The topic of the book is timely: innovation is what will defeat this virus, whether in vaccines, antiviral drugs or track-and-trace apps. The need to unleash innovation to defend humanity against future pandemics is clear, and the failure to do so enough in the past is worrying. It’s evident too that innovation is a collaborative process which depends on the exchange of ideas, as Matt argues in the book, and whose benefits reach us all through the exchange of goods and services that we call trade. The world really is all in this together.
