PODCAST: Buchanan + Manning on how Covid-19 has triggered economic change


A View from Afar – In this podcast, political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning discuss the Covid-19 driven transition from Neo-liberal to Neo-Keynesian Economics.

In particular, Buchanan and Manning examine whether we are witnessing a fundamental change to global economics and consider:

  • How since the Covid-19 pandemic arrived even neo-liberal state economies have embraced an expansionist government strategy and significant degrees of stimulus.
  • It would appear that the excesses of small government, market driven economies have, at this time, run their course.
  • But what will replace the earlier systems?
  • From a political economy point of view, what can we expect to take shape as the Pandemic grinds on, even while we all have had a glimpse of what a post-Pandemic new normal may mean?

  1. All sorts of change are needed. This image of movers and shakers at the climate meeting huddling close for talks and thoughts is making me tearful.
    It’s so great that some people put their minds and hearts to the problem, let the obscenely rich with our fake money system and with the power to put up road blocks on Earth, build themselves the final mach of spaceship and go off finally to spoil other worlds.

    John Wyndham wrote books exploring outcomes from various factors changing society. This:
    By choosing instead to write about situations that were rational extensions of the present day, Wyndham pioneered a form of sci-fi that he labelled “logical fantasy” but which is widely known now as “speculative fiction”.22/07/2008
