COVID-19-A Wake Up Call for the West

COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for western democracies, argues Bloomberg's John Micklethwait and The Economist's Adrian Wooldridge. Unbalanced economies, social uprisings, and politicized media narratives have aligned with the pandemic to expose deep problems within the US and other similar governments. At a time when strong leadership is desperately needed, and when countries like Russia and China are growing in power, can our political structures evolve to meet the demands of today? Micklethwait and Wooldridge join Anne Dias to explain how the West can rise again.
