    What happens after this lockdown ends?

    I know the US is going headfirst into a lot of debt and it is scary. I would imagine other countries will be going through the same. We have kids waiting to finish school, teens waiting to graduate, and college students stuck in limbo only to be released to a fractured job market.

    I feel like this is going to cause a lot more problems than people are considering. It is looking to shape up to be a very hard stretch of 10 to 20 years trying to fix this. I heard house prices are already dropping and the housing market will be at an all-time low by the end of the year.

    Very scary times and this isn't even talking about the virus but the aftermath of the mess.

    Once it ends corporations will continue throwing money at China and we'll all sit here being treated like mongs.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    I hope that isn't the case. I think all countries should pull back from China. Not completely but at least like 50%. They need to get their crap together over there.

    Like it or not, we still need China in some capacity. Virtually all of our products are manufactured in China. That isn't a tie we can cut overnight. They have a stranglehold on our economies and there's not a lot we can do about it. I'm glad Trump's probably stopping funding the WHO though. At least that's a first step.

    I know. I can't tell you how many things in my home are labeled "made in China". Our countries should have never let them have so much power in our economies. It certainly would have made the US a stronger economy had they did more for themselves. Like kept jobs within the US and what not. I don't fully understand everything about it but it just seems like it is backfiring now for companies outsourcing cheap labor in China on a larger scale.

    I don't trust the WHO one bit. They have China in their wallet. I don't trust Bill Gates either. He is the biggest single funder in the US for the WHO. He also wants forced vaccination to be law all while refusing to vaccinate his own kids. Not to mention all the spying Microsoft does on people...The dude is shady as hell. I switched to Linux. I want nothing to do with Microsoft.

    I am not looking forward to the economic fallout this is going to cause. I am just grateful that I got to keep my job

    That is the part that is worrying me the most. I would imagine a lot of people will be out of work and they are only helping for so long here in the US. They may be handing out checks and what not now but that won't last forever.

    That's what I'm the most worried about as well. The disease is something I can comprehend and keep track of, but the economic impact over the next decade or so (for example, the hotel industry took 8 years to break even after 9/11) remains to be seen. We have well over 22 million claiming unemployment in the US alone, and with tons of businesses closing there won't be anywhere for them to re-apply to after this is all over. On top of that, all the unemployed people with no money can't just get out there and start businesses with no startup capital, so I don't expect that the void will be filled anytime soon. Expect to see a lot of vacant storefronts, people.

    I feel awful for smaller businesses, especially ones in the food industry. I feel like a lot of them will have to close for good after this. There are so many small businesses around where I live and the only ones that will stay afloat are ones that were allowed to stay open for this. Like places that could afford to be closed for a while are still able to be open as well so they are sucking in business from smaller ones. It is a mess.

    The only positives right now are that the gas prices are down and housing will be more affordable for people. Outside of that, a lot of people are going to be without work and I just don't see how the states will be able to help all these people on top of those families out there already depending on welfare, food stamps, and government aid prior to this.
