Online public meeting – COVID-19: a Geo-Political Watershed
The spread of COVID-19 has triggered a global social crisis that will have profound and lasting effects. When the pandemic initially erupted, the global capitalist economy was already turning downward after a remarkably lack-luster recovery from the Great Recession of 2008-9 and decades of “financialization” and austerity. But the unprecedented global economic shutdown that has taken place in response to the spread of COVID-19 has produced a far steeper drop than the Wall Street crash of October 1929 at the onset of the Great Depression.
These developments have profound implications for global politics, heralding the decline of US imperialism and the rise of the deformed workers’ state, China.
