Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In my circle of retired and semi-retired friends I am starting a conversation how life will have changed after the pandemic and will citizens be better or worse off for it.

The economic and financial hardship will be similar to a major event such as the aftermath of World War I, the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and years of depression: huge unemployment. Many businesses, community services, corporations will fail and won't recover. Similar to the year 2000 and the digital impact, once again the super companies will get a boost and will determine the fate of mankind. Let's say the trillion $$$ corporations or those above $500bn.

Education will get a remarkable boost into the digital age and so will the financials, banking, community services of cities, districts, states and countries. Robots will spread like a new automation virus. AI will be used as consultancy.

Those are some of my personal thoughts.

Remarkably, the CoV-2 pandemic will see the overthrow of Trump and his Conservative stooges. Regardless of the surge in popularity of the moment, as the crisis smothers the US economy and too many lives of Americans are lost causing grief and hardship, after the Summer the ratings for president Trump will slump into a normal one-third, his hardcore supporters. Not sufficient to win another term as the incumbent.

The predicted "End of Globalisation" and America into isolation from planet Earth will be reversed. Political leadership and insightful corporate leaders will follow the policy of multilateralism into this decade as "building the wall" is a BIG FAILURE.
