    We could well be in for a rash of rights issues:-
    AIA
    AIR
    SKC
    SKT
    Possibly rest home operators,and of course NTL as they are experts at rights issues and would not want to miss out!

    Ski season's going ahead & just imagine, for the first time in decades there won't be massive queues for the lifts etc. plus plenty of car parking in the upper car parks.

    If we go into lockdown crime will be a thing of the past.The police could also have a bumper season as they could pour more resources into cold cases.

    In the future, people may have to be vaccinated (covid-19, measles, mumps etc) if they want to travel internationally.

    Increasing realisation that we are a society that needs to look out for each other and work together not just a collection of self obsessed individuals.

    Blueprint on ways to actually reduce environmental destruction for future generations. E.g. less air travel and unnecessary commuting emissions.

    Refresher on what is most important in life - people, relationships, community, planet, health, freedom.

    Hopefully a recognition we need to invest more in the health system and the fortitude to do so.

    Learning experience to help us be prepared for future pandemics including biological warfare or terrorist acts.

    Great prices to buy shares for Kiwisaver and investment funds.

    We are experiencing Industrial Revolution 4. IR's are system disrupters
    IR4 is being tempered by very powerful "old school" business groups.
    Covid lockdowns could be the catalyst for another leap up in the continuing communication revolution and an overdue push forward for a Biotech revolution.
    Expect new things (some appearing suddenly which we haven't thought of yet) to emerge to help us increase our standard of living and the make businesses much more efficient.

    Biochips as your currency and ID will make perfect sense and be hard to argue against I suspect.

    This is neither a positive or a negative but I've been thinking that hotdesking in businesses, which has been all the rage for some years now, along with shared workspaces to some extent are now going to have to be rethought. The best advice on social distancing in the workplace is to either work from home or for everyone to have well-spaced working areas that are for them alone. Otherwise, unless you are sanitising stations between workdays/shifts very expertly, you run the risk of spreading a contagion right through a workforce.

    Working from home will definitely become more acceptable.

    I wonder if a newfound interest (perhaps out of necessity) for fixing things and "making do" will be a positive consequence of this crisis.

    For reference, I am one of those dreaded millennials, and in the past have definitely been guilty of buying something new when I could have fixed what I already had.

    The webcam on my laptop broke recently (great when you're trying to video conference from home) and I'm out of warranty. In the past I probably would have gone and bought a new laptop and justified it because I "need it for work". However, I remembered I had an old webcam with a broken stand. With help from dad managed to get it mounted on a tripod (which I already had) instead and working perfectly.
