For more than a year, COVID-19 has severely disrupted life around the world and profoundly impacted work, travel and social routines. While cases are on the rise again in some countries and the threat of new variants looms large, more and more vaccines are being administered each day and many are beginning to wonder what the post-COVID future might look like. In Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World, journalist and author Fareed Zakaria outlines the political, social, technological and economic consequences that he sees unfolding in the coming years. In this FCC Zoom event, Zakaria will discuss these 10 “lessons” as well as how the post-pandemic world will operate differently from the one that preceded it. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.
