Seven early lessons from the coronavirus | European Council on Foreign Relations

Seven early lessons from the coronavirus | European Council on Foreign Relations

my notes ( ? )

there at least seven things that make this crisis very different... force the return of big government... one more demonstration of the mystique of borders, and will help reassert the role of the nation state within the European Union...

The third lesson of the coronavirus relates to trust in expertise... Professionalism is back in fashion...

Unfortunately, the coronavirus could increase the appeal of the big data authoritarianism employed by the Chinese government...

The fifth lesson concerns crisis management... in 2008-2009... leaders and citizens responded with messages to “stay calm”... “Do not panic” is the wrong message for the Covid-19 crisis...

sixth lesson ... intergenerational dynamics... younger generations have been very critical of their elders... coronavirus reverses these dynamics...

governments will be forced to choose between containing the spread of the pandemic at the cost of destroying the economy or tolerating a higher human cost to save the economy.
