The Economics of COVID-19
By The Oxford Union
For the first of four podcasts in our special series on the coronavirus pandemic, we look at its economic consequences, from rising unemployment to a stock market crash on at least the scale of 2008. What responses have we seen from governments and central banks, and will they be enough to ensure a swift recovery once lockdowns are lifted? Will the inequality created by this crisis define a generation? Joining us to answer these questions are Prof. Jason Furman, Prof. Michèle Tertilt, Ian Bremmer and Dr Eric Feigl-Ding.
