The global economy is expected to face a prolonged downturn due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Many have predicted a U-shaped recovery as countries slowly ease restrictions. However, as the threat of a second wave of infections looms, the recovery may be more L-shaped with a sluggish recovery ahead.
Nouriel Roubini, Professor at Stern School NYU, shared an article containing his views on the damage caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
He noted that the economic recovery will not be U-shaped as claimed by many economists but rather L-shaped resembling a greater depression.
Roubini noted that an L-shaped recovery means the economy will contract sharply and stay there for an extended period of time.
