A consumer economy is designed to provide goods and services. It can operate via Internet and postal deliveries, but in the main, they want you to come into the shops, restaurants, bars/public houses, car lots, gas stations, to make purchases or eat/drink. Not having humans do that stuff kills it. It is not built to survive any sort of hibernation. And I haven't even written a word about how all this is killing the tourist trade and air travel. Socialism could survive this horror show, but it would be a battle all the same.
