About the Event

After the pandemic, could the twenties be roaring once again?

In this Diplosphere discussion, we will explore the parallels between the famed roaring 20s, occurring after WWI and the Spanish flu, and the new 20s decade?

What are the new trends and challenges, and what lessons can be learnt not to end up with another Great Depression, failure of the rules-based system and a global war? And in an age of technical wonder, why do so many feel so disillusioned?
