    Is globalization over?

    Due to the coronavirus? I read recently online of a prediction that crossing international borders may become harder in the future due to increased scrutiny - and not just health related but financial, professional, and criminal background check scrutiny.

    I'm thinking such would make globalization harder. Rob

    The vast majority of people are not traveling internationally.

    It’s hard enough getting cargo into the country.

    I looked at cruises and most aren’t booking until 2022. I am not planning on going to Europe until then. I don’t want to get there and find things closed. I could see them screening for health and criminal checks but others not so much.

    Slowed a bit, but by no means over.

    No, I don't think it is. Looking at the world from various perspectives, I think the virus has actually put a more "global" focus on people, the environment... the world! Yes, people in general usually take a more local focus - their little corner of the world - but it's hard to deny causes in one place effecting other places, etc.

    Hope this made some semblance of sense - lol.

    Because of the virus my DIL hasn’t seen her parents in almost 2 years. She is looking at spring travel if they all are vaccinated.
