Resilience In the Face of the Coronavirus Pandemic

Friday, May 1, 2020

In just a few months, the tightly connected systems of a globalized world have transformed the novel coronavirus from a handful of cases in China to a global pandemic. But we have yet to see an international response that matches the scale of the threat. The contrast with the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent economic crash is stark. Then, governments vastly upgraded the G-20 from a somewhat obscure forum of finance ministers to a new global decision-making bloc in order to steer the world to safety. Don’t hold your breath for a similar response to COVID-19. The outbreak has hit at a time when the international order’s immune system is badly compromised.

Economic policymakers around the world today find themselves facing an incredible challenge.

As the novel coronavirus spreads, governments are swiftly implementing drastic measures to limit the scope of the pandemic, including banning public gatherings, closing national borders and shuttering all non-essential businesses.

These emergency measures are unquestionably justified, as millions of lives hang in the balance. But they have hit economies with a shocking intensity that seems to get worse by the day. Entire economic sectors have been shuttered and seemingly carved out of society in less than a week. The wrenching effects of these unprecedented events hit hardest at the individual level in the form of wage cuts and job losses.

Public confidence is suffering, with trust and goodwill beginning to vanish before our eyes.

At a time when solidarity is more necessary than ever, forces that polarize and divide societies are gaining force. Even medical experts in the public eye are coming under fire, with Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leading infectious disease authorities helping to guide the American response,forced to beef up his security detail due to death threats from COVID-19 deniers.

At the same time, it is not too late for national and international leaders, as well as individuals at the grassroots level, to formulate a dynamic, innovative and diverse response to the pandemic that has the power to surprise and inspire.Learn more when you download Resilience In the Face of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Why WPR can help you better understand the pandemic:

World Politics Review publishes in-depth news and expert analysis on global affairs to help our readers identify and make sense of the events and trends shaping our world. Guided by a commitment to integrity, quality and intellectual honesty, we serve as a forum for creative ideas about how to tackle the world’s most important challenges.

WPR seeks to strike a balance between the two dominant schools of international relations, realism and liberal internationalism, combining an effort to see the world as it is with a preference for diplomacy and multilateralism in support of a rules- and norms-based global order.

We pay particular attention to important but undercovered stories as well as underexamined aspects of the news making headlines, and cover often-ignored corners of the world independently of whether and how they affect U.S. interests.

WPR is funded exclusively by its readers—foreign policy professionals, academics and general readers with an interest in international affairs—through individual and institutional subscription fees. We sell no advertising, and receive no funding from any outside investors, interest groups or foundations. We are likewise unbeholden to any partisan affiliation or party allegiance.

WPR offers an incisive mix of substantive policy analysis and politically relevant commentary. It is one of the few outlets which is able to provide both types of writing in an incisive and engaging manner.”
