The presentation will examine the longer-term economic implications of COVID-19. This is an update on a presentation James made a year ago. In this follow-up he will explore what he and other economists got right early on and what has turned out differently than those initial expectations. It will include a discussion of the impact of the pandemic on investment in equipment, software and intellectual property, residential and commercial real estate, implications for potential economic growth, inflation and monetary and fiscal policy.
