The Future of a Pandemic Economy

May 8, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

No one needs to see through the end of COVID-19 to know that it has already disrupted the global economy. The uncertainty is how bad the economic impact will be as the pandemic is far from over, according to health experts.

Businesses have shut down. Some may shut down permanently. Unemployment has skyrocketed. Individuals are facing financial anxiety while policymakers have been put on the spot to deliver an effective macroeconomic policy response for a crisis that may be worse than the Great Recession.

Dennis Lockhart, former President and CEO of the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank, will share his views on the state of the US economy, how effective economic policy actions have been so far and what else can be done. Lockhart, who led the Atlanta Fed throughout the 2008 financial crisis, will discuss how this situation is different and what we should expect in the years to come.

This program is exclusive for MEMBERS ONLY.
