Abstract. This piece reviews the emergence of the novel coronavirus, traces its expansion throughout the world, reviews the economic impact and measures taken esp. by the US and the European Union countries. It looks specifically at how it has been handled by China, in the context of its “police-state” tools of monitoring citizens. It draws on the scientific literature, but also on the political economy literature on the rivalry between the US and China, which it puts in the context of the so-called Thucydides Trap, a concept due to Graham Allison: rivalry between two world powers, a standing one and an ascending one has 12 out of 16 times led to major wars. The piece elaborates on the importance of strengthening global disease-fighting efforts via the W.H.O. and proposes that the world learn from how brilliant ideas of economists like Thomas C. Schelling have allowed the major powers to avoid nuclear war for 75 years. It ends by arguing that whereas the spread of the novel coronavirus has been enabled by and interacted with globalization, going forward global value chains must recognize the role of Values so as many many lives be saved.
