How Covid-19 is altering economic beliefs and perceptions - and why it matters

Director, CEPII

The impact of Covid-19 goes way beyond health and economics. By shedding crude light on the vulnerabilities of our societies, on the dependence of our economies and on the frailty of ecological equilibria, it is altering behaviors and perceptions. Understanding the nature of these changes is key if on-going changes are to be properly understood:

  • To what extent are temporary forced savings going to turn into permanent precautionary savings?

  • Will private sector decision makers significantly shift their risk evaluations?

  • Will citizen and government push to revamp significantly international relationship, and to reshape globalization?
