Pandemics in the age of hyperconnectivity

In this week's Rachman Review, Gideon Rachman speaks to Ian Goldin of Oxford University - an economist who has long warned of the dangers of pandemics. Professor Goldin explains his theory of "the butterfly defect" in globalisation - in which a hyper-connected world is vulnerable to global emergencies.
