The World Economy Post-COVID
In March of 2020, the world experienced the shock of the COVID-19 outbreak. The world economy was thrown into an unprecedented crisis, and governments and central banks proposed various policies to overcome it. How will the world economy change after the COVID-19 pandemic? Will extreme inflation really devastate counties around the world?
To answer the questions that leaders around the world are struggling with, the 2008 Economic Sciences Nobel Memorial Prize winner and The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman presents this thought-provoking lecture series.
“The World Economy Post-COVID” gives us a wealth of knowledge on today’s most pressing economic concerns. What issues did we have before the outbreak of the coronavirus? Were the steps taken to deal with the pandemic appropriate? And what is in store for 2023, a year in which we expect to see the end of this pandemic? Krugman takes on these questions with his unique insights and perspectives, using objective indicators to back up his claims.
He also takes us deep into the ultimate issue: climate change. With a 44-year career in the field of economics, he had proven his analytical acumen by predicting the 1997 Asian financial crisis and the 2007 U.S. subprime mortgage crisis. Will he be right about the impending disaster of climate change?
Will the world economy in 2023 revert to the same state as it was in 2019? Will we be able to return to how life was before COVID-19? Through Paul Krugman’s lecture series, we will come face to face with the question of the sustainability of our economy as we head towards an uncertain future.
