“I’ve been quite reassured during this crisis how quickly governments and central banks have responded, how quickly businesses and indeed workers have adapted their way of working.”

“So, I’ve got some hope that the searing experience of the COVID crisis may have flexed that muscle, the ability to change at greater pace than in the past.”
