Broader Economic Implications of Coronavirus

There has been wide discussion and commentary on the potential economic and financial impact of the corona virus both internationally and locally – but little reported consideration of the broader economic implications of the pandemic

The economic impact of the pandemic cannot be seen in isolation from both short trends in the local and international economies at the end of 2019 and the existing structural weaknesses in the international economies.

The talk starts with a setting of the scene by noting the key feature of recent economic crises. It then positions the beginning of the pandemic in the context of the 2019 economic landscape. The discussion moves to the broader implications by comparing the key features of this pandemic to recent economic crises. The presentation closes by considering the economic implications of potential policy options, followed by Q&A.
