Today we take a special look at the Covid-19 pandemic. While we are rightfully tracking case numbers globally, practising social distancing and concerned about the lockdowns that are going on in our respective parts of the world, there has been relatively little produced about the medium and longer-term geopolitical and economic impacts of the outbreak. What should we expect over the coming weeks and months?

Today, start to ask some of those longer term questions with Daniel Wagner, who has been a guest on the podcast several times. This episode was recorded on Sunday March 22, 2020 and we tackle, among other things:

  • The origins of the pandemic;
  • China’s initial failure to control it and later success in doing so;
  • Failures in Western countries to manage the outbreak;
  • What to expect over the coming months.

Show notes:

I am delighted and honoured to bring you an amazing conversation that comes at an excellent time. While the world is currently gripped by the Coronavirus, there was a time when the world’s foremost news story was something completely different – and more positive. In 2018, the world’s foremost international news story was something that made us all feel good – the rescue of the Wild Boars football team from the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand.

As you will hear however, that happy ending was by no means guaranteed. My guest today is Dr. Richard Harris – or Harry as he is known. Dr. Harris is an anaesthesiologist and expert cave diver. It was the confluence of these two skills that brought him to play the crucial role he played in the rescue. The stakes could not have been any higher and Harry did not even think the plan he helped design and would implement would work. But, as he puts it, it was a choice between letting the kids die a slow, painful death – or giving it a go.

For his efforts, he and his compatriot Craig Challen were given the Australian of the Year award. In spite of that, Dr. Harris is humble, possesses a service mindset, and is very quick to acknowledge that this was an amazing team effort – and a victory for the human spirit.

This is a wonderful conversation that deals with many of the themes we regularly tackle at All Things Risk:

  • Decision-making;
  • Planning;
  • Mindset;
  • Resilience;
  • Morality and ethics;
  • Humility,
  • Much more!
