Now that the lockdown has eased up in most parts of the world, people are slowly going back to their pre-pandemic life. But the big question is, will the world still be the same after the pandemic? Here are reflections from some prominent thinkers.
Here’s what to expect for the post Covid-19 society:
- Daniel Susskind, an economist from Oxford University, said that the world would only look significantly different. The problems we will face in the future will simply be more extreme than what we had.
- James Manyika, chairman, and director of the McKinsey Global Institute, projections include the amplification of remote working and learning, telemedicine, and delivery service.
- Shan Burrow, the International Trade Union Confederation general secretary, reflected on a more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable post-COVID-19 society.
- Ian Bremmer, president and founder of Eurasia group, talked about pushing for the relocalization of business operations that favor national and regional supply chains.
As the world is about to start anew, people will bring with them the various lessons learned from this pandemic and a stronger resolve to make the world a better place.
