The coronavirus pandemic is set to trigger the largest UK recession in postwar history as consumer demand collapses, unemployment rises and businesses are forced to close or reduce their operations. Can the government prevent the slump turning into a prolonged depression? What lessons can be learned from the 2008 financial crisis? And what economic model should the UK adopt in the future?
Join the New Statesman’s Senior Online Editor George Eaton, journalist Paul Mason, Executive Director of IPPR Carys Roberts and economist Ann Pettifor for an online panel discussion and live Q&A exploring the coronavirus' economic impact in the UK and the fiscal measures taken to address the crisis.
