    Wet Markets, assuming China doesn't screw around on the issue which I am not entirely certain they will not.

    That's an unfortunate choice of words considering the discussion that was just had above.

    Lots of small companies because big corp. with a lot of money and the right political connections will get the lions share of the aid packages.

    MTG collector cards took a hit, because people enjoy to play it in the store TOGETHER !

    Many people don't play the game at all.
    They are purely investors.

    Rumor is that they don't even invest with their own money.
    They borrow money to buy these cards.

    What's going to change in the long run? Hopefully the world's response to pandemics.

    What will hopefully never return due to this? Donald Trump as president.
    Lol! Cheer up, there will be a time when he will never return as President.

    Really, really, really hoping "idiot politicians in power who actively increase the level of the threat by seeding misinformation at every opportunity." If pandemics shutting down the country and killing more than our last major terrorist attack doesn't do it, nothing will.

    The only thing China has banned over the last 7 days since the re-opening of those markets is people taking photographs in them. Nothing has changed and they are behaving like it never happened.

    Handshakes and hugs will probably be taboo for a year or two after the pandemic is over, but they will return.

    I know it's naive to even hope so, but I would love if the trend towards packing cities deneser and denser would at least slow down for a while after all this. Especially every company trying to locate their offices into the middle of the fucking city despite this being just a major annoyance for workers and business guests.

    With a bit if luck some of the really scummy companies like Gamestop will go under, but I personally doubt it. I would dance out of joy if we got to a point where people just take some basic hygiene seriously, where showing up to work sick is actually frowned upon and maybe adopt the whole asian attitude of wearing a mask if YOU are sick, though I have little hope in that regard, since most people still do it wrong.

    It seems that city density ultimately relates to the "average building height" of a city. I don't see why there's anything wrong with increasing demand for taller and taller buildings.

    I suspect that if it does, it will be similar to a very messy divorce.

    Dude we're only three months into this decade, we have plenty of time to turn it around and make the 2020s the best decade. We just need to defeat the evil virus.

    Now you can get a good condition Tabernacle of Pendrell Vale for under 1.5k... cool right?

    Anyways I think the MTG market should bounce back once the competitive tournaments starting again.

    Smart MTG investors should dump like majority of their collection before this Pandemics begin, and a lot of successful MTG investors profits a lot already so this thing will do very little damage to them.

    This time is far worse than 2008.

    First, it is global, not just US real estate. China will not help US this time.

    Second, if Trump declares "all clear".
    Will you go watch movie or NFL? Even better, a cruise ship !

    Personally, I really hope people learn a lesson from this virus.
    Not just another "save by the Fed Reserve's easy money".

    Hopefully wet markets. Actual breeding ground for viruses.
