The Covid-19 pandemic affects all areas of our life and our world order. The crisis has hit hard and reveals the fragility of our globalized economy. At the same time, some forgotten or neglected truths have resurfaced which open up the debate about the future of our world. Are we at the cusp of a new world order? Kenneth M. Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of global financial advisory and asset management firm Lazard, shared his Covid-19 learnings for the post-pandemic economic landscape with Swaha Pattanaik, Global Economics Editor at Reuters Breakingviews. The conversation described the potential impact industries like tech, media, healthcare, real estate and retail are facing as well as the possible shifting balance between a market driven economy and a more regulated approach, and between the nation state and global interdependence.
