Course Description

As we’re facing many new and escalating challenges on the global economic front, particularly from the COVID-19 (coronavirus), it is essential first to recognize the impact that this health crisis is having on lives around the world. Going into 2020, the global economy is decelerating sharply, with the United States at risk of recession. The point of the talk is to provide an overview of the economic outlook in the context of the structure of the U.S. economy. 

Economists are studying what the unfolding progress will look like and how federal and state-level policies that are in place for opening will impact economic performance. Of paramount importance is understanding how the reopening of the economy will bring jobs back across different sectors and geographies. The near-term outlook is deeply uncertain, but a fundamental understanding of the underlying economy will be extremely useful in thinking about the course of the economic difficulties and ultimate recovery.

Learning Objectives

  • A better understanding of the nature of the current recession and the associated policy responses.
  • An appreciation of the relative importance of the components of the economy and the problems and prospects facing each of them.
  • Longer-term secular movements in the global economy and their potential impact on the U.S.
  • Why price indexes are behaving the way they are.
  • Insights into the labor market and understanding what the different metrics are telling us.
