    The government would like nothing more for you to all believe the virus is the reason why they'll reset / digitise the currency. And it looks like a buyers paradise.
    'excessive' and 'healthy', in your statement above, are not quantifiable and hence mean nothing. They are woolly, vague, meaningless terms.

    As for a black swan event, you do understand what this is don't you?

    And for your ref, the black swan event here isn't the pandemic, it's the world leaders reactions to it and closing down whole swathes of the world economy. The pandemic was (kind of) forecast; what wasn't expected was virtually every country in the world going into lockdown.

    Just for the record, you didn't call this

    It *is* common knowledge (or at least an expectation) already. I've seen multiple posts across social media listing which companies where formed out of the 2008 financial crisis and how 2020/21 could cause another such resurgence in entrepreneurship. Necessity often does that.

    I'd previously assumed you the seeds of the squiggles you post here are form from the Daily Mail et al, but I now suspect its Facebook.

    Words don't have to be quantifiable to be meaningful.

    You're still out-classing pooper, but you're the best match to him we can offer.

    That is why we have credit records. Quantifying debt that is healthy and not.

    And you're inferring I'm dim?

    In respect of Scoots sentence, yes, the words do need to be quantifiable to have any meaning. Read it again, then come back and I'll accept your apology
