On Wednesday July 1 at 4:30 pm Eastern Standard Time , there were 10, 717:96 cases and 516, 904 death from COVID-19 , globally. Guyana had 245 cases and 12 deaths from COVID-19. This pandemic has precipitated many socioeconomic changes. In June 2020, the World Economic Forum announced that in January 2021, there will be a conference in Davos Switzerland called the Great Reset. This conference of the global ruling elite, aims to usher in a new social contract and a new global socioeconomic system. The global elites argue that the global health crisis revealed that the current system is inadequate. Most people in the Caribbean and Guyana do not pay attention to the propaganda of the global elite but in this serious time it is required. Both local and global elites will not let a crisis go to waste.
The United Kingdom will engage in a no deal Brexit which means trade between the European Union will follow World Trade Organization rules. This mean the UK will pivot towards its former colonies to increase its international power. In June, Boris Johnson, prime minister of the UK, announced the merger of the department of international development and the Foreign Service. It will be called the Foreign, Commonwealth and development office. The name indicates the interest in commonwealth countries and will merge UK national interest with foreign aid. It is widely accepted that politicians in Guyana are susceptible to foreign aid. They usually put personal and party benefits over national interest.
The Caribbean but not Guyana is heavily indebted. Guyana’s debt to GDP ratio has reached over 55%. With tourism and global trade being very weak for at least few years, Guyana will likely seek debt relief or seek the aid of international financial institutions. They will want some concessions.
Before World War 1, passport was not generally required for international travel. Similarly, international travel will require more bureaucracy. Globally and locally personal freedom will be further limited after this pandemic. Pay attention to manoeuvre successfully.
