Economics of coronavirus: COVID-19 impact and policy implications


As governments and institutions around the world take emergency action to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, economists are doing their part by analyzing the economic impact of the pandemic, and by exploring policy interventions that can minimize that impact.

The Barcelona GSE has started a collection of posts and articles by Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors on topics related to the economics of coronavirus.

We invite discussion on these articles and on the economics of coronavirus in general in the comments section of this post.

The list will be updated as the global health situation evolves and new material becomes available. Affiliated Professors are encouraged to share their work at so we can include it in the list.
