Covid-19 and the re-politicisation of the economy

From Zizek’s The Ticklish Subject pg 430:

In short, the only way effectively to bring about a society in which risky long-term decisions would ensue from public debate involving all concerned is some kind of radical limitation of Capital’s freedom, the subordination of the process of production to social control – the radical repoliticisation of the economy. That is to say: if the problem with today’s post-politics (‘administration of social affairs’) is that it increasingly undermines the possibility of a proper political act, this undermining is directly due to the depoliticisation of economics, to the common acceptance of Capital and market mechanisms as neutral tools/procedures to be exploited.
