This is an exclusive opportunity to hear from one of the country’s leading economists, Professor Jonathan Haskel. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge shock to the UK economy, the scale of which has not been seen since the early 18th Century. What will our recovery look like?
Hear from Professor Jonathan Haskel, renowned British economist & Bank of England Monetary Policy committee Member. Jonathan will talk through the economic modelling of the initial recession and the lessons for the recovery. He’ll set out how economists model the interrelations between sectors and how lockdown cascaded falls in demand from closed sectors to the rest of the economy. He’ll then set out how to model the recovery: what types of workers will be affected and how consumers will respond to unemployment and the fears of further infection.
