  • Understanding the Economic Shock of the Covid-19 Crisis

    4:18

    Predicting the path ahead has become nearly impossible, but we can speculate about the size and scale of the economic shock.


    Economic contagion is now spreading as fast as Covid-19 itself. Social distancing, intended to physically disrupt the spread, has severed the flow of goods and people, stalled economies, and is in the process of delivering a global recession. Predicting the path ahead has become nearly impossible, as multiple dimensions of the crisis are unprecedented and unknowable. Pressing questions include the path of the shock and recovery, whether economies will be able to return to their pre-shock output levels and growth rates, and whether there will be any structural legacy from the coronavirus crisis. This Explainer explores several scenarios to model the size and scale of the economic shock and the path ahead.

    Based on the HBR article by Philipp Carlsson-Szlezak, Martin Reeves and Paul Swartz

  • How the global economy has been damaged by Covid-19

    16:02

    The 16th of the March saw the biggest one day drop on the FTSE 100 and international markets since the financial crisis of 2008. At the centre of this crisis is Covid-19.

    But, is this the first time that a disease outbreak has caused so much damage to the economy, and how prepared is the global economy to deal with a pandemic?

    We explore the issues that have circled this crisis. And ask, what are the implications of a global economy that has become more and more interconnected in a pandemic?

  • Coronavirus outbreak: The impact COVID-19 is having on the global economy

    4:55

    In an effort to flatten curve of the COVID-19 pandemic the world has been forced to come to a standstill. Streets are empty, shops are closed and people are out of work, public gatherings have been banned in many places and travel restrictions have been imposed. And all of this is having a major impact on the global economy. The United Nations says we may see a $2 trillion shortfall in our global income and a $220 billion hit to developing countries because of COVID-19.

  • Coronavirus outbreak: The economic impact explained

    3:50

    The spread of the coronavirus has pushed the pause button on one of the world’s biggest economic powerhouses: China.

    China makes up a third of world manufacturing and is the world's largest exporter.

    Decades of globalization have created supply chains so deeply interconnected that when there are issues in China’s economy, it’s felt across the globe.

    As the number of coronavirus cases continues to rise around the world, there are deep concerns over the potential economic impact of the virus.

  • Coronavirus: Comeback for socialist economics? | COVID-19 Special

    12:16

    The economic crisis brought by the coronavirus pandemic has driven businesses of all sizes - as well as individuals - to rely on governments to help them through. Even once proud corporations have found themselves begging for bailouts, paid for by the state. With vast numbers of jobs dependent on the survival of businesses, some governments are now all that stands between their citizens and destitution. But will the pandemic also have a lasting impact on our economic system?

  • Coronavirus: How is it affecting the economy? - BBC Newsnight

    4:04

    The human cost of the coronavirus outbreak is climbing across China and beyond. The economic cost is also mounting, mainly, but not only, in China. So what is the global economic impact of Covid-19?
    Subscribe to our channel here:

    That damage is, for the most part, not due to the virus itself so much as efforts to prevent it spreading.

    There are strict restrictions on moving out of Wuhan, where the outbreak began, a city with a population of 11 million.

    The lockdown, also now extended to other parts of Hubei province, prevents business-related travel as well as the movement of goods and workers.

    Fear of the virus also means many people will choose to avoid activities they think might expose them to the risk of infection. So restaurants, cinemas, transport providers, hotels and shops are all quickly feeling the impact.

  • Why The Coronavirus Recession Is Unlike Any Other

    10:03

    The coronavirus pandemic is putting an end to the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. Policymakers and economists warn this recession will be unlike any other downturn.

    After expanding for a record 126 months as of December 2019, economists now predict GDP growth will plummet in the first and second quarters of the year as businesses shutter and hundreds of millions of Americans are locked down.

    This is a huge, unprecedented, devastating hit, former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen told CNBC on Monday, adding she expects GDP to tumble 30% year on year in the second quarter.

    Dire unemployment and growth forecasts have led some to compare the coronavirus downturn to the Great Recession from 2007 to 2009 or the Great Depression in the 1930s. However, policymakers say this recession is unlike any other in U.S. history because it was spawned by a health crisis, not by an unhealthy economy.

    I would point to the difference between this and a normal recession: There is nothing fundamentally wrong with our economy, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell told NBC's TODAY last month.

  • The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus Event Cancellations

    12:25

    Major tech conferences around the world are scrapping their events due to coronavirus. As of early March, the economic impact of these cancellations had surpassed $1.1 billion and since that time, the number has only increased as more events are scrapped everyday. Major cities from San Francisco to New York have banned large gatherings, as diagnoses in the U.S. have soared. It’s undoubtedly a smart move for public safety. But all these cancellations, particularly of major conferences, are taking a huge financial toll.

  • Coronavirus: impact on Global Economy - BBC News

    10:01

    The US economy suffered its most severe contraction in more than a decade in the first quarter of the year, as the country introduced lockdowns to slow the spread of coronavirus.

    The world's largest economy sank at an annual rate of 4.8%, according to official figures released on Wednesday.

    It marked the first contraction since 2014, ending a record expansion.

    But the figures just hint at the full crisis, since many of the restrictions were not put in place until March.

