Beyond the extraordinary health consequences of the COVID-19 crisis, the pandemic has exposed the global community’s collective incapacity to confront social and economic shocks of such a large magnitude. During the webinar on December 18 at 4:00 p.m., renowned economics professor and Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz will assess the economic responses of governments and institutions globally—their successes and failures.

The conversation will be moderated by our senior fellow, Micael Castanheira and is organised by Georgetown University Global Economic Challenges (GEC) Network, Université Libre de Bruxelles (Solvay) and the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).
