#5 just gonna get worse

maybe but the majority of forecasts see growth;

optimists see as high as 3 or 4% GDP growth for calendar 2021, a lot see 2% or less, I couldn't find any of the traditional forecasts (economic forecasters at big conglomerates and major companies) that forecast negative growth

Truth is a lot of small business are not coming back and we have no well tested forecast models to predict how many. We also don't have models that can deal with the post pandemic corporate restructuring. Finally the amount of damage the Biden Admin will do to the economy is unknown.
