Overview

I am gathering smart investors, operators and others to brainstorm ideas of how the world will change post-COVID-19.
COVID-19 will accelerate some changes that were already happening, and also change the world in completely new ways.
These ideas are focused not on the next 12-24 months of the crisis but on how will things change in 3-5 years and longer.

Remote work / work from home / telecommuting will accelerate
Work
Transportation
Energy
Consumer
Education
Commercial Legacy Energy
People (and more importantly management) are more comfortable working remotely. I do not think full remote work will be the norm, but will be much more common to work several days a week from home or come to the office only to collaborate.
Video, cloud, etc. Suburbs
Commercial office and related services. Cities? Oil - reduced demand. Companies specializing in office wear and accessories.
More people living in suburbs? Bigger home/apt sizes for home office?

Higher education transformation - more remote learning, lower ranked colleges will suffer. More local.
Education
Financial
Health
Higher
Students will reconsider taking on tons of debt for a middle or bottom tier university. Top universities will be ok as credentialing factories and will broadcast online to others to earn certificates. Fewer foreign students paying full price to subsidize domestic students.
Online education, vocational training like Lambda for coding. Kids staying local for college.
Low ranked colleges will go out of business

China - more adversarial relationship
Globalization
Politics/Govt
Trade
Realization that China is not a trustworthy global player. Pullback globally. Wages have already gone up, but sunk costs in factories meant companies couldnt leave. Now will gradually pull back.
Hong Kong will be brought much closer. Maybe Taiwan eventually?
Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, other Asian allies. Mexico? Domestic manufacturing especially in key industries like semiconductors, etc.
Both economies. War will be financial and informational.
I believe we will see a renewed manufacturing push on all things essential to our country. Especially medical and companies like Apple manufacturing a larger number of their products locally.

Supply chains will be simplified - more domestic
Financial
Globalization

Companies will want more control over supply chains to avoid disruptionーa push for vertical integration. And some industries will be deemed in the national interest. less just in time, better knowledge of tier 2 and 3 suppliers, more in house, more domestic manufacturing. Near-shoring - will bring back some manufacturing from China to US and more likely Mexico.
Mexico. US manufacturing. Robotics. 3D printing. Automation. Blockchain to track supply chain Rare earth metals outside China
China Shipping Lower corporate profits, higher cost to consumer Lower US consumer purchasing power
Illegal immigration will be lower. Lower near-term work in US. LT more work in Mexico.

People more reluctant to go to restaurants for a time. Post COVID? If safe, then eating out could rebound like it was before even if many of the pre-COVID restaurants go out of business. Will also be structurally more expensive.

Single family rental REITs will expand inventory with housing prices likely lower and will use iBuyers. Consumer finances will be strained and iBuyers can facilitate sale leaseback transactions (from owning to renting but stay in the same house).
