For business, the economic, technological and
reputational pressures of the present moment risk
a disorderly shakeout, threatening to create a large
cohort of workers and companies that are left behind
in the markets of the future. Governments, too,
must balance between managing the pandemic and
economic contraction, while at the same time creating
new opportunities that are fundamental to social
cohesion and the viability of their populations. Most
critically, if environmental considerations—the top
long-term risks once again—are not confronted in the
short term, environmental degradation will intersect
with societal fragmentation to bring about dramatic
consequences. If managed poorly, these disruptions
will hamper the ability of policy-makers and other
leaders to act on different areas of risk.
