Abstract

The present article aims to analyze the rise of poverty and social inequality in the world caused by the COVID-19 crisis, in addition to considering how to address the issue in the context of new perspectives on the social welfare state. In order to contain the spread of the pandemic, governments have adopted policies of social isolation. These measures have weakened the global supply chains, creating impacts between supply and demand, which in turn have generated uncertainties about income and employment. As a result, world economies are vulnerable to the increment of poverty and differences between social classes.

  

Este artículo tiene como objetivo analizar el aumento de la pobreza y la desigualdad social en el mundo causado por la crisis del COVID-19, también estudiar cómo se debe abordar el tema en el contexto de nuevas perspectivas sobre el Estado del bienestar social. Para contener la propagación de la pandemia, los gobiernos han adoptado políticas de aislamiento social. Estas medidas han debilitado las cadenas de suministro mundiales, creando impactos entre la oferta y la demanda, que a su vez han generado incertidumbres sobre los ingresos y el empleo. Como resultado, las economías mundiales quedan vulnerables al incremento de la pobreza y de las diferencias entre las clases sociales.
