China-bashing and Post-COVID-19 Narrative

The disruption of supply chains caused by COVID-19 has led to predictions that international firms will relocate production away from China, benefiting other emerging economies, including India. However, China’s integration with the global economy in terms of international finance, investment, construction and as a low-cost location for global production is now so deep that such changes will neither be quick nor painless.

Both the countries are engaged in a propaganda war against each other, which the United States seems to be winning. The US suffers from Sinophobia and has cultivated hate against Asian Americans, which is reminiscent of the anti-China sentiment that was prevalent in American cities in the late 19th century. The pandemic experience is likely to make the US more insular and reluctant to embrace foreigners

COVID-19 Should Make Us Re-imagine the World Order

As a bio-security crisis brings the world to a brink, the dominant neo-liberal vision of world order must be displaced by a humane globalism and institutions that actually supply public goods.

Triggering a Global Financial Crisis

Whether a black swan or a scapegoat, Covid-19 is an extraordinary event. Declared by the WHO as a pandemic, Covid-19 has given birth to the concept of the economic “sudden stop.” We need extraordinary measures to contain it.
