The World After the Pandemic

The world’s ongoing recovery from the coronavirus has been marked by inequality. Rich countries have been able to vaccinate large parts of their populations while countries in the developing world have mostly been left behind. This profound divide will cause deep transformations in the way trade, travel, and geopolitics function for years to come. What do these changes mean for corporations and governments? How will they impact the world order and relations between countries? Foreign Policy Editor in Chief Ravi Agrawal takes listeners on a tour of the globe, using data and statistics to shed light on the world in 2022 and beyond – and explain what it means for your work and life.
