From March – August 2020, as COVID-19 began to spread around the world, we closely monitored its impact; sending out daily Recession Watch newsletters and hosting weekly Recession Watch Forums to share insights and answer questions.

Our presentations provided an overview of the economic impacts of the pandemic, reporting on the policy choices made by various countries, and the use of new sources of data during a period of near-global lockdowns.
