    My parents talked to me about their lives as young children during the great depression. There wasn't enough to eat, food was rationed and people resorted to wearing sacks for clothes. Even if we go into another great depression there will be plenty of food this time. N.Z. produces enough food for about 40 million people, 8 times our population ! https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/120...conomy-recover Kia Kaha.

    Always good to put things into perspective.

    We might add as well that the rest of the world is not that lucky. World food supply will get bumpy due to lock downs, border closures as well as populist attempts of some food producing countries to stop the export of food.

    Good food is already now at risk of going off at closed / tightly restricted border crossings in Europe and Asia instead of feeding the people who need it.

    What is the good news in that? A country with a huge surplus in food production (and a low risk of exporting the Coronavirus) might be able to sell this surplus in the months / couple of years to come at a good price. Might be worthwhile to load up some more NZ agricultural stocks.

    I agree mate. Here's some history of the Great depression in N.Z. that puts the current situation into context. I see there's a dog who was famous back then
    https://nzhistory.govt.nz/keyword/depression Some good reading in there to chew up a few hours and put this lockdown into perspective.

    Good Buddhist Saying :

    You cannot calm the storm so stop trying.

    What you can do is keep calm.

    The storm will pass.

    An interesting idea from the top Israeli research institute (Weizmann institute) to beat the virus - exploiting one of the virus weaknesses (the long incubation period):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TQYu-eoygU

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/11/o...us-reopen.html

    While NZ might be already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (cross fingers and all these things it is not just a train moving into the other direction), the world as a whole clearly is not, and this proposed staggered lock down would be much better than keeping the economy in most parts of the world at a stand still.

    Good to see a really positive week on the Covid 19 front in New Zealand. In the last 6 days just one case that was a household contact. From what I have observed there has been no discernable community transmission since very early April. I think there is scope for encouragement that we are doing very well relative to the vast majority of other countries. Kia Kaha.
