It is too soon to assume that “things will go back normal”, Ever.
We do not, yet, know just how serious this viral outbreak will, ultimately, become. We have already seen not just our own leaders, but government and
scientific leaders the world over, repeatedly forced into playing “catch up” to the spread and development of the disease.
Separately, but undeniably related, we have, and continue see, the Worldwide financial impact this outbreak is wreaking. Some have suggested,
not without apparent evidence, that even if this viral outbreak had not occurred when it did, that the entire world’s entire economic system was
“living on borrowed time/(money)” and was doomed to collapse at any moment.
We are experiencing a “perfect storm”, a confluence of drastic world wide change, perhaps more profound than a world war (which would, at least be
a sort of “known entity”, with well understood parameters) the likes of which we are unfamiliar.
We cannot yet see the light at the end of the tunnel; we can, for now, only hope that there will be that light.
So we can only keep moving forward, in hope.
We should not, at this stage, contemplate what the financial landscape may look like when this is over, because we have no experience of what
“this” will do to the very concept of an “economy”.
At the same time, this unprecedented occurrence could be an opportunity to define how a rebuilt economy Could designed.
Disaster is but another word for opportunity.
