Lorenzo Codogno, visiting Professor at the London School of Economics and previously chief economist in the Treasury Department of the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance joins Vincent to discuss the Eurozone's initial response to the rapid spread of Covid-19 in Italy and together look at what might be done to aid Italy on both a humanitarian and economic level.

Vincent is then joined by Dr Yu Jie, Senior Research Fellow on China at Chatham House to discuss the possible motivations behind China positioning itself as a helpful world leader in this time of crisis.

Sir Angus Deaton, Nobel Prize winning economist and co-author of 'Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism' joins Vincent to discuss why in the past two decades, deaths from suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism have risen dramatically in the United States and attempt to shed light on the socioeconomic forces that are making life harder for working class Americans as a whole.
