Hello, PIDS friends! In support of the 19th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM), which we are celebrating this September, we are featuring the #PIDSFactFridayDPRM2021Edition. Our issue for this week is about Resetting Capitalism.

As we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we must anticipate that the ‘old-normal’ ways of living may not return. While the current pandemic is likely to become endemic in the future, the threat of public health issues remains, on top of existing problems, such as climate change, food insecurity, and increasing inequality and poverty. To better cope with current and emerging threats, countries need to reset their paradigms and practices and rebuild toward a better normal. Both the public and the private sector may start by drawing lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic. These lessons include encouraging more studies on the incidence, distribution, and control of diseases in a population, as well as providing quality and accessible health care to everyone and effective social protection to the vulnerable. Businesses should explore ways on how they can be both profitable and socially responsible. And everyone should be encouraged to adopt more sustainable ways of life. For better outcomes, all stakeholders need to work together to ensure that the interests of people, profit, and planet are met.

Browse through the slides to know more about resetting capitalism, which is among the topics featured in this year’s Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) celebration. Visit https://dprm.pids.gov.ph/ to know more about this year’s DPRM theme and activities.
