The World Economy Transformed

A webinar Series

April-July, 2020




This series of webinars was designed with the idea that as countries around the world are dealing with crises efforts realted to the Covid 19 pandemic, a parallel intellectual initiative should be under way for the transition to a post-virus order.

The webinars set to examine trends in health, monetary and fiscal policy. They invovled a wide range of policy makers, academics and private sector representatives from around the world . We focused particularly on policies likley to have major implications and to produce innovations in how the global financial system operates in the aftermath of a health crisis that has changed the course of world history.

We hope that this digital series will help to strengthen our collective commitment in making the world a better place, though we will miss the conviviality and intimate atmosphere that our events have provided over the last two decades.
