Dreaming about social change in the time of COVID

Back in March 2020, like many friends and colleagues, I was hoping (or rather dreaming) that the Covid-19 might help to generate a new kind of economy, a new kind of society… The dream dissolved before I knew it. I find a testimony of the astonishment and hope caused by the pandemic in this interview with CBS News Seattle recorded on March 30.

The interview starts at 40:10
