8 April webinar: Our response to the coming global recession

An incredible 670 people joined our first webinar on building an
internationalist response to COVID-19. Hundreds more listened to the
recording. The response shows that many worldwide are looking for global
perspectives on this crisis that grapple with the pandemic’s structural
causes and impacts.

TNI is glad therefore to announce we will be running a weekly Wednesday
webinar series throughout April that will explore many of these themes

Based on feedback from our first webinar, *our second webinar at 4pm CET,
Wednesday 8 April*, will focus on the economic fallout from COVID-19. Many
are predicting a global recession that could have bigger social impacts
than the virus itself. What can we expect? How should we prepare? What can
social movements learn from our failures to advance alternative progressive
policies in the wake of the 2008 economic crisis?

To address these questions, we are excited to be joined by a stellar cast
of panellists including:

   - *Professor Jayati Ghosh*, award-winning economist Jawaharlal Nehru
   University, India. Author of *The Market That Failed ; A Decade of
   Neoliberal Economic Reforms in India* (2009)
   - *Quinn Slobodian*, associate professor of history, Wellesley College.
   Author of *Globalists: The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism*
   - *Walden Bello*, author of *Paper Dragons: China and the Next Crash*
   (2019) and *Capitalism’s Last Stand?: Deglobalization in the Age of
   Austerity* (2013)
