Transformative change can come out of the COVID-19 crisis, which has exposed everything that's wrong with decades of the world's governments betting on militarism, competition and wealth creation. A return to sanity and humane governance is still possible. John Feffer speaks tonight about his book, The Pandemic Pivot: A Report from the Institute for Policy Studies (Seven Stories Press), based on discussions between 68 global thinkers and activists during the summer of 2020, offers insight and an actionable framework for what Cindy Wiesner calls "a just transition to a regenerative, anti-racist, feminist economy." Both a sobering analysis of the present moment and a hopeful cry on behalf of the power inherent in a global, people-oriented response to the pandemic and the societal breakdown that led to it. John Feffer is director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies. His books include Aftershock: A Journey into Eastern Europe’s Broken Dreams.
