COVID-19 is accelerating the backlash in many countries against hyper-globalization in the face of rising inequality. But policy makers can use this as an opportunity to create a more inclusive model of economic globalization that can facilitate world trade and investment while still maintaining a more equitable social bargain. In this presentation Professor Rodrik will explore the reform of globalization and economic strategies for creating inclusive societies.
