COVID-19 has put enormous pressure on civil liberties, the world of work and our bottom line. It has highlighted fault lines in neoliberal economic orders, from problems of economic inequality, stagnant wages and failing worker protections to the major unaddressed environmental challenge of climate change.

Rosalind Dixon is joined by Ross Gittins, Richard Holden and Judith Sloan.
