The coronavirus pandemic has made the world an even more uncertain place. This creates fear and has led to apocalyptic visions of the world being totally different from what it is today.

However, most people just want life to get back to what it was like before the pandemic struck. 

No one knows whether the crisis will be short-lived, quickly followed by a rebound. Will the recovery look like the letter V or U?

We’ll certainly return to growth but the desire to return to normal will be mixed with the need for change. It would not be wise if we just forgot about the crisis, treating it as just another episode in history.
