COVID-19, many believe, has thrown the world into unprecedented disaster, and to those believing so, the future looks bleak at best. But what if the opposite will prove to be true? Speculation is a noble occupation, futures studies an academic discipline, so we hazard a brief preview of the enormous economic and societal gains for which the COVID-19 crisis may have just sown the seeds.
While in recent weeks we have been focused on establishing and comprehending as deeply as possible the immunological "big picture" in viral epidemics from so far only partly interconnected evidence in the specialist literature, in order to derive actionable recommendations, we briefly summarize what has emerged in terms of feedback as well as additional insight with regard to our first article since it appeared.
The following is a brief summary of our original article "The logic of surviving the Coronavirus pandemic". If the risk of dying from the infection is drastically reduced, the Coronavirus pandemic is immediately reduced to the status of a normal wave of influenza.
Stock market forecasting is not an exact science. That said, the intuition of the logician with 23 years of market experience screams: "This was the bottom!" Let's see what may be behind this intuition.
In this article, we suggest what we consider, in large part potentially instead of drastic quarantine for basically everyone, to be the most logical and most promising approach to surviving the Coronavirus pandemic, both on an individual and on a systemic level. We draw conclusions from information uncovered and discussed by the medical scientific community and by medical practitioners, and give practical instructions on what to do.
At loico, we had planned to launch our operation with a relatively comprehensive suite of articles, often fairly ambitious, on which we are working concurrently. Due to the escalating Coronavirus crisis, we feel forced to abandon this roadmap and to immediately start contributing what we can to the amelioration of the situation and its eventual resolution.
