Fireside Chats - The Covid 19 Endgame

The endgame of Covid-19 leaves economists in a challenging position; in many ways, the outlook is more complicated now than it was at the onset of the pandemic.

  • As the world learns to live with Covid-19, it’s bringing about structural changes
  • There are fundamental alterations in people’s behavior, public opinion and government approach
  • Forecasting has become more complicated, but certain macro themes are likely to play out in coming years

In this episode of our Fireside Chats series we’ll be talking with economists Rob Subbaraman, Sonal Varma and Aichi Amemiya on their latest big picture piece titled – the COVID-19 endgame. We'll be asking them, what is the endgame for COVID-19’s impact on markets? Will we see permanently higher levels of unemployment, and will higher inflation be less transitory than expected?

For more detailed views on the above themes, read our full report.
