Tuesday’s highly interesting read dealt with changes that we’ll see in society because of the coronavirus.
Two days later, today’s read again examines areas that will definitely change. The column is by Kurt Schlichter, a name partner at a growing Los Angeles trial lawyer, and a retired Army Infantry colonel with a masters in Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College.
The obligatory tease:
The pandemic and the response are going to not change some things much at all. For example, once the economy gets rolling again the survivors will rally and we’ll knock unemployment way down while pumping the Dow back up. But other things are another story. Some things were changing anyway, and this body blow is going to accelerate the trends towards creative destruction as old ways of doing things fade away quicker than expected and new ones come to the forefront. We’re going to see many areas where change was always coming, and now it’s come faster. In many cases, it will help crush our enemies, which is awesome.
What changes? Schlichter’s entire column is here.
