    If you think this is the beginning of the end...

    You have either been in Hong Kong for too long with your head in the sand OR you don't know the Hong Kong of the past.

    It has been over for Hong Kong for almost a decade now.

    - Remove reasons to go as (Chinese) tourist (cheap goods and real goods)

    If this drags on, the ones staying are poor locals who do not have a chance to make a living anywhere else. Then they can either put it into a Xinjiang style lockdown or just annex it to Shenzhen without anyone caring anymore.
    Not less than 10 years to accomplish this

    In 1966, the Soviet Union accounted for 20% of the world's GDP. Dropped to below 8% in 1991.
