  • Many policymakers and academics believe that a crisis of this scale might allow for a deeper re-set of our economies.  

  • Climate change and ecological crises, rising inequality - both the stagnation in real wages and the racial economic opportunity gap - and high debt levels are some of the trends they want to reverse.  

  • The proposals divide into 3 camps: 

  1. Those that want to overhaul capitalism. 

  2. Those that do not want to change the system but urge more experimentation. 

  3. Those that believe we should use existing playbooks. 

  • In the near term many politicians fall into camp 3.  

  • However, in the long-term, changing demographic preferences could see voters demanding different policies.
