Maria Madi and Mauricio Rezende Dias (Ed.), The Political Economy of COVID-19, World Economics Association, 2024

The Covid-19 twin economic and health crises call for a deep reflection on the forces that will shape the future of the global economy.  In fact, the outbreak of Covid-19 and the lockdown policies imposed a global economic crisis that challenges the traditional explanations of economic down turns and the way we are used to understanding and handling business cycles.  We hope that this volume will enhance a debate towards the understanding of the Covid-19 economic crisis and its “lockdown” governance in terms of its consequences for policymaking, business trends and social challenges.
