Abstract

The Great Depression of 1929 and the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic in 2019, as typical world events that changed international society's development, both significantly impacted the global political and economic landscape. The analysis of the impact of the two events on world politics and the economy reveals certain similarities and differences. The main similarities are that the events lasted for a long time and were very harmful; they caused domestic political turmoil and a lack of international cooperation. The differences are mainly in the context of the events and their political and economic impacts. The article focuses on comparing the results and effects of these two events from the political and economic dimensions, analyzing the reasons for their similarities and differences, and exploring and explaining the critical role of China in them.
