The Wuhan Virus Will Impact the Land Market – Week 9

Risks vs. REWARDS

Amazing New Products and Companies

It is important to celebrate President Xi’s decision to prohibit domestic travel out of Wuhan but allow international travel to and from Wuhan. Combined with Xi using the 60 day delay of a truthful warning to the world so China could vacuum up all the personal protection items internationally AND buy a huge stake in the biotech company working on a Corona Virus vaccine … clearly demonstrates that the spread of the Wuhan Virus was intentional. Thank you, Xi!

So, I celebrate the Wuhan Virus by naming my face mask after President Xi of China. My mask is called “Xi Mask”. Putting on Xi Mask is bad enough but taking Xi Mask off is the equivalent of hand to hand combat with my glasses and hearing aids. Elbows flail, hearing aids fly, glasses get entangled, and I mutter “Bummer”. Well, not “Bummer” but I will not repeat the other things I say. Finally untangled, the nicest comment I make is its name, ______ Xi Mask.  Suffice it to say I detest wearing the thing.  Come on therapeutics and vaccine!

In mid-March if you or I walked into a store wearing a Xi Mask someone would call the police. Today, that only happens if you walk into a store and do not wear a Xi Mask. Quite a contrast in 60 days. But then, the grocery stores do not look the same as they did 60 days ago either. I do not know about you, but I am tired of this game and ready for my USA to come back!

At least we now have confirmation that Nancy and the Democrats in the House of Representatives also consider themselves “Non-Essential”. They voted on that issue last Friday and all but 18 of the Democrats in the House agreed. Were those 18 Democrats upset with Nancy because they did not receive their favorite flavor Designer Ice Cream? I wonder.

But, we need to talk about some extremely exciting facets of this Wuhan Virus experience. The first is that we have a front row seat on a global demonstration of the superiority of capitalism. The next several years will be the equivalent of a high-speed, joy ride in a two-seat sports car with the top down. Feel the wind on your face!  Hold on at the curves!  Keep breathing!  Can you hear the roar of the engine?  Awesome!  WOW!!!

There are so many new products that are and will be developed along with new companies created to bring them to the market that enormous wealth will be created! Contrary to the recent whining of the previous White House occupant who while in office clearly illustrated his motto of “Lead from Behind” (otherwise known as “I have no idea what to do”), President Trump and his superb team have harnessed American capitalism to address the Wuhan Virus.

Relative to the Wuhan Virus in the USA, the engine of Capitalism is ROARING. There is still some pain ahead, but we will look back on this experience and say, “The contest between the Chinese government and the USA regarding the Wuhan Virus was never even close”.

Consider these few data points:

  1. Already I have read about three different inventions using UV light to clean viruses out of cars, hotel rooms, and at the entrance to any place (building, airplane, etc.). More will follow.
  2. An acquaintance if mine has a son that works for the U. S. Patent Office. Recently he shared with me that biotech patent applications have quadrupled. They are swamped.
  3. With almost 200 Wuhan Virus therapeutic drugs and vaccines being developed by American companies alone, we are now enjoying announcements several times each day of the therapeutic drugs and vaccines in trials that are experiencing success.
  4. American businesses are building ventilators, masks, and other personal protection equipment at such a rapid rate that from mid-March to sometime soon we will have gone from almost no supply (Thanks Xi and Obama) to a SURPLUS that we can give to the world.
  5. Similarly, capitalism will move our food supply from disrupted to surplus probably by summer. Meantime, small producers and organic farmers are helping to fill the gaps.

I could continue but the point is obvious …“Capitalism Rules and Socialism Drools”! What a stark contrast with the current situation in Venezuela and China. Apparently, Nancy and her gaggle want the USA to be socialists. Why would any rational American vote to join the losing team? We will find out that answer this November.

The amazing investment and business opportunities that are headed our way will continue to contrast the wealth creation of capitalism versus economic despair of socialism/communism. Think about that the next time you put on your Xi Mask and walk into a store with some vacant shelves which is abnormal in the USA but is normal in socialist Venezuela and communist China. No Thanks! Totally not interested!

It will take 20 more months to fully recover from the abrupt shutdown of our economy. There are just too many ripple effects of what we did to save 2 Million American lives. But the USA will come back. Strong. As long as they are socialist/communist, Venezuela and China are toast.

“The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.”

(2 Corinthians 9: 6-8, New Revised Standard Version, Oxford University Press)

Next week, more “REWARDS” coming from the Wuhan Virus if we remain a capitalistic economy.  Capitalism builds wealth, socialism consumes it.

I serve an awesome God.  God plus one human makes a super majority.

Stay healthy,
