-"The next pandemic"
-"[It] is going to last"

22nd: "We have to be able to move forward [] because the pandemic is going to last. It’s not going to be over quickly."

24th: "... we create a world that is also able to efficiently & effectively address the next pandemic ..."
Morgan: "To kickstart a solution, we must recognize that the primary focus on short-term growth & #GDP is misplaced... Not only is GDP an outdated way of #measuring economic performance... it is harmful. GDP fails to #measure... if we are living within our planetary boundaries."
Nature's contribution (theft) to the global economy is est. at 125 trillion dollars annually, while world's annual #GDP is est. at 85.9 trillion dollars (2018).

"Natural Capital" accounting will replace #GDP

The #NewDealForNature is the financialization of nature. #Nature4Sale
Morgan: "Policies until recently considered eccentric, such as basic income & wealth taxes, will have to be in the mix."

This is the pitch for #UniversalBasicIncome as sought by Silicon Valley billionaires (Musk, Branson, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, etc.) as means to stave off revolt.
We are witnessing the complete transformation of the global economic system. #4IR, monetization of nature, in lockstep w/ the deployment of central bank #digital currency. Morgan makes no mention of #4IR or #Blockchain - but not because she is unaware:…

Apr 22: "... response to #COVID19 must be global, #science-based, [] & #holistic..."

Apr 24: "It will be important to share the knowledge [] on how to deal w/ the #pandemic, & when a #vaccine comes out, share that as a global common good..."

Holistic = #HerdImmunity
Morgan: "It’s a moment to step back and really rethink. We set up a #new #world #order after World War II...

The #WorldEconomicForum has a big responsibility in that as well to be pushing the #reset button...…

"It tells us that when we listen to the science...

The key is to put the health of people and the planet first."

"Listen to science" - as the means to monetize nature.

Morgan: "We’ve also heard from the European Commission & a number of European countries that they’re going to stay the course on the European Green Deal, but they need to move forward with that."
