At a time when France is facing its worst recession since the Second World War, many voices are being raised to imagine a post-war world that is less unequal, more respectful of the planet and less dependent on China. This economic reconstruction, its financing and its implementation promise to be complicated. How does the Coronavirus pandemic mark an economic turning point? Can we finally count on European strategic autonomy? Are capitalism and globalisation as we know them living out their final days? These are just some of the questions and answers to be shared in the aftermath of 11 May 2020.
