I'm not quite understanding why the markets are going up considering the unemployment rate numbers that just came out.
The stimulus package being passed?

A feeling there might be the beginning of an end in sight?

The unemployment figures being in line with what was expected and so already priced into the market?

Loooking forward to a raking in huge profits on a busy Easter Sunday?

This thing is going to chance society.

I'm looking at this from my point of view. Many lawyers do traffic law. For some it's part of their business, for some it's all of their business. There is literally no traffic in Belgium now though. Which means no accidents, no fines, no court cases. If this lasts 3-4 months, you can bet many firms are going to feel this and will have to cut people.

And then there's the fact that more and more people will say they can always work from home. Which again means less traffic, but not just for a few months, but indefinitely.

This is just one little aspect in one area, but I'm sure there are many similar changes in other areas.

You act as if that's what it comes down to. It not that easy. It's not that easy at all. You as a lawyer should know we can write books about this debate.
people used to make similar arguments about the coal industry
