Planning for the post-COVID-19 era (21/03/20 18:35:40) Reply
    No point in pointing fingers: We are having an economic meltdown of huge dimensions. How are people who live in a country without welfare going to feed themselves when they lose their jobs? And how about food production that is dependent on migrant workers who are now banned from entering the country?

    I think we need to summon the existing and potential sci-fi writers of today of writing scenarios for an economy-wise sustainable containment of COVID-19. How many victims of the virus? How many victims of starvation and violence; how many divorces and beaten children - and how to prevent those disasters?

    There is a Nobel Prize for literature waiting, I'm sure. OTOH: Oliver Sacks never got it.

    Or maybe this is a job for the game makers? I have no clue about recent developments - it's many years since the first version of Civ.

    In Germany: A part of the yield will rot. As simple as that.
    A part of next year's crops won't even be seeded.

    Germany used to have 300,000 seasonal employees for the yield. As the borders are closed now (A pretty ridiculous measure towards the east European countries like Poland, but *not* vice versa), many crops just won't be harvested, probably especially asparagus or strawberries.

    I can't give any figures, though.
    Some clever farmers deliver stuff in their surroundings (which they are allowed to).
