Globalisation has so far been driven mainly by financial integration, trade agreements and paving the ground for multinational businesses. There is an urgent need for a more sophisticated view on globalisation, where priority need to be shifted towards education, health and public safety.
Resent pandemic has taught us that only close collaboration between health authorities and research institutions globally can protect the civilians. And so far, there are strong indications that the best performance in fighting a pandemic comes in societies with
- high quality public education
- high trust in political system
- high quality public health system
Hopefully, voters around the world will use their vote to support politicians who have proven their willingness to fight for their people rather than protecting their own interests.
