Summary

It's time for a second Marshall Plan, a global investment in the fight against COVID-19 with the world's premier health-care professionals and superior vaccines. At NYU, where I teach, many of the brightest minds and best teachers are from one place: India.Coming to the aid of Brazil and India (and ultimately, of other countries in crisis) will define 21st century global leadership. And while President Biden has promised to donate 80 million doses abroad, not one has shipped.The vaccine gap reflects a larger trend: a slow ceding of leadership by the United States. China, meanwhile, is projected to invest over $1.2 trillion in 60 countries by 2027 through its "Belt and Road" initiative.Pandemic relief presents an opportunity to reestablish America's historic role as the "leader of the free world." Ceding leadership of the recovery to China is not in the United States' national interest, nor is it in the interest of the world community. For China, repressive authoritarianism is the promise.The Biden Administration has announced plans to send 80 million doses of vaccines abroad, which is a good start, but just a start. Additionally, the US could empower the Peace Corps, Doctors Without Borders, and other nongovernmental organizations with strong global networks (e.g., Latter-day Saints missionaries, 30,000 of whom were recalled at the start of the pandemic) to distribute vaccine-adjacent aid widely, efficiently, and with trusted hands.This action — deployment of force, innovation, and investment — could cement the United States' position as a global superpower, one that is both strong and benevolent.
