Long-Term Effects of COVID-19 on the Economy

For the School’s Leading Through Change webinar series, CBS faculty, alumni, and special guests have shared insights over the past six months on the future of the economy during the pandemic.

Economics & Policy, Social Impact

For the past six months, the Leading Through Change webinar series has featured insights and analysis from faculty, alumni, and special guests on the two prevailing issues in 2020: the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy and how the business world has responded to the nationwide reckoning on anti-Black systemic racism.

In the coming weeks, we will be revisiting some of these important conversations.

The series debuted with a March 26 discussion between Dean Emeritus Glenn Hubbard and Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz that offered an early analysis of the long-term impact of the pandemic on the global economy. As the severity of the downturn became clearer throughout the spring and summer, subsequent webinars provided insights into specific sectors, such as real estate, and examined policy options for governments and central banks.
