All the talk is about what’s happening now re social distancing, limits on groups of people, working from home, schools closing, businesses laying off workers / closing down, self-isolation, Govt stimulus spending (running up the national credit card) etc and a general crash landing for the global economy as a result of impact on business and Govt policy in dealing with Coronavirus Fast foreword 12 months and let’s assume Coronavirus is still around but not the “pandemic” it now is. Govt’s have printed $ like crazy the past 6-12 months to keep society from falling apart (and maybe that worked), unemployment is double digit, some industries are totally destroyed (ie travel and hospitality), banks have been decimated by bad loans, insurers have gone to the wall as they can’t afford to pay claim (just to name a few that dominate share markets) and peoples savings are smashed (ie super or cash at bank used up due to unemployment). So how does a Govt and society that has been effectively closed down for say 6 -12 months and seen huge declines in economic activity and standard of living pull itself out of the abyss? The members of this forum are generally more informed and educated than the average person on the street who is only worried about where they get their next toilet paper roll from…… What has to happen (at the Gov't level) or may happen to get beyond what is unfolding before us. …….How do Govt’s and the private sector get back to some level of economic normality or are we headed for a “Brave New World” like some have forecast or will society recover like it did post the Great Depression??
