People are willing to stay in big cities and fight the pandemic. This is truly surprising, Swedish economist and futurologist Kjell Nordstrom says.
According to him, the coronavirus seems to be incapable of disrupting processes such as globalization and urbanization. Kjell Nordstrom said he was surprised how people are trying to cope with the pandemic while staying in big cities.
Even New York, with its devastating outbreak of COVID-19 – and no, people are not leaving. The habit of living in cities appears stronger than the fear of death, the expert said quoted by RBC. In a few decades, the 600 biggest cities will account for 80% of the global economy, the economist added.
