Crown will not kill globalization. But it will look different after the pandemic

Even in the stormy early years of globalization in 1990, scientists new trends were concerned for its viral qualities: his speed, his limits capacity and rules to penetrate, to transform its capacity and also to colonize the countries to which it arrived. I was one of those analysts. Although most of us thought, globalization is a very positive force would probably we do not go that globalization could be gradually dangerous, contagious and difficult to control. Then came an avalanche of viruses that global travelers seemed to be: HIV, swine flu, mad cow disease, SARS, different brands of influence, and now COVID-19 This final plague is globalized in our history . Its speed of movement is only by the capacity of their global reach. It triggered an attack against globalization, with critics of the current pandemic as an example for use as it can go wrong. a suddenly everything many seem willing in the media, science and politics to take the pause button on globalization. “Globalization has brought to the intensive care unit,” a pillar of foreign policy has supported the March 9, during the May 14 issue Economist asked if he had killed 19-COVID globalization. Some on the left have celebrated the virus as a potential cure for the planet damaged a way to curb the atrocities of globalized capitalism and restore the virtues of the communities and countries of companies and markets. Meanwhile, right populist leaders like US President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro have widespread narrow national borders thrust used by keeping foreigners, tourists and migrants to use existing among their followers xenophobic sentiments and racism. It is the recent push to transform just the thin edge of the wedge in a growing effort back the clock on globalization? Perhaps, but such an effort is wishful thinking. Globalization is here to stay. It is a horse has left the barn 30 years ago, when it was the Soviet Union, when the free market for capital and labor to the standard was, and when the financial markets were more important than the trading of goods and services. These trends can not be reversed, no longer the industrial revolution and the birth of the computer. So far, it is clear that no significant global player change his game plan. China continues its huge investment in the belts and roads initiative in silence, while the US and Russia have intensified over India in a tug of war taking place over the course of the most important weapons, such as the crisis was COVID-19 global, since neither power wants its global share shrinks the arms trade. French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump just arrived at a broad consensus E.U. taxing to slow efforts to large US technology companies (Google, Facebook, Microsoft) in order to avoid a tariff war between the two countries. Germany is to avoid sharp snake with either the United States or China in recent hostilities between the two. Although many nation-states are busy with their tightening limits to maximize their medical resources and the health of its citizens, in particular the priority is not to make a country serious action to cancel or reverse their global alliances , interests and strategies. It is updated here with our daily newsletter crown. However, to have COVID-19 seems breathed the nation state a new life to be seen after many decades as a junior partner to the markets, companies, multilateral agencies and media organizations. Many leaders have been obtained expanded powers. Populations lead they have, as a rule, increased their faith in them. This has led some to fear that the authoritarian leader is still in power today in many countries repellent to liberal political values. But the revival of power is limited to the nation state. No state can exploit the crisis crown the scope of the sweep global financial system. Economic indicators that underpin many guides popularity based on internationalized labor, raw materials and supply chains that can not be taken into networks and national boundaries without significantly reducing the quality of life back. Meanwhile, citizens have recently become aware to secure their nation-states of their power and the agency for the survival and prosperity, followed by health conditions and the economic and social sacrifices. Neither politicians nor citizens this rediscovery should forget the social power of ordinary people. The recent crisis has also shown the technology can still be successful without globalization as neither science. This was to help the United States through the efforts of President Trump example, to buy the development of a society of a German crown vaccine. The attempt, which failed, was an indicator of the tensions that arise when science that so often relies on international cooperation, collides with national ambitions and fears. The best virologists, epidemiologists and public health experts are constantly in touch with each other across national borders. Pharmaceutical companies are based on studies in the world and scientific conducted by a global pool of talent drawn. Emergency equipment is sent each other from different countries. While there is still a competitive race is to find the best testing equipment, vaccines and treatments that keep the globalized model of business cooperation in major pharmaceutical companies secure world. is won and to treat the pandemic as a zero-sum game of nation-states, or lost, they are sure to succeed. But the irreversibility of globalization is not meant as some predicted in 1990, the end of xenophobia or reduced exclusion of disadvantaged groups. Many right-wing populists, like Trump, are responding to the crisis by cutting a racist, anti-immigrant and anti-liberal bias. President Bolsonaro in Brazil has shown its disregard for the advice of scientists opened. And the party of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has used the crisis to stir up Islamophobia and leave work and poor traveling down that came Indian cities from their villages. The negative aspects of globalization could intensify faster than its strengths. As COVID-19 is a virus with global properties that globalization is viral. But to develop all viruses, and globalization is no different. The nation states of the world have had a very uneven success in its reply to COVID-19, and that is primarily because the architecture of the national states with no national borders system is not suitable for the age of problems. As globalization will remain here, it is the system of nation-states, which might be forced to change well, so that some may welcome, and others may resist.