    The pandemic is causing tremendous human and economic hardship across the United States and around the world, policymakers at America's central bank said on Wednesday.

    Half of the world's workers are in danger of having their livelihoods destroyed by the coronavirus pandemic, a United Nations agency has warned.

    The International Labour Organisation's updated analysis emphasises its severe impact on people in informal work.

    It says many have already suffered massive damage to their capacity to earn a living.

    Without alternative income, these workers and their families would have no means to survive, it says.

    The new analysis says 1.6 billion people's livelihoods are threatened by the virus, equivalent to almost half the global workforce.

  • What is the economic impact of coronavirus?

    Concerns about coronavirus have had another effect - on the global economy.

    The share price of some of the UK's 100 largest companies has dropped and the price of oil also fell. Companies with a presence in China were some of the most affected.

    While children and young people have been spared the full force of Coronavirus itself, the worst is yet to come for this generation as the global economy enters unchartered territory. Latest projections from UNICEF and partners indicate that nearly half a billion children in total will live in poor households by the end of 2020. Lockdowns to control the health crisis are having severe repercussions as they cascade down, with children being twice as likely to end up in poverty than other groups and prospects for young people drastically reduced.

    Just in Europe and north America alone some 90 million full-time jobs were lost in the second quarter, according to the ILO. The COVID-recession not only threatens to erode global development but is predicted to have a broader and deeper impact than the 2008 financial crisis as it hits both supply and demand chains as well as informal sectors across Africa and South Asia. But does it have to be as bad as it seems? We asked a panel of experts where the economy stands now, what lies ahead and how do we make the best of the worst that is to come for children and young people.

  • How the coronavirus outbreak is affecting the global economy | Counting the Cost

    25:01

    It was a bruising year for China. A trade war with the United States left its economy expanding at the slowest pace in 30 years.

    And economists estimate 4 million jobs may have been lost in 2019. This year is already being defined by the outbreak of the coronavirus which has killed thousands and has infected thousands more, putting the brakes on China's economy.

    Economists polled by Reuters expect China's growth rate to slump to 4.5 percent in the first quarter of this year from 6 percent in the previous quarter. That would be the slowest pace since the financial crisis.

    With much of the country in lockdown, the virus could affect up to 42 percent of China's economy, according to Standard Chartered.

    Companies may struggle to make payments on loans leading to a rise in what is called non-performing loans of $1.1 trillion, according to Standard and Poor's. Chinese airlines have been forced to ground planes and are expected to lose $12.8bn in revenue.

    Globally, the airline industry is set to lose $29bn, according to the International Air Transportation Association (IATA). And the effect of COVID-19 is being felt regionally.

    Well, as you know, from 15 to 20 years ago China was already dubbed as 'the factory of the world' so then what we have seen now is that the supply chain sourcing has been interrupted, Reuben Mondejar, professor for Asian Initiatives at the IESE Business School, University of Navarra, tells Al Jazeera.

    Argentina needs help to avoid death default, again
    Argentina's economy is expected to contract for the third consecutive year. Inflation is running at more than 50 percent and the country is in talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to avoid a default on its debt.

    Since the late 1950s, the IMF has provided loans and bailouts to Argentina more than 20 times. But this time it has finally admitted what everyone else was saying - that Argentina's debt is unsustainable.

    The country has debts of more than $320bn. The IMF now says they will have to take losses on their holdings. And there seems to be a determination in Buenos Aires that they will not accept any new austerity measures.

    In fact, the new President Alberto Fernandez has instead frozen prices and increased salaries.

    Richard Segal, a senior analyst with Manulife Asset Management, explains that the situation in Argentina has been stressed for many years.

    The IMF is acknowledging what we have understood for a long time, meaning that the public debt is unsustainable and it needs to be written down quite substantially, Segal notes.

  • Coronavirus lockdown: The longterm effect on the UK economy - BBC Newsnight

    4:34

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to announce plans to restart the economy and ease coronavirus lockdown restrictions. Subscribe to our channel here:

    But how do you reboot an economy, when the government is paying the wages of more than six million citizens?

    The government is now paying the wages for nearly a quarter of UK jobs under its furlough programme.

    The scheme is designed to help people put on leave due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    There have been more than 6.3 million claims - equal to 23% of the employed workforce.

    So what happens when lockdown restrictions end and the furlough scheme comes to and end? What does unemployment look like for the rest of 2020 and will the government still continue its election promise of levelling up?

    What is furlough?
    - Furlough supports firms hit by coronavirus by temporarily helping to pay the wages of people who can't do their jobs.
    - It allows employees to stay on the payroll, even though they aren't working.
    - The company can top up this pay if it chooses and must let employees know they have been furloughed.
    - The scheme - backdated to 1 March 2020 - opened to applications on 20 April and will run until at least the end of June 2020.

    Business Editor Helen Thomas reports.

  • COVID-19 uncertainty: A virus-weakened global economy

    42:52

    It has been a dramatic 48 hours. The Italian government on Sunday announced that more than 15 million people in the industrial heartland of the country were being quarentined for a period of four weeks. It came as the deathtoll from the Corona Virus in Italy shot up to the highest level outside of Mainland China. The Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte argues that these drastic measures are a bitter pill for the country's economy in the short term but that this will spare the country longer-term economic damage.
