Webinar: Macroeconomics of Covid-19


We are pleased to announce that Lukasz Rachel will present the first webinar in a new series hosted by Inquire Europe. 

The Covid-19 pandemic will unfortunately prevent Inquire Europe members from convening for the Autumn Seminar. Instead, we will deliver elements of the seminar via a digital interface. A webinar series will feature the keynote speakers that would have taken the stage in Valencia. Please note that members are welcome to invite their colleagues to register. 

The series officially launches on 8 September, at 16:00 with Lukasz Rachel, who is an Affiliate of the Centre for Macroeconomics at the London School of Economics. Lukasz will present to members on on the latest macroeconomic research surrounding Covid-19. During his three- part presentation he will use an epidemiological model to discuss how both individual behavior and government policies affect outcomes, thus yielding varying degrees of economic impact.
