The COVID-19 pandemic is producing an unprecedented shutdown of large parts of the national and global economies. Our Director Dr. Jim Stanford provided an overview of the coming recession, how it differs from previous downturns, and the best ways for government to respond to protect Australians as much as possible from the economic fall-out.
Jim titled his presentation "Off the Cliff", highlighting that the immediate shutdown of so much of Australia's work and production is producing an economic contraction unlike anything experienced in history.
