COVID-19: Long-Term Economic and Social Implications
The short-term implications of the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic are painfully apparent. But what might be the long-term implications? Is the crisis a game-changer, a turning point? Or does it represent an acceleration of preexisting trends? Demographic and technological trends are likely to be intensified by the crisis, especially at the micro level. Inequality is likely to be exacerbated at the macro level. De-globalization will depend on the extent to which protectionism, nationalism, and populism prevail over liberalism.
