Sheila Bair is the former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Whilst the UK are set to overtake Italy with nearly 15,000 coronavirus deaths, Germany have recorded under 5,000 deaths. Jens Spahn, the German Health Minister, joins Christiane Amanpour to reflect on how his country's policy of intensive testing as well as their high ICU bed capacity have helped to reduce mortality rates. Amid this pandemic we have seen fascinating effects on our climate; from a huge reduction in pollution levels to changing behaviors in animals. Climate Scientist Katharine Hayhoe talks about the climate crisis that will still be present and need addressing when the lockdown lifts. Her husband Andrew Farley happens to be an evangelical pastor and meditates on the news that some religious communities are failing to adhere to social distancing measures. He urges us to use 'common Godly sense' to protect ourselves and others. The crisis is testing economies around the world, with 22 million Americans filing for unemployment. Sheila Bair is the former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation which works to make banking safer for communities. She speaks to our contributor Sheelah Kolhatkar about how to ensure we don't repeat the mistakes of the 2008 bailout. Archie Brown, author of "The Human Factor," wants to dispel the theory that the Cold War was won through military might and economic superiority. He argues that it was down to the stellar leadership of UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and U.S. President Ronald Reagan that seized opportunity and paved the wave to success. He unpacks the lessons learnt that can be applied to our war against Covid-19 today. via Knit
