Vanguard Investment Group Offers $1,000 To Vaccine Holdouts To Get Jabbed

Vanguard Investment Group Offers $1,000 To Vaccine Holdouts To Get Jabbed. By Tyler Durden.

Late last week … Biden … called on states to bribe vaccine holdouts with a $100 “mini stimmy” to get vaccinated …

Sure enough, just one day later, we also reported that Walmart had upped the ante and was offering $150 for staff to get the covid vaccine …

Vanguard is now offering $1,000 to employees who get vaccinated by October. The giant asset manager is extending the payments to all workers who can prove they’ve gotten a Covid-19 vaccine, even if they were inoculated before the firm extended the offer. …

Since Wall Street is all about following “thought leaders” we expect that within 48 hours, most financial companies will piggyback and also offer similar cash bribes to their unjabbed employees. At that point, employee envy will emerge and most US companies will be met with social pressure to do the same. And then there is the question of why aren’t these bribes retroactive: surely some 165 million Americans feel very stupid right now for not waiting a few months and getting one month’s rent for free.

Which in retrospect is a brilliant move by the Biden admin: instead of paying Americans directly to get vaccinated with the still experimental cocktail, the government has effectively outsourced the payment of stimmies to the private sector.

Which brings up the next question: if we went from $100 to $1000 in less than a week, where will this bribing auction stop? …

Now that society’s bribe “inflation expectations” have reset to four digits, nobody will bother to do anything for anything less.

What price for the last 10% to get vaccinated? Maybe five figures?

The Australian Government is promising changes in border and elimination strategies once 70% of adult Australians are vaccinated. What will they do if vaccine hesitancy and real-world data from vaccinated countries halts the vaccine uptake at 65%?

The Australian Labor Party just suggested $300 per person to get vaccinated, but that’s starting to look a bit shabby already.

Bribing people with taxpayer money? Not at all. It’s not coming from taxpayers (at least on the margin). Did you know that 37% of all the money in the world was created in the last year?
