Coronavirus Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during the post-epidemic period, with some comparing the economic boom to the ‘roaring’ 20s, but one top political analyst says the bounce back will not benefit everyone.
Tina Fordham, head of global political strategy at consulting firm Avonhurst, told CNBC on Friday that she did not like the “very popular features” of the “epidemic” campaign, which economists expect as “extremely crowded in the ’20s.”
But Fordham, who used to be the chief political analyst at City, suggested that F.C. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby can benefit others in the same way – others may experience something similar to John Steinbeck’s depression. Era novel “Grapes of Wrath.”
“Many people would have been hurt by the epidemic and would not have recovered as quickly as possible on the market,” Fordham told Street Cygnus Europe.
The 1920s came to be known as the “Roar” 20s, after the First World War and the 1918 Influenza (Epidemic) epidemic all over the country.
Fordham also discussed Onhurst’s “VX Populi” research, which looks at the major risks facing the world’s 27 largest economies and their resilience after the coronavirus epidemic.
“One of the biggest understandings of VX Populi’s vision is that we (the epidemic) should be ready for an all-country-socio-economic hangover to affect elections in the next 10 years,” Fordham said.
With the upcoming local elections in Britain and France “it will take a toll on all governments.” He said the matter would be put to trial soon.
Meanwhile, Germany’s federal election in September will be “big” to start the “European Super Cycle”. Fordham said Germany’s Green Party – which has outperformed Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party in the recent election – would have a “significant change” for the country if it took over the chancellorship.
In 2022, investors will be watching France’s national election for signs of a political hangover from all over the country (or across the continent), Fordham said. Noting that French President Emmanuel Macron and the country were not thinking more broadly about the VX Papuli framework, she said, “there is a real possibility of a far-right place in the background of this crisis.”
