In the course of the interview, Dr Moyo discussed the worrying state of the world economy before the impact of the coronavirus, and then the profound and long-term consequences of this latest crisis. She explained her concerns about the lack of global co-operation and the push back to globalisation. Turning to her business background, companies have to consider how to evolve their supply chains in coming years while looking for opportunities for innovation not only to defend their core business but also exploring investments in adjacent areas. Lastly, she outlined how her recent book ‘The Edge of Chaos’ and its suggestions about the need for a fundamental retooling of democratic capitalism has to be updated in the light of the virus.

She previously worked at the World Bank and Goldman Sachs before becoming an author and public speaker.
