About This Event

The acceleration of the coronavirus beyond initial outbreak to a global pandemic has stoked concern in a global economy that had just cleared challenges such as a US-China trade relation reset and a finalized Brexit. While the stock market has largely been impacted by the coronavirus, the next test is how the US and the global economy will continue to absorb shocks to the global supply chain, travel industry, and the manufacturing base, even after the injection of the $2 trillion relief package to the US economy. Grant Thornton's chief economist Diane Swonk joins The Economist's Midwest Correspondent Adam Roberts for a video conversation on the economic currents of the day and the developing impact of COVID-19.
