Trillions were lost as the world marketplace came to a standstill.
UNCLE WALT’S INSIDER H.Q., SVALBARD — They’re calling it the “Lost Tuesday.” Flights were canceled. Public transportation ground to a halt. World stock markets failed to open, and online trading was minimal. Busy financial districts and downtown economic centers became ghost towns.
But did you even notice? Of course not — you were home bingeing on the glut of Disney, Marvel & Star Wars content you suddenly had at your fingertips with Disney+. But then, so was everyone else.
“Decades to recover”
When Disney’s new streaming service finally went live, it seems nearly every person where it was available just stayed home from their jobs, eyes glued to their screens. No one seemed to care that the work necessary to keep the world running was not getting done.
We at Uncle Walt’s Insider suspect that the devastation will be long-lasting, and the economy will take decades to recover. We’d go out and actually research all this and confirm it for you, but we’re a bit busy right now. We’ve been watching Disney+ since Tuesday.
