I only have one singular perspective, though, and can't possibly think of every consequence. The below also started with thoughts from my wife, who is a family psychologist, and our 11- and 15-year-old children. We then opened it up to our personal networks to get as many inputs as possible.

<aside> 💡 As a side note, from my personal experience, older members of our family seem to think this current situation is no big deal, while I am finding younger people experiencing this current global state see it as highly serious and long lasting. I wonder if older experienced humans see this like a "moment in time" that eventually is smoothed over, yet younger people in life feel its severity greater.

We believe impact to education will be one of the largest across all sectors. We believe that certain families will choose not to send their children back to school for a variety of reasons, that will drive schools to have fewer students, lowering budgets and pushing down an already stressed educational system. The impact here may result in growth of homeschool programs and alternative schooling systems.
"I think I like homeschooling better than normal school - I think I am learning more."
"My kid seems happier, no more bulling, no more social issues."
If online commerce was one of the first blows to traditional real estate and retail, this may be the second hit. Even after the Mailbu fires, with the city effectively shut down for 60 days, many of our local restaurants and service providers did not return to business. Many of these storefront vacancies have not been filled even after a year.
"Our winter season is being returned to us, and the spring season probably won't even get shipped out. With retail being shut down - I don't think our brand can survive."
From my perspective as a startup investor the current process to develop and launch a retail storefront startup is very expensive, slow and complicated. If retail real estate holders want to attract new breeds of businesses that will attract the generation Z consumer, we need a much faster way to onboard retail offerings that don't involve 6 month lease negotiations with 5 year leases. Those days are done.
