Quarantine Days: A Sea Change

Full fathom five thy father lies.
Of his bones are coral made.
Those are pearls that were his eyes.
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell...........The Tempest, Act I, Scene 2

The economy post coronavirus is likely to look a lot different.  Robotization of the work force  in grocery stores and shipping warehouses is likely to be vastly accelerated.  People are likely to get used to ordering most things online.  I don't think the cruise ship industry is coming back anytime soon.  I wouldn't be surprised to see most trucks become robotic several years sooner than currently expected.  The airline industry will probably be a ghost of its former self.

Forget the handshake.  A bow and a namaste is safer.

Will unemployment persist after coronavirus?  Will the enormous debt undertaken by the US cripple the economy for decades?
