The world is facing unprecedented challenges due to the escalating global uncertainty brought about by COVID-19. It is a highly complex, uncertain and fast-moving situation and increasingly dramatic measures are being adopted by countries around the world to try to minimize the crisis.
INSEAD is launching a new webinar series: “Navigating the Turbulence of COVID-19” to provide our community with deeper understanding of the key issues surrounding pandemic control and current countermeasures being taken around the world.
The webinars will be broadcast twice a week and will feature up-to-date analysis and insight from our faculty on the human cost of this pandemic, the growing global impact on the economy and the business implications of COVID-19. The webinars are free of charge for our alumni, students, faculty and staff.
Times are set for EDT.
This webinar features Antonio Fatas, INSEAD Professor of Economics, on “The Economic Consequences of the Corona Pandemic”.
As more and more countries adopt radical policies of containment and restrictions to mobility, the economic consequences of the fight against the coronavirus are becoming clear. Any sensible scenario for 2020 predicts a global recession and the question is how deep it will be and whether the recovery will come before the end of the year or we will find ourselves in a protracted period of subpar growth. In this session Professor Antonio Fatas will explore different macroeconomic scenarios for the months ahead and will discuss the policies adopted by different governments and central banks and their likely impact.
