Lead without example

2020 is a year without precedent. The global pandemic and economic shutdown are without parallel in modern history. Political and business leaders are called upon to nurture a fragile recovery without any prior experience.

The way forward must be charted without prior example.  In this context, agenda-setting journalism could not be more important. The Financial Times is your trusted guide to an unknown future that brings both risk and opportunity for business.
