Yeah, we had a meeting today about hiring people. 5G rollout, edge clouds, etc. are not going to stop because of this. If anything, demand will be even higher as companies that aren't prepared for a remote workforce are at a significant competitive disadvantage to those who can make that shift immediately.

International capitalism is unable to. Nationalist capitalism works, but it is loyal to the nation state that underwrites it. Look at the companies who banked heavily on selling into China who are on their last legs. A long standing company like Ford Motor is trading at $4 a share. The United States does not have to continue with GATT/WTO. We can always pull out of that.
