World-renowned futurist on how the world will change after Covid-19
In the era of Covid-19, the world is expected to stay home and ''cocoon''.
Faith Popcorn, a US futurist who coined the term "cocooning", is on the line to The Money Show with predictions in this time of staying home and self-isolation.
We named that trend in 1981 - the advent of people working from home - and many other products like home delivery, telemedicine.
Now in this time it's coming raging back.Faith Popcorn, futurist, author, founder and CEO - BrainReserve
I think there is going to be much more use of online education. Working from home - not going to an office - is going to be much more acceptable. So I think that's going to stay. Alcohol sales - home delivery of alcohol is here and it's gone through the roof. Also marijuana sales here have gone up.
I think retail is going to have more than a little bump. Because people are so excited to walk into a store and touch something, see other people, smell some soap.Faith Popcorn, futurist, author, founder and CEO - BrainReserve
