Conversations on COVID-19

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has presented some serious questions about the future of our economy. How will COVID-19 affect financial institutions? What impact will this pandemic have on global trade? What does it mean to graduate into an economy reshaped by the coronavirus? 

UEA’s new speaker series aims to tackle such questions. Each week, faculty from the Economics department will lead discussions and answer questions on the various economic implications of COVID-19. Topics will differ by week, covering a wide range of issues. 

Next week, we will be joined by Professor Heather Royer and Professor Marsella Alsan, both of whom will be leading on the tradeoff between health and economics in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us next Friday 6/5 at 3pm. We will be raffling off a free UCSB Econ shirt!
