For our sixth edition of St Antony’s Looks at the World, we present two of our most distinguished alumni: Professor the Rt Hon Sir John Redwood (History, 1971) interviewed by Dr Zachary Karabell (Middle Eastern Studies, 1988).
Introduced by the Warden Professor Roger Goodman. Sir John has had a long and distinguished career as a Conservative politician in the UK, in addition to which he is also a businessman and academic. Dr Karabell is also a polymath, combining a highly successful career in finance in the US with his work as an author, columnist and commentator. Tune in as they discuss whether or not Covid-19 is a turning point in history, covering along the way the digital revolution, the relationship between the citizen and the state, and the role of central banks. Is this the end of globalisation? Listen and find out! For more about their respective background and careers, please follow the links below.
