them below:

New piece on the stock market

So, this isn’t quite the most urgent thing going on right now, but you may be wondering why the stock market seems so divorced from the real economy these days. I wrote a piece (in progress) here: https://economixcomix.com/home/stockmarket/

Behold the timeline!

So, back in early 2016 Dan and I did a timeline of economists and economic thought for Les Arènes, the publisher of the French translation of Economix.
