Obviously there’s a lot of potential answers to this and it’s hard to comprehensive. That’s okay. The goal is to make incremental progress on the broad topic and identify specific points that would benefit from further research.
Note: These questions are intended to provoke more babble than prune. But even the babbliest thing should be presented such that other people can build on it. So if you have a prediction, share the reasoning or data behind it as well.
Note 2: This question has more potential to get political than most. I’m not going to disallow that, because the political process is crucial to what’s going to happen in the next few months, but please tread very very carefully, and I’m going to be fairly aggressive at curbing potential demon threads.
