Title:
Inflicted Costs of Covid-19 and Some Emerging Global Issues

Outline:
The new coronavirus spread from China since early 2020 has become a global pandemic, infecting and killing millions of people worldwide. Besides the human cost, the economic and social costs of COVID-19 are turning out to be enormous to most of the societies on the planet. The lingering of the disease has raised concerns related to various economic and strategic issues that are likely to affect the global order per se profoundly. These include the possibility of a worldwide recession turning into a great depression, effort to reduce the overdependence on China for the functioning of a global supply chain, attempt to revert globalization and reshaping of industrialization policy, the possibility of a resurgent China’s state-centric national and international governance model vs. the West led rule-based global order where democracy and capitalism form the core and so on. By following a qualitative approach that collects and analyzes data by the grounded theory research strategy, this paper aims to develop and explain those emerging global issues, both economic and strategic, of short to long-term durability.

Keywords: Covid-19, Costs, China, Global Supply Chain, Industrialization Policy, Global Governance Model.
