Today we take a special look at the Covid-19 pandemic. While we are rightfully tracking case numbers globally, practicing social distancing, and concerned about the lockdowns that are going on in our respective parts of the world, there has been relatively little produced about the medium and longer term geopolitical and economic impacts of the outbreak. What should we expect over the coming weeks and months?
Today, start to ask some of those longer term questions with Daniel Wagner, who has been a guest on the podcast several times. This episode was recorded on Sunday March 22, 2020 and we tackle, among other things:
- The origins of the pandemic;
- China’s initial failure to control it and later success in doing so;
- Failures in Western countries to manage the outbreak;
- What to expect over the coming months.
Daniel on why the USA should relax sanctions on Iran during Covid-19
