Default 2020 vs 2021?

Just wondering what the general consensus is. Iíd truly like to be optimistic that 21 will be a better year but I canít honestly foresee it. Others please share your thoughts.

Depends on what state you live in .
Red states that are open are going to be much better for peoples mental health and wallets, kids going to school, places open, gyms, restaurants etc.

Blue states is all doom and gloom from the tyrant governors, locked downs, no kids in schools , parents trying to figure out how to be teachers and stay home and earn a living etc .
These democrat states already run like $hit with huge deficits , the loss of the tax income making it even worse, how is that going to work out? . Biden probably put us into more debt when he bails out these dumps.I`m sure that`s what they`re hoping for .

There`s no way all these shut down and destroying of small businesses is not going to have long term affects .. just waiting for it to catch up .
All I see in Nazinois is businesses closed , closing, or about to close .mall strips and stores getting boarded up. It`s a $hit show and our fat a$$ governor just sits by still posting some bull$hit corona numbers.
That can`t be without consequences.

It’s all in what you make of it. I do not believe it will return to normal like 2019 was, however I’m looking forward enjoying life as much as possible.

The S&P is up 13.2% 4'th quarter and 18.4% for the year. In the latest poll of people with 1m in investible assets 70% are predicting a positive to strong market return for 2021. Demand for consumer goods remains high and real estate prices are predicted to rise another 6% with not enough inventory to meet demand. Interest rates will likely remain low for quite some time fueling the above predictions.

As vaccines become more widely available I expect to see vaccination passports be required in certain situations.

It will all break down to your situation IMHO. Those of us on solid ground will be fine but the people living hand to mouth are seriously screwed--And as with everything lately I think your thought pattern will vary with political affiliation.

I remember 2020 for a great boating season. Gas as cheap as .89. Buying some nice clothes instead of going to bars, restaurants, concerts or casinos! I dread 2021...

Covid could shut everything down again if the governors get crazy about things.

2020 was miserable for brick and mortar retailers/bar/restaurants and I don't think 21 will be a windfall year for them either. I think landlords for commercial space will have more vacancies and will have to lower prices to get tenants. Tenants will sit on the sidelines and try to time the comeback. Residential landlords will start evicting deadbeat tenants, that bad "no evictions" idea should have never been enacted.

2020 had a pretty good year with cars, 0% loans cleared out the lots nicely, I'd suspect in 21 the dealers won't load up on inventory until they figure out what Biden will do. Boats/Rvs had a good year but like cars, I'd bet less inventory will be stocked until they figure out what the new administration is going to be like. Nobody wants to get stuck with 200 pontoon boats and pop up campers at the end of the season.

Think postitive, be positive and maybe it will turn out decent............got 361 more days!

I thought 2020 was great. Except for about a month when couldn't go into gym or a bar. I worked just like normal. Business was up and we had best year ever. Gas was down. Got extra money from government to buy extra beer. One poker run I went to was pushed back a month. I missed no boat events I had planned for in 2020. My money went down in market just left it there and it finished up. Honestly I hear everyone complain but for me 2020 was great. I dont watch tv news. I dont do social media so all that BS doesnt affect me.

Same here 2020 was great and 42 years in Bizness and 2020 was the best year we've ever had & more work then could imagine. We had to push 2 months of work into April & May of 2021 since weather closed in .. Only downfall for 2020 was lost my pops due to negligent Florida Hospital and no it wasn't Covid even thou probably whats on the hospital papers ... Don't watch the news and avoid the B/S and things will keep keepin on
