COVID-19 Macro-economic consequences for developing countries
Presentation by Ricardo Hausmann
“Just when developing countries need to manage the pandemic, most have seen their fiscal space evaporate,” says Professor Ricardo Hausmann, one of the world’s leading experts on what drives economic growth, especially in developing countries.
Hausmann provides an excellent analysis of the macro-economic implications of COVID-19 as well as recommendations for developing countries and international institutions. You can watch the meeting recording or read the slides (see the two links below):
