LES RENDEZ-VOUS DU CLUB
How Covid-19 is altering economic beliefs and perception - and why it matters
Mercredi 21 octobre 2020, 14h00-15h15, Webconférence
The impact of Covid-19 goes way beyond health and economics. By shedding crude light on the vulnerabilities of our societies, on the dependence of our economies and on the frailty of ecological equilibria, it is altering behaviors and perceptions. Understanding the nature of these changes is key if on-going changes are to be properly understood:
To what extent are temporary forced savings going to turn into permanent precautionary savings?
Will private sector decision makers significantly shift their risk evaluations?
Will citizen and government push to revamp significantly international relationship, and to reshape globalization?
Conducted in parallel in a number of countries, the Pew Research Center surveys provide unique insights to address these questions, focusing on perceptions of the state of the economy, of international relations and of globalization. Based on a variety of surveys conducted during the last months, Dr. Richard Wike will share the lessons for the future of the world economy.
The presentation will be held in English and the Questions/Answers session in French and English.
