The Covid-19 pandemic is not yet over but has already revealed much about the fragility of the world in which we live. The institutional strengths and weaknesses of individual nations —and of the global political economy —have been revealed. Moreover, the economic ramifications of the pandemic will reverberate for years, if not decades.
Geopolitical fault lines have also been put into stark relief. Political responses to the pandemic have exacerbated the already fractious relationship between the United States and China, for example. Indeed, covid's fevers may accelerate the emergence of a new cold war.
How will these and related geopolitical factors shape the global political economy? What are the implications for the Asian business environment?
We are delighted to invite you to join a conversation on these and related issues with world renowned historian, Niall Ferguson. Author of numerous bestselling books including The Ascent of Money, Civilization and most recently The Square and The Tower, Professor Ferguson is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and holds academic posts at Stanford, Harvard and Tsinghua University, Beijing.
