After The Virus

So, what happens after the virus? What are permanent changes in society?

I'm thinking 5-10 years down the line, circa 2025-2030.

A lot more people working at home, but what else? Increased productivity numbers in the West as people 'work' less, but achieve the same. Higher social spending, but by what degree? 5% tax increase? 10%?


Curious what you all are thinking.

Agree about increased social spending. More automation of lower level jobs? Get that UBI happening lol.

As far as the US, I predict a lot of mindless political finger-pointing and blame-shifting over the next few years. When it comes to more permanent changes, I think a lot will depend on how bad this actually gets. Denial is a powerful force but for most people it can only last so long once the bodies start piling up.

a lot of corporations will be saving $$ by having more employees work from home. Not only will they save $$ by reduced office space, but working from home will may also lessen one's yearly raise

I hope there's a shift in society.
Less thinking of money and more thinking of people and the fact we are the guardians this Earth.
We need different values.

I think it depends on how quickly the pandemic ends, how successfully our global economy recovers and how many lives are lost.

If we somehow get a handle on this and it ends up being a 6-9 month phenomenon then it's more likely to be a weird little "remember when we couldn't leave our homes?" moment in history. If it ends up being a full scale disaster then the fall out, social and political, could be huge.

After the virus: Will Smith will be living alone with his German Shepherd in a well-stocked apartment in New York, driving around in a Shelby GT Mustang, hunting deer. It's a good life, if you can live it.

I've discussed with friends how this might change London. It's such a fast-paced city. People are generally hectic unless it's the weekend and you're sharing pints with them. I wonder if it'll put things in perspective and slow the city down a bit if things go back to normal. I guess the longer this lasts, the higher the chance of it having a lasting impact. People might get so used to working from/being at home all the time that it'll make them rethink their lifestyle choices once the gates open again. Who knows.

I can imagine a Third Summer of Love on the horizon, either this year or next. The first few months after the pandemic ends will be a friendly and fun time with loads of great parties. If it ends in the middle of winter, well..

Agree with this - 2021/2022.

I also think a lot of new laws/procedures will be outlined so in the event of a future pandemic there is a more accurate "playbook" to follow.

Things I expected to be on the timeline for the next year++:

- UBI
- intl. travel requiring proof of vaccination
- paranoia about cash being contaminated and move to more touchless payments
- prepper/pandemic type preparation businesses cashing in
- will handshakes ever return?

In terms of the physical/social distancing aspect, these:

- public transit challenges
- crowded events (nightclubs/concerts/sporting/etc.)
- seating arrangements @ restaurants

...and GOD FORBID YOU SNEEZE/COUGH IN PUBLIC!
