Analysts at Goldman Sachs expect global oil demand to return to pre-pandemic levels by 2022, citing a pick-up in commuting, a shift to private transportation and higher infrastructure spending.

In a research note published Thursday, analysts at the U.S. investment bank estimated global oil demand would decline by 8% in 2020, rebound by 6% in 2021 and “fully recover” to pre-coronavirus levels by 2022.

Gasoline was thought to stage the fastest demand recovery among oil products as a result of a pick-up in broader commuting activity, a shift from public to private transportation for commuting, and a higher use of cars to substitute air travel for domestic tourism — particularly in the U.S., Europe and China.

Diesel demand was forecast to recover to 2019 levels by 2021, boosted by government-led spending on infrastructure projects.

However, Goldman Sachs warned jet fuel demand had been the “biggest loser” from the coronavirus crisis, with consumer confidence on flying set to stay low in the absence

Steve Jobs famously hated the “enterprise” business, the glad-handy market for selling computers to companies. Enterprise computing meant hawking wares to IT departments, who then bestowed beige boxes, and worse, on the captive multitudes who had no choice but to take what they were given. Jobs wanted to sell directly to his customers, known in commercial terms as consumers.

Thus a prejudice was born at Apple. In the glorious second reign of Steve Jobs, roughly 1997 until his death in 2011, companies that wanted to buy Apple devices mostly could go to the damn store and buy them like anyone else. This wasn’t strictly true. Apple didn’t ignore powerful customers. But the focus was on selling high-priced equipment—Macs, iPods, iPhones, and iPads—to consumers willing to pay a premium.

Tim Cook, an IBMer by upbringing, didn’t look down his nose at the enterprise and began emphasizing Apple’s interest during his tenure as CEO. A company called Jamf, in Minneapolis, sprung up in the early aughts to do something Apple wouldn’t: Make it easy for corporations to manage all the Apple devices their employees wanted them to buy.

That history lesson is relevant because Jamf, now owned by the voracious private-equity …

Good morning.

Does anyone out there really still think we are going to have a V-shaped recovery? If so, they should fold now. The surge in COVID cases in Arizona, Florida, Texas, California, South Carolina—which together account for 37% of GDP—have put the final nail in a coffin that was already pretty well sealed. Read more details in Fortune Analytics, here.

But with many restaurants suspending their reopening, that means more good news for food delivery services, like Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grubhub. Uber is clearly betting food delivery is habit forming, which is why it is reportedly in talks to buy Postmates for $2.6 billion (having failed in its effort to take over Grubhub.)

The crystal ball gets hazier when looking further out—or as Nobel physicist Niels Bohr put it: “Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.” But there is mounting evidence that office work will never go back to where it was before the pandemic. PwC has a new survey out this week with some eye-opening factoids:

–The vast majority of office workers—83%—want to work from home at least one day a week, after the pandemic has passed.

–A majority of employers—55%—expect they
