Once the Covid-19 Dust Settles: Implications for Socioeconomics and Great-Power Politics
Talha Khan, Vice President, Capital Strategy Research, Capital Group
                
From hastening digital disruption, to exposing the fragility of public health and education systems, to increasing income inequality, Covid-19 has accelerated existing fault-lines both within societies and increased geostrategic competition between countries. On the national level, this pandemic has led to a rethink on the role played by the State in providing the necessary economic and health backstop; it has also highlighted the importance of securing essential supply chains. This dynamic feeds into geopolitics, where the pandemic has accelerated economic nationalism (thus far, not ethnic nationalism) and intensified key inter-state rivalries. All of these factors combined will have enduring effects in the decades to come.
