WEF's Klaus Schwab: "In all likelihood, unless the #pandemic evolves in an unforeseen way, the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health & mortality will be mild..."

New week-end thread w/ @spencerlatu

#Covid19 as catalyst for #WEF #greatreset
Written by Klaus Schwab & Thierry Malleret, Geneva, July 2020.

"Until 2011, Mr. Malleret was a senior partner at the Geneva-based IJ (Informed Judgment) Partners, an investment boutique for ultra-high-net-worth individuals."

#WEF #GlobalRiskNetwork…
"Malleret is the co-founder & principal author of the Monthly Barometer, an analytical and predictive newsletter on macro issues for high-level decisionmakers." - "Relevant to all; read by the influential"
#Systemiq & #WorldEconomicForum, "Building a Nature-Positive Future – Recommendations for Policy-makers to #Reset the #Economy through the Power of #NaturalCapital", July 2020.

"In total, $11.5 trillion has already been earmarked
for #COVID19 #stimulus packages globally1 & trillions more will have to be spent over the course of a long recovery. We now have an opportunity to ensure #nature is integrated into economies as part of a #greatreset..."
"The harnessing of regenerative #forest value chains can be accelerated through the introduction of #payment for #ecosystem #services to forest owners and managers as demonstrated by California’s #carbon #market." [p. 11]

#PES #CarbonMarkets #NetZero #EmergingMarkets
"Gov'ts can take creative approaches to corporate & sovereign (#COVID19-related) refinancing events... in the case of sovereigns, supporting important policy reforms and/or enabling #debt-for-#nature swaps." [p. 16]

#UnlockingCapitalMarkets #CorporateCoup
#Covid19: The Great Reset, p 297:

"Concomitantly, a sharp increase has taken place in the oldest form of #activism: #industrial action."


"In the US in particular, while many #whitecollar workers were riding out the #pandemic while working from home, many low-wage #essential #workers “out in the trenches” who had no choice but to go to work staged a wave of #walkouts, #strikes & #protests."

"As issues of worker safety, pay & benefits become more central, the agenda of #stakeholder #capitalism will gain in relevance & strength."

Branding/marketing are critical for #WEF corporate entities & ruling class - in order to obtain social license. #BLM #purpose #XR
"Most people, #fearful of the danger posed by #COVID19, will ask: Isn’t it foolish not to leverage the power of #technology...

They will then be willing to give up a lot of #privacy & will agree that in such circumstances public power can rightfully override individual rights."
"Dystopian scenarios are not a fatality. It is true that in the post-pandemic era, personal health & well-being will become a much greater priority for society, which is why the genie of #tech #surveillance will not be put back into the bottle."
"As more & diverse things and services are brought to us via our mobiles & computers, companies in sectors as disparate as e-commerce, contactless operations, digital content, robots & drone deliveries (to name just a few) will thrive."


"Trends like #telemedicine or remote working that expanded extensively during the confinement are unlikely to retreat – for them there will be no return to the status quo that prevailed prior to the pandemic. #Telemedicine, in particular, will benefit considerably."

" is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the world, a fact that inevitably slows the pace of innovation... the necessity to address the pandemic [] removed some of the regulatory & legislative impediments related to the adoption of telemedicine."
"The #speed of #expansion has been nothing short of breathtaking."

"In Britain, less than 1 percent of initial #medical consultations took place via video link in 2019; under #lockdown, 100 percent are occurring remotely."
"As the #habit kicks in, people who had never shopped online before will become comfortable with doing so, while people who were part-time online shoppers before will presumably rely on it more. This was made evident during the #lockdowns."

"as the habit of shopping online becomes more prevalent, it will depress bricks-and-mortar (high street & mall) retail still further – a phenomenon..."

Not a phenomenon - but a controlled demolition/crushing of independent & small shops, #cafes, #artisans, etc.
"We will be encouraged not to touch the products we buy. #Simple #pleasures like smelling a melon or squeezing a fruit will be frowned upon & may even become a thing of the past."

#SocialEngineering the #NewNormal
"The #EUGreenDeal launched by the European Commission is a massive endeavour & the most tangible manifestation yet of public authorities deciding not to let the #COVID19 crisis go to waste."

Growth Strategy for #4IR, Carbon Markets, Increased Militarism:

"We will see how #ContactTracing has an unequalled capacity & a quasi-essential place in the armoury needed to combat #COVID19, while at the same time being positioned to become an enabler of #mass #surveillance."

I can rest my long, boring & tired case - with this single sentence:

"With the #pandemic, the "digital transformation" that so many analysts have been referring to for years, without being exactly sure what it meant, has found its #catalyst."

"many [] tech behaviours that we were forced to adopt during confinement will through familiarity become more natural. As #social & #physicaldistancing persist, relying more on digital platforms to communicate [] will, little by little, gain ground on formerly ingrained #habits."
#Government - on knees & in servitude to, private capital.

"The Regulator"

"What was until recently unthinkable suddenly became possible... New regulations will stay in place."

#corporatocracy #C40Cities #GND #GreenNewDeal
"After a while, the enduring concerns about technological #unemployment will recede as societies emphasize the need to restructure the workplace in a way that minimizes close #human #contact."

"Indeed, automation technologies are particularly well suited to a world in which human beings can’t get too close to each other or are willing to reduce their interactions."
"Our lingering and possibly lasting fear of being infected with a virus (#COVID19 or another) will thus speed the relentless march of automation, particularly in the fields most susceptible to #automation."
"At a time when #physicaldistancing became an obligation, #robots were deployed in places as different as warehouses, supermarkets & #hospitals [] & and of course robotic delivery – a soon-to-be important component of #healthcare supply chains..."
3.2. #Mentalhealth &Well-being

"The #pandemic has had a devastating effect on mental health."

They knew what would happen. They know what is happening. They don't care. The shared bourgeoisie #Machiavellian ideology.
