While much is being said about the demise of globalization, in our estimation, its death notice is premature; it significantly underestimates the durability of the international institutions constructed post-WWII and how the digital economy will effectively blunt this latest round of temporary global protectionism.

For now, we expect a temporary severing of the global economy into distinct blocs organized around regional trade arrangements and agreements—what one might refer to as globalization-lite—until new social arrangements can be made in the major economies to support the greater international integration of financial and economic life.

In this issue of The Real Economy, we explore the evolution of the digital economy and its impact on policies, populism, globalization and growth. In addition, we estimate recession probability, examine the latest numbers on gross domestic product, provide insights on the impact of the coronavirus on the economy and industries, and look at digital transformation trends in health care. Download the full issue.
