L’emergenza sanitaria del covid-19 ha messo a dura prova non solo il sistema sanitario globale, mettendone alla luce mancanza di fondi e difetti di organizzazione. Essa ha evidenziato malfunzionamenti a livello globale dell’attuale sistema economico e sociale e l’importanza del rispetto per l’ambiente per evitare non solo epidemie ma anche disuguaglianze sociali e problematiche economiche.
The health emergency caused by Covid-19 has undermined not only the global healthcare system, highlighting insufficient funds and flaws in the organization. It has underlined the malfunctioning of the current socio-economic system at the global level, and the importance of the environmental care in order to avoid not only pandemics, but also social inequalities and economic issues. The present work starts with an analysis of the economic, environmental and social repercussions of the recent coronavirus pandemic. In particular, we will analyse the peculiarities of the Covid crisis and what distinguishes it from the previous economic crises, highlighting the negative nature of the imminent economic development, which will probably lead to a global recession. The environmental consequences are then examined, observing their positive nature in the short term, but facing a double scenario in the long term and in the period immediately after the end of the containment measures. Finally, we will analyse the consequences of the pandemic on human development and, in particular, the role played by Covid-19 and by the containment measures in the process of exacerbation of the social inequalities on different levels, from the gender to the income level. In the second part of the work an analysis of the characteristics of the current economic system will follow, highlighting their role in the malfunctioning of the healthcare system and the strong dependence on globalisation and on the logic of profit of businesses. In particular, we will observe the repercussions on the food supply chain, which has proved to be one of the most important and most affected during the pandemic emergency. This analysis section about the already existing flaws of the economic system that have been amplified by the Covid emergency is concluding with a reflection on the consumeristic trends of citizens as the primary origin of the current issues. The third part is dedicated to the analysis of sustainable development and its possible applications in the current crisis. The section starts with an insight into the importance of a change in the indicators for wellbeing that are currently in use, that is to say the transition from the use of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as unique wellbeing measure to alternative indicators more appropriate for the measurement of social wellbeing. Starting from these preliminary remarks, it will be discussed about proposals for economic and social transformation by using sustainable development models examining already existing proposals of recent and less recent studies. In the last section, we will analyse the theory of economic Degrowth as the ultimate goal essential to the development of an effective sustainable model. Special reference will be made to the model of Economic Degrowth conceived by the economist and philosopher Serge Latouche and to other sources of alternative economic perspectives based on an inversion in trend of the global economy, that is to say on the transition from the infinite growth to an economic degrowth.
