Rather than derail the other thread, I think we should have another to try and begin to make sense of what happens when this ends. Clearly the world is unlikely to fully resemble the way it was before, so it might be prudent to begin conceiving of what it may look like and how people can begin to prepare even now (reports today suggest that the worst could be over in another few weeks).
For example, the following doesnt bode well for the future of the EU,
In terms of economics are we looking at a protracted recession (indeed how likely is the virus to come back in the Autumn?). Or will it be a short sharp shock followed by Trumpian recovery?
In terms of property how likely are the many young Brazilian/Indian/chinese service economy employees to leave Ireland? Could this precipitate a rental price crash? What about residential market? Will we see a repeat of the aftermath of 2008? Worse?
What of Irish politics? Will this result in Leo and co being viewed as a safe pair of hands for the foreseeable?
Theres many more. Fire at will…
