Happy Birthday, COVID-19 – Foreign Policy  Foreign Policy

Was China’s zero-COVID policy a mistake?

Three years ago, a new virus wreaked havoc on China and triggered a public health and economic crisis around the world. Today, COVID-19 is still roiling China and destabilizing the world economy.

About Ones and Tooze:  Foreign Policy economics columnist Adam Tooze, a history professor and a popular author, is encyclopedic about basically everything: from the COVID shutdown, to climate change, to pasta sauce. On our new podcast, Tooze and FP deputy editor Cameron Abadi will look at two data points each week that explain the world: one drawn from the week’s headlines and the other from just about anywhere else Tooze takes us.

I Spy

Spies don’t talk—it’s the cardinal rule of the business. But here at Foreign Policy, we get them to open up. On I Spy, we hear from the operations people: the spies who steal secrets, who kill adversaries, who turn agents into double agents. Each episode features one spy telling the story of one operation.
