The post-coronavirus world looks exceedingly scary; here are ten things to note.
- Many global schools will rescind admissions to foreign students.
- Many scholarships will be cancelled as endowments, state funds, donors, etc try to recover from market collapse.
- Nations will become more isolated since pains are largely shared internally.
- The vision of the rise of all will dim because pains cannot be outsourced.
- In the coming months, massive dislocation in the job market will rattle nations and markets.
- Companies will collapse – and many startups will follow as funds become scarce; the rich losing $trillions will inhale first.
- Many African nations will experience nano-crises and strikes, with governments exceedingly overwhelmed to serve citizens.
- Crude oil and commodities will pay huge prices as nations tighten supply chains by ordinance of national security, well ahead of global trade.
- Coronavirus has killed thousands but its impacts will kill millions as governments cut social services, support to the poor, etc due to drying up of resources.
- Surveillance of citizens for better tracking will win over individual liberty: if grocery shops and farmers are required to track goats from farm to table, governments will push for more invasive tracking of humans to help containment of infectious disease.
