From Chaos, Comes Order

I feel it is important to discuss what is happening at the moment. We're gonna break this down into 4 parts... Let's start with the virus. ​ **Part 1 - The Virus** Now, this virus. First of all, I just want as a disclaimer to say that it's important to rely on official sources of information regarding the virus since they would never lie to you... OK, so what's up? Well, here's what's up: This virus is the trigger for the biggest power play we've seen since 2001. This is a perfect excuse for an economic crash.

The main source of demand for equities has been corporations (i.e.stock buybacks). And this makes sense, incentives drive human behaviour. Pretty simple. Now, *this* is the really infuriating part.
