Global Recession

So when will it hit? I'd say late 2020 to early 2021 if China and Trump aren't able to strike a deal by then, though I'm certain at least one them will back off to avoid it.

Perhaps even earlier with all the stock markets leaking share prices like sieves and companies going out of business on a growing scale. Once the Dow Jones, FTSE, Hang Seng, Nikkei, and other such indexes enter into a repeat of what happened over a decade ago, you-know-what is going to hit the fan and the global economy is going to suffer for it as a consequence.

Product sales, interest rates, consumer confidence, tourism numbers, etc. You name it, it will plummet from way up in the proverbial sky and land on freshly-dried concrete. Maybe those young'uns should have laid off the smashed avocado on toast.

Another one of those? Please, no! I'm fed up with all the recession jokes I had to endure in school and the media during the last one.

But noooooo, Italy's policies are wroooong, it's the fault of the currentgovernment that our economy went to hell, it's not like there has been 11 years of friggin' abandon and overtaxation and currently the global economy is going to hell as well; it's only the Italian economy and it's only the fault of Italy.

YEAH, LET'S PUSH MORE EUROPEAN MANDATED TAXATION, LOW INVESTMENTS AND FOREIGN BUYOUTS, PLEASE EUROPE-SAMA HARDER.

This thread is one page and people are already blaming avocados.

Avocados are the food of the future. Just accept this and move on.

Trump first and foremost thinks through the eyes of a celebrity and he is strongly motivated with being re-elected, more than he is motivated by any lasting beef with China. I say this as impartially as possible.

So yes, the Trade War will only get bad up to a certain point, or at least until 2020.

That's going to go back up after people eventually stop trying to quarantine a non-quarantinable virus.

Italy wins the silver medal behind Iran for being the dumbest country in the world: cancel Masses but don't cancel football events. Why am I not surprised?

You guys know that common influenza is causing between 250.000 and 650.000 deaths worldwide - yearly. Right? For example

Deaths _attributed_ to influenza, but mostly from people with pre-existing compromised immune systems.

Which is why the coronavirus is indeed a big problem and the Olympics will very likely be cancelled.

The stock market is tumbling down. I don't think the crash can be avoided. Brace yourselves.

People work less effectively when they're sick. Or dead.

But hey, it's all just a bonus. Don't forget to check global warming coming to you this summer.

This Coronavirus thing... the s*it is gonna rock the world so hard there's no telling how hard it will destroy the global economy.

In Poland there are already businesses that are making ends meet: tourism, logisitics, entertainment, restaurants - everyone is already counting their losses. I assume it's the same for other countries. Especially when you think my fellow countrymen - we aren't exactly the best when it comes to putting aside savings for harder times. People are living day to day, and now the chain will be broken: no work, no payments. Each day I'm reading articles about how so many private contractors are forced to take radical steps like layoffs and even closing down the businesses. And we're like in the initial phase of the recession. All this while the government is taking more and more radical actions: closing the borders, assigning more police patrols or even the army to help keeping things under control (people staying in homes). Just a little bit and there will literally be a curfew, like in times of war.

I think we knew what was coming, but no one expected for it to blow up so fast and so hard.

Fortunately I have a job that enables me to work fine from home, an action that was requested globally for my company by our administration.

The silver lining to this catastrophic mess is that in addition to starving out the new virus, we are also starving out every other contagious sickness in existence as well.

I went in Romania last week for several concerts, once there every concert was cancelled, no plane tickets or hotel refund, in all a financial hole. Then back here in France, all my private students told they cancel all lessons until xxx, then University where I teach closed until xxx, so I said "well, let's focus on sport and lose some weight". Next day fitness club closed too.
Then I went outside to buy some proper food, all closed so I ended buying kebab and fries from Turks. The irony.

Not about politics, but my previous comment about losing weight then ending with kebab/fries, one of the less healthy thing to eat.
