Covid-19 has been a massive storm cloud for the economy, with the largest drop in GDP since records began. But there is a significant silver lining.

As Sam Stubbs explains, the crisis has delivered up a rare moment in history when the best of capitalist and socialist economic ideas can combine to supercharge long-term growth.

"This is a once in a generation opportunity to build on a very large scale. It will employ many, and facilitate private enterprise to employ many more. And it can be funded at record low interest rates. We look back on other times in history when this happened with a warm nostalgia."
