This Time is Different: Economic Policy Challenges in the time of COVID-19

A virtual panel discussion was held at ICEF on June 3rd to discuss the economic consequences and policy responses to Covid-19 with economic experts from academia, central banks and commercial banks, based in Russia, UK, and Austria.

This Time is Different: Economic Policy Challenges in the time of COVID-19

As a result of COVID-19 the global economy is experiencing challenges rarely seen out of times of war. At a national level these challenges stem from efforts to ensure political-financial-economic stability whilst preserving the health and safety of citizens. The consequences and trade-offs in the decisions that are being made will have repercussions that will affect the world for many years to come.

This panel discussion focused on the economic policy responses that have been or may be made and the consequences and implications for political-financial-economic stability. Our expert panel of acclaimed economists from academia, policy institutes and the private sector discussed both the global impact as well as the impact within Russia. In addition to presenting their views, the panel fielded questions from an online audience in an interactive Q&A session. The event was attended by participants from academia, central banks and policy institutes, the private sector, and the press, from Russia and abroad.
