INTER-SYSTEMIC CASCADES PROJECT
About the ISC Project
The Cascade Institute’s Inter-Systemic Cascades Project maps causal routes through which the COVID-19 pandemic could sequentially destabilize associated national and global systems, causing cascades of change. This series of Briefs focuses on the pandemic’s implications for the eight key systems highlighted around the adjacent octagon, and each Brief maps a possible causal route of destabilization among these systems. Cascades may be either "pernicious" (socially harmful) or “virtuous” (socially beneficial).
