Some fear slower recovery if re-openings don't ramp up

There are some economists that are concerned about the strength of the economic comeback from COVID-19, especially if we don't open up more businesses.

That's what Fox's Peter Morici wrote earlier this week. Hank Lewis at Lone Star College says a full re-opening would help. The recovery has been good, but has started to slow in some sectors.

"If we were fully re-opened there would be more people going to work," Lewis said. Only 37% of offices are open as of now.

Something else that would help would be getting stimulus passed.

"If that money gets spent on local businesses, that translates into income and gets the lifeblood pumping," Lewis stated.

The President is pushing for a skinny stimulus bill that includes $1,200 checks for most Americans.
