The ongoing pandemic has deeply shakened the world’s institutions and the socio-economic fabric of many societies. Entire sectors employing hundreds of millions of people, such as tourism and cultural industries, have been basically shut down, or been severely distorted. Disadvantaged groups, the less educated, women and children, are those paying the price, although most attention is directed elsewhere. While policymakers keep channelling support to big business and financial markets the traditional way, income differences - already out of all reasonable proportions - are exploding. The fundamental challenges threatening the sustainability of human societies and natural life, are taking second seat. For how long can this continue? What will be next?
