    Me too.

    I wonder if the anti-vaxxer community will die with this. Certainly some of those idiots are bound to see the light.

    This may be the most important change to take away from this ordeal

    But if the federal government doesn’t reassure people and it’s a federal government does not remain positive that would surely cost trump just as you’re saying right now. It’s Trump is president not a Democrat.

    throughout this entire situation there have been Democrats and Republicans doing great things to reassure people. This is an American issue not a democratic or republican one. President Trump needs to be a uniter here. I’ve been looking out for all the stories of unity. And finding them has been pretty easy. The Democratic governor of California Mr. Newsom has already praised President Trump and President Trump as praise governor Newsom.


    Forget about global warming or whatever Al Gore had. Forget about Nancy Pelosi and remember the great Democrats of American history.

    I will make one prediction, there will be sub committee hearings, they will last longer than the pandemic.

    Immediately, no change. Long term there might be some new thoughts popping into mainstream.

    I've also been low-key following which companies are doing a shitty job at managing the PR aspect of this. Gamestop will certainly go bankcrupt soon or after this crisis. People are not exactly happy about companies asking for bailouts whilst at the same time spreading money to shareholders either.

    In general, people are kinda waking up to being just cogs in the machine with no apparent value beyond their daily motor functions filling the balance sheet. It was good enough when they were getting their money, but now that they need something and get nothing but a kick in the arse...

    I wouldn't want to speak for the US, but in Canada, I expect a couple of things:

    1. A serious conversation on preparedness for the next pandemic/emergency.
    2. A serious nationwide conversation on a universal basic income. There were some plans for a trial in Ontario but they were cancelled a few months ago.
    3. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that swift action on large issues is possible. It's going to be a lot harder for the federal government to dodge committing to firm plans to meet our climate change goals.

    What I'd like to see:

    1. For the most part, the population has been calm and cooperative. I would like to see some sort of analysis of how large the outlier groups are/were and what can be done to minimize them in future emergencies. By outliers I mean the panicky hoarders on one end and the deniers on the other.
    2. Social media has really exposed itself as a source of misinformation that undermines efforts to inform the public in the case of emergency. I'd like to see some sort of plan for distributing the truth and combating lies on social media. I realize how difficult that is likely to be.
    good Post.

    I do predict that in the more immediate future we will have some sort of federal jobs programmed put forth. This will put people to work to build medical supplies and such.


    in a long-term future we might deal with a sort of inflation.




    in the long-term future cleanliness will be very very much considered important. Parks recreation center as restaurants will be very adamant about customers being clean.




    Interest rates I believe will be low in the future. The price of automobiles will go down to accommodate the economy. We will see a black market but we’ve always had that question is how big will the black market be interest rates I believe will be low in the future.

    How do you think this pandemic will change the US and other nations?

    Will it change the way we do business permanently, or is this just a blip on the radar?

    Do you believe that out of this global experience the travel and tourism industry will step up sanitation procedures.

    What permanent changes, if any do you predict for the future?
    None. We have had a pandemic of some sort every two years since 2004 and this one came along right on schedule and got us totally unprepared after all of the others we experienced. That is compelling proof that we have not learned anything...nor will we.
