Post-Covid Live 3: Everybody Counts
5 May 2020
Professor Henrietta L. Moore on how the Covid-19 lockdowns have revealed the pre-existing state of isolation and marginalisation of the world's most vulnerable.
Post-Covid Live addresses the nature of society, the kind of government and the form of economy we will need and want after the crisis. It is no longer possible to endorse the market as the primary mechanism for creating value and solving problems. What kind of values will guarantee quality of life for all and how will they be created and defended? How will the major challenges of our times be tackled - the ones we cannot quarantine ourselves from - climate change, social inequality, food waste, mass displacement?
Professor Henrietta L. Moore is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity
