How much longer until the "COVID-19" issue is wrapped up, do you think? Vaccines are getting rushed out and it seems like more businesses are re-opening where I live.
The longer term ramifications of the year we spent in pandemic are hard to estimate; I do predict the housing market to be affected the most. And it seems as though we'll see a shift toward more "work from home" jobs, as well as automation for things like cars, grocery shopping, food production, etc.
it seems as though the third world will likely face the most long-term ramifications by the disruption of society ...
I will be attending an anti-lockdown protest meeting today, not because I believe in the cause, but because I'm interested to see the other side of the issue. This incredibly lukewarm lockdown we have in America is also disappointing me, so accelerating the tendencies seems good to me (and I don't believe a one-off peaceful protest will affect the status quo in any meaningful way).
