Analysis: What makes a business essential depends on where you sit

BY ROSS RAMSEY

Nonessential businesses in Texas (and elsewhere) have been told to close — a measure intended to increase social distance and to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. But every business is essential to someone.  :snip: 

An essential business, by one definition, is one that society cannot operate without. It’s essential to all or most of us. That calls some obvious examples to mind: Hospitals, medical practices, police and fire and other first responders, grocery stores and utilities. You get the idea.

By another definition, it’s almost any business with a payroll, one that’s essential to the people it employs and who depend on their paychecks for food, shelter, clothing and everything else they need.  :snip:
