This week, we look at leadership during a global crisis. What does it take to avoid the worst of the pandemic and allow a country to return to some sense of normalcy? Producer Teresa Cotsirilos and Radio New Zealand’s Indira Stewart explain how Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern managed to nearly eradicate the virus from New Zealand. Next, Teresa talks with Nicholas Kristof about how working class Americans in his hometown of Yamhill, Oregon are faring during the pandemic. And last, Rebecca Henderson talks with Markos Kounalakis about reimagining capitalism in a world on fire.
