An extended paper that explains to non-specialists how the coronavirus will affect the global economy. It presents detailed data on the negative impact that has occurred thus far, as well as forecasts on the future damage to the global economy.
The paper explains the main channels that economists think about when attempting to gauge the virus’s economic fallout, and then presents the most recent assessments being circulated in the research community. It is written in a manner that is accessible to non-economists, while still making use of the cutting-edge contributions made in the academic literature.
