Our new CIO Special “New growth realities – Embracing kairos” looks at the impact of COVID-19 on the global economy, as attention shifts to economic recovery and what this will mean.
As we argue in the report, the crisis has demonstrated that new growth realities will be determined not only by economic and financial issues, but also by social and political needs. This is indeed an opportune moment for change – what the ancient Greeks called “kairos”.
We first examine the measurable impact of COVID-19 on global economies. We then discuss how the crisis has accelerated implementation of pre-existing trends in trade, digitalization and the future of work, and how it has underlined the increasing importance of ESG. Finally, we identify policy implications and the key economic and political dimensions that will define our future world.
