What We Learned From COVID | Anne-Marie Slaughter & Stephen Walt | GZERO World

What lessons did we learn from the pandemic that still apply now with the war in Ukraine?

Unlike the war or the 2008 global financial crisis, COVID was not an immediate threat we needed to respond to in real time, says former US State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter, so different countries were affected in different ways, and responded their own way at different times.

"If you're going to use a crisis effectively for change, you have to be able to have the right time horizon, the right group of countries, and a very specific set of goals," she tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Latin America Faces Perfect Storm for Nasty Politics | Moisés Naim | Global Stage | GZERO Media

How much power does the World Economic Forum in Davos still have? For Moisés Naim. distinguished fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, not much, and this year's leitmotif is confusion. Why? "We are dealing with uncertain situations that have no precedent," he tells Ian Bremmer in a Global Stage interview. Naim believes that in the near future the locus of power will shift from geography to artificial intelligence, which will have immense consequences for how leaders wield power — and that's a double-edged sword. And what about Latin America's future? He sees a"very dangerous convergence of inflation and disappointment with democracy that could result in "a perfect storm to create nasty politics" in the region.

Ukraine Made German Foreign Policy Go “Out the Window” | Global Stage | GZERO Media

For Wolfgang Ischinger, former chair of the Munich Security Conference, the state of transatlantic relations is in good shape right now, although whether we'll have the stamina to stay on course is uncertain. In a Global Stage interview with Ian Bremmer, he seems more worried about American war fatigue than the Europeans — although the EU has Viktor Orbán and it's hard for Germany to cut off Russian gas. One lesson Ischinger has learned from the current crisis is that Europe must have America's back on China, especially with Taiwan. And he calls German Chancellor Olaf Scholz's recent foreign policy U-turns as "going out the window."

The Power of Crisis | GZERO World

Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine hasn’t gone to plan, BUT he has achieved something nearly unimaginable: get US Republicans and Democrats to agree on something.

And it's not just a US problem. Trust in government has plummeted all around the world, to the point that this has becoming the defining story of our era. That's why international institutions like the UN or the IMF are no longer fit for purpose.

To fix this broken system, we need a crisis. For instance, a pandemic, climate change, or Big Tech.

Gillian Tett: Ukraine Know How To Get What It Wants From the West | Global Stage | GZERO Media
The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, is not known for big outbursts of human emotion. But this year, the Ukrainian delegation got a standing ovation from the usual crowd of global business leaders. Gillian Tett, US editor-at-large and chair of the Financial Times board, met with the Ukrainians and shares her perspective with Ian Bremmer in a Global Stage interview. Beyond all the emotion, Tett also believes that when the fighting is over, there will eventually be business opportunities for many people present. She also commented on chatter about using sanctions against Russia to confiscate assets and use them to compensate Ukraine, which she sees as a slippery slope because there are many doubts about due process.

NATO’s Tough Choices Ahead | GZERO World

Is NATO stronger today than it was before Russia invaded Ukraine?

Certainly, former US State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, but now the tougher issue is how the alliance can say yes to Finland and Sweden but no to Ukraine, despite spending billions of dollars to help the Ukrainians fight the Russians.

"If you say yes to Ukraine, well, surely you have to say yes to Moldova and to Belarus and to Georgia, and then where are you?"
