Covid is accelerating a number of massive global changes already underway beforehand, according to a recent keynote speech from Ian Bremmer, a political scientist and founder & CEO of political risk consultancy Eurasia Group.

Bremmer’s speech kicked off Eurasia Group’s annual G-Zero Summit, which examines the contours of a leaderless global order.

The Covid-19 pandemic has created the largest crisis since World War 2.

But the changes the health crisis is accelerating – growing inequality, eroding democratic legitimacy, outdated global institutions, and technological disruption – were already well underway, according to Bremmer.

Bremmer notes that the US is not becoming an authoritarian state, in contrast to the views of certain alarmist commentators.
