Policy Watch: Covid-19 Economic Measures Across Top Global Economies

COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on nearly every aspect of the global economy. It is clear now that what was originally a supply-side shock—and to a lesser extent an export demand shock for the global economy—has morphed into something far more pernicious. As unprecedented as the crisis is, it’s being met by a wholly unprecedented global policy response.

Small steps on the road to retail recovery in Asia and Europe

With a few European countries now taking the first tentative steps towards the lifting of some COVID-19 restrictions, what can be learnt from experiences in Asia? The latter continent is generally thought to be in advance of Europe in terms of emergence from the pandemic crisis. However, it should be borne in mind, that as in Europe, so in Asia, the context and outcome vary by country, largely dependent on the government’s approach to the dealing with the spread of the virus.
