Corona and Civilizational Learning

  1. Self sufficiency — people will do their own chores. Extreme people will grow their own food! International trade and inter-dependencies will get strained, especially with the world’s factory. The days of consumerism will hit a reset button
  2. Healthcare — for years now, I have heard analysts speculate that primary health care should not be at hospitals. Hospitals should become ICU / emergency rooms for Emergency / Secondary / Tertiary care. I recently followed a social media thread of cardiologists who were speculating on a trend of reducing heart issues in the last 3 weeks!! — this may however, mean a consolidation of medical facilities, increase in healthcare costs
  3. Return to self — the 21 day pause button has forced many to look inwards. Become measured. Read. Watch and learn. I always wondered how our earlier generation were so much wiser. They had the time and mindfulness to absorb what they studied. We live in a video game full of distractions. Post Corona may help many of us become measured and wiser.
