Ik citeer uit Klaus Schwab zijn boek, COVID-19: The Great Reset.
"Second, COVID-19 is likely to sound the death knell of neoliberalism,
a corpus of ideas and policies that can loosely be defined as favouring competition over solidarity,
creative destruction over government intervention and economic growth over social welfare. For a number
of years, the neoliberal doctrine has been on the wane, with many commentators, business leaders and
policy-makers increasingly denouncing its “market fetishism”, but COVID-19 brought the coup de grâce. It
is no coincidence that the two countries that over the past few years embraced the policies of
neoliberalism with most fervour – the US and the UK – are among those that suffered the most casualties
during the pandemic. These two concomitant forces – massive redistribution on the one hand and
abandoning neoliberal policies on the other – will exert a defining impact on our societies’ organization,
ranging from how inequalities could spur social unrest to the increasing role of governments and the
redefinition of social contracts."
