I would think not much from a worldwide perspective. Demand in China has been dropping in most segments which Toyota plays in.

Its not just Toyota. Its hundreds/thousands of factories, closed down or severely limited capacity due to this virus. Expect shortages. Every day supplies like electronics, computers, TV's, iPhones, etc will definitely be in short supply for the time being.

If it goes global, and it probably will, expect a very large recession, perhaps like the 1929 stock market crash. Schools will close, businesses will close, no manufacturing, grocery stores closed, no fuel, no truck drivers delivering fuel/food/goods, people out of food, civil unrest. Basically, this can be the worst catastrophe the world has seen in a very long time.

We will know in a few weeks/months, how bad it is. Depending how bad it gets you might even see entire countries collapse and smaller war lords in control of certain areas, like what you see in Somalia.

Not to hijack thread, but why doesn't this have a name? SARS, MERS, and the common cold are all corona viruses if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure the Chinese want to keep geography out of this new diseases title, but if they don't want blame they shouldn't eat bats. Unless there's lots of obfuscation, I doubt if this will be as deadly as the Spanish Flu, or any other annual influenza outbreak for that matter.

Bought a third generation Corona in the mid-seventies. Used car lot. Owner said "lucky for you I'll give you an extra two hundred off because my father just died and I'm grieving. Get here with the money before ten Friday so I can go to the funeral." When I was paying him, I said that I knew he was in a hurry because the service was starting in a half hour. He said that he had to miss it, because someone else was coming in to pay for a car. Business ahead of family and all that.

Right out of the movie "Used Cars", but the Corona wasn't bad for something out of the mid-sixties. Think I traded in a Renault R16 on it. That's another story.

Dude, the common FLU virus kills far more in the US than any of the previous virus outbreaks have; this one included. I believe your commentary is totally irresponsible. Hey, as stated by politicians so it must be true, we have 10 years left on earth if we don't fix the climate!!

Egads, all the more reason to stock up on motor oil. And filters too!

At least if all goes to heck, we'll still have BITOG.
