This series is in conjunction with The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford and the Oxford Review of Economic Policy.

We will look at the economics of the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on economic activity, employment, supply & demand, globalisation, trade, the developing countries, businesses and gender balance. How should recovery packages be designed? What are the implications for public finance? And, when the dust settles, what should we have done differently, and what should we do differently to prepare for next time?
