Life beyond Coronavirus / COVID19

Impact of COVID-19 on longer term trends, government policy and debt, economic growth, life-expectancy forecasts, medical research and investment strategies. Since 85% of humanity lives in emerging markets, mostly in nations with limited health infrastructure, the likely speed of Coronavirus transmission in such countries is critically important to understand. How COVID-19 will accelerate many existing mega trends, boosting profits for a wide range of businesses, while destroying others. Which countries and industry sectors are likely to recover first from Coronavirus pandemic and why. Longer term impact of Coronavirus on consumer behaviour and wider society.

Surviving the Coronavirus Chaos - longer term impact of COVID-19

Despite the overwhelming health care crisis in many nations caused by Coronavirus, many global trends will change less  than many expect. The Coronavirus pandemic will divide the world into three groups. 1. Emerging markets (high population growth, young demographics, very limited health care, rapid growth and resolution of pandemic). 2. Developed nations (low population growth, ageing populations, highly developed health care, intermittent health crises with extended lock-downs and disruptions). 3. Hybrid nations eg China (emerging market, ageing population, intermittent lock-downs and disruptions).  How will this divergency impact multinationals, global trade and longer term economic growth?
