Central banks of various economies have announced stimulus packages to deal with the impact caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

These measures offer a short-term solution for the crisis.

More targeted policies that address various aspects of the economy are essential to enable a quick economic recovery.

Jonathan Portes, professor of economics at King’s College London, shared his article on the long-term impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
