Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

Globalization and the Pandemic w/ John Feffer

March 20, 2020

On this bonus edition of Parallax Views, John Feffer of Foreign Policy in Focus joins J.G. and his Parallax Views: The Week That Was co-host Casey to discuss his latest articles "Will the Coronavirus Kill Globalization" and "What the Coronavirus Says About Us". The vast majority of the covnersation is devoted to what COVID-19 means for the age of globalization. As we note in the beginning of the conversation, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan hopes that the virus will spell the end of globalization and a resurgence in nationalist sentiments. Feffer, although critical of aspects of the economic aspects of globalization in its current formation, is hoping for something else entirely and in fact sees COVID-19 as opening the doors for an opportunity. Namely, a new wave of globalization that would be more progressive in nature. In addition to discussing the relationship between globalization and COVID-19 as well as what it means for the future of globalization as a project, John also summarizes his latest article "What the Coronavirus Says About Us" detailing the responses of China, South Korea, Italy, and the United States to the pandemic crisis.
