The economic implications of COVID-19

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 21 MAY

Two leading industry experts have joined forces to discuss the economic implications of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

With the latest statistics showing that the number of people claiming unemployment benefit in the UK soared to 2.1 million in April, how safe are people’s jobs? Is the Government’s furlough scheme going to work? What will be the impact on gig-economy workers, and are we heading towards the worst recession on record?

In the latest Centre for Brexit Studies podcast episode, industry experts Professor Alex de Ruyter, Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies, and Professor David Bailey, Visiting Professor at the Centre for Brexit Studies, as well as Senior Fellow at the UK in a Changing Europe and Professor of Business Economics at Birmingham Business School, discuss the economic implications of COVID-19.

The experts discuss what the long-term damage will be, and if the UK will ever truly recover from the impact of the pandemic.
