90% of GDPWas going to comment that you should use a 0 based graph because it looks terrible, and then I saw it actually does start at 0...

Covid is probably going to be at least a 10% contraction, so we'll probably hit upper 80s. Then the Covid loans themselves need to be added, so wouldn't be shocked if we hit 90%.
There is no reasonable way they will ever be able to pay these loans back. So the question should be, what happens when they don't?
