Leap Forward During the Crisis
"The pandemic's silver lining is the chance to experiment with technologies and co-operative approaches across borders that could lead to safer, more sustainable and more inclusive global futures," writes Sanjeev Khagram, Dean of Thunderbird School of Global Management (India).
According to the punctuated equilibrium theory established in 1972 by biologists Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge, the populations of living organisms usually evolve by leaps. As a rule, leaps tend to occur in short periods of time when species are in crisis. Today humanity is going through just such a period.
