About this event

SG Bologna incontra in esclusiva per l'Italia Thierry Malleret, co-autore dell'appassionante e controverso libro "COVID-19: The Great Reset", che teorizza la grande trasformazione che sarà necessaria a causa della pandemia da Coronavirus e delle sue conseguenze socio-economiche. Il libro, non ancora tradotto in Italiano, descrive diverse “opportunità” del futuro prossimo. Tra queste la trasformazione digitale e la possibilità di muoversi verso una società più verde. La discussione intorno al concetto di “Grande Reset” lanciato da Schwab e Malleret, sarà al centro del prossimo World Economic Forum 2021, a cui come sempre parteciperanno le élite mondiali della finanza, della politica e della scienza.

L'evento sarà in lingua inglese

COVID-19 has disrupted global health systems, economies and societies. A new book by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Thierry Malleret, Founder of the Monthly Barometer, considers the far-reaching implications of the pandemic and argues the need for a “Great Reset” in every domain from policy-making to business.

“We are at a crossroads,” the authors of COVID-19: The Great Reset argue. “One path will take us to a better world: more inclusive, more equitable and more respectful of Mother Nature. The other will take us to a world that resembles the one we just left behind – but worse and constantly dogged by nasty surprises. We must therefore get it right.”

The book – part economic analysis, part public policy-oriented – is the first of its kind globally, appearing at the peak of the COVID crisis worldwide and at a time when a medical solution is still at least six months away. It includes theory and practical examples but is chiefly explanatory, containing many conjectures and ideas about what the post-pandemic world might and, perhaps, should look like.

The book offers a panoramic overview of the current situation. The first chapter assesses the impact of the pandemic on five macro categories: economic, societal, geopolitical, environmental and technological. The second chapter considers the effects in micro terms, on specific industries and companies. The third hypothesizes about the nature of the possible consequences at the individual level.
