S1Ep124: Why the Pandemic Has Exposed the Weakness of the West & How to Fix it
The global economy was completely changed in 2020 thanks to Covid-19. This is going to have long lasting effects, both in terms of what sectors are going to thrive and what countries are going to thrive.
Adrian Wooldridge, editor, columnist, and political correspondent for The Economist, joins Adam and Naresh to discuss how the economy has been disrupted, what it’s shown us about our society, how we can create an environment where our government can actually function despite our polarization, and more.
Adrian is author of the New York Times’ bestselling books The Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State, Capitalism in America: An Economic History of the United States (with Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan), and the new book The Wake-Up Call: Why the Pandemic Has Exposed the Weakness of the West, and How to Fix it.
