Re: The AirBnB and house hacking bubbles

I hate AirBnb. Robs companies who follow the laws and rules of hotel regulation of business, takes away possible rentals which increases rental market, and in general makes local neighborhood which people live in, into tourist hot spots. Which honestly sucks for the common person.

Re: Is this a turning point in your life?

Not really.

Most of my family is safe for now and still waiting on a job response, which will take one to two more weeks.

Re: Long term macro effect of ncovid

Eh, there is still the problem with China's debt still being massive, knock-off effects from a world-wide recession, population stalling out and decreasing at the end of this decade (probably already) leading to it being stuck in the middle income trap much like what happened in Latin American count...

Re: Value of ERE in a COVID World

@Bankai: Personally, I am not of the "buy a f%cking armory" type, however I do want to buy pistol and a carbine in the future. Mostly out stemming out of the culture I grew up in, not being allowed to shoot guns growing up (mother HATES guns), and shooting a gun is another practical skill to have if...

Re: Value of ERE in a COVID World

@etryu: I came to same sort of conclusion as well. My main idea would essentially getting a suburban lot and work my neighbors. Even having 1/4 acre (~0.10 hectares) to your name alongside a house, will help you set up enough food to feed a family of four with vegetables*. Chickens help supply you w...

Re: Stock Market Blood Bath

bing Companies using cheap debt to create buybacks to inflate stock price, instead using debt to create a warchest, innovation/R&D, and create safety net in case of recession or economy crashing for some reason. Those that did got bit hard by this correction/recession, with companies like Tesla/Boe...

Re: COVID grocery/shopping procedures

The initial plan was to eventually go to Walmart at 2am or some other ungodly time. However, WMT already adapted and closed stores overnight so the employees have time to restock, so now with so many people also staying at home, I'm not sure what "odd hours" constitute anymore. For me, I went to ou...

Re: COVID-19

Eh, we still more than likely have a recession on the way for the entire world, which will also hurt China as well as it still depends on outside trade. If Depression becomes actualized, any good will people had for China, from delaying this virus will be gone. There has already been talks about cou...

The DOW went from nearly 30k to 20k within a month. And it has not even begun to hit the US like in Italy.

@Jin+Guice:
I don't know man. This is so much different from other financial crisis's I just don't know. All I know is a recession is pretty much guaranteed at this point, listening to my gut instinct.

Between this and Turkey starting to get involved in Libya against Haftar, who is backed by Russia, really makes me scratch my head as to what they are trying to do. Because to me, it seems to be not working.

Re: COVID-19

Not only that but Chinese people, especially males, smoke a lot more than western countries. That makes the average Chinese person more susceptible to pneumonia like virus, which COVID-19 is.
