These are troubling and uncertain times for the global economy, which is expected to contract by a staggering 3 percent in 2020. The International Monetary Fund says we’re in the midst of the worst downturn since the Great Depression.

What’s next? What economic impact will the COVID-19 crisis have on Asian markets, and how should policymakers respond?

Speakers for this event are renowned Booth professors Chang-Tai Hsieh and Randall S. Kroszner, and Hong Kong economist Richard Wong (AB’74, AM’74 & PhD’81). The event will be moderated by Henny Sender, chief correspondent for international finance at the Financial Times.
