In October 2020, the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies published the report “Going Viral – Scenarios for a Post-pandemic World”.

The report, prepared in collaboration with Pictet Asset Management, presents scenarios for the post-pandemic world, with a focus on how Covid-19 will impact the investment outlook in the next five to 10 years.

For the Institute, there are four possible scenarios: ‘Act local, think global’, ‘All together now’, ‘Going it alone’ and ‘Not my problem’. And each of them has a unique position in relation to ‘Citizen-consumer values’ and ‘Geopolitics and global power shifts’.

For each scenario, the report addresses perspectives in relation to citizen-consumer values, governance, economic growth and innovation, technology, urbanisation and cities, health and infrastructure, also presenting the winners and losers of each scenario.
