Fake News Alert – New Russia and China Propaganda Campaign Blaming UK for Coronavirus Design

In reaction to the coronavirus quarantines, Canada and the US are implementing emergency funds to help with large numbers of unemployment. The quarantine continues in the most US states and in Canada. As of April 6th there are 1.3 million cases and over 74,000 deaths around the world. In the US nearly 400,000 are infected. The states that have the largest numbers of infected are New York. Louisiana and Michigan.

Coronavirus Death Toll Analysis on Global Scale

Coronavirus continues to be a global pandemic. Many nations imposed quarantines and are dealing with a shortage of medical supplies. As of April 7th, the death toll around the world is over 79,000. One of the hardest hit and less prepared is Italy. The Italian media admited recently that their coverage of doom and gloom may have contributed to mass hysteria and fear in the nation.

Post Coronavirus Global Economy

The Kremlin warned the nation to be ready for a global economic crisis due to coronavirus. Russian numbers of infected continue to increase. In the US, it is now recommended for everyone to wear a mask or a scarf while outdoors.

British Queen Elizabeth II compared the coronavirus pandemic to World War II. Currently, the global crisis has a unique set of factors and certain circumstances. It is a multidimensional crisis that is triggered by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Imbalances continue to expand, including manufacturing. Hence, there is a growing issues of import and export around the world.

The Kremlin in Moscow.

The budget deficits, what the developed nations across the globe get to experience shortly, are an unrestrained attempt to pour more money into the economy at the expense of the state budget. This will create a competition in the public debt market and an increase in interest rates.

The public debt of many nations around the world is skyrocketing, amounting to more than their annual GDP. Debt servicing is already becoming a serous issue. This could be a setting for mass default.

Many economies also suffer from insufficient economic diversification. The global economy is widely acceptable when everyone works according to equal rules in their niches of the economic process. The decline in the service sector, which in some countries accounts for 60-70% of the economy, almost guarantees huge turbulence in the economy and, as a result, sharp downturns. All this is taking place under conditions where free trade is partially blocked thanks to the sanctions policy of the US and the EU.

There is also a  liquidity crisis generated by many of the previous imbalances. This is caused by problems with the distribution of financial assets and the lack of adequate control over the distribution of financial flows.

There are also unemployment issues that continue to be a problem for many nations. In US and Canada the numbers continue to increase rapidly.

Also, the Russia-Saudi oil war is distorting the oil market.

As with anything the coronavirus pandemic will end, likely by the end of summer.  A majority of the developed nations governments are hoping the economies will return back to normal after the pandemic subsides.

The economy after pandemic will minimize human participation in production processes and interaction with consumers. In such cases, a person will still be needed as the creator of such systems and structures, or as their controller. This change is already noticeable, as certain bank chains in the US are installing artificial intelligence bank machines, which eventually will phase out tellers. The roll out is coinciding with coronavirus closures and a skeleton staff.

It is for certain the pandemic will change how we view certain recreational activities and service industries. Things might never be the same.

If you own a small business, you can compete with much larger competitors with these strategies. You won’t need a massive marketing budget to make your business stand out from the competition.

Your Brand and Logo

How Tik Tok Convinced Me Kids Should Not Have Phones in Their Bedrooms at Night

My adult son is a popular Tik Tok creator whose videos have had millions of views. So when he decided to hold an all-night live event, I planned to watch—at least for a while.

At the time, there was a trend where Tik Tokers would hold live events to watch them sleep. (Yes, my adult mind still doesn’t understand it.) My son thought it would be funny to set up his creepy Charley McCarthy ventriloquist doll outside his bedroom door, and asked viewers to watch to make sure the doll didn’t move.
