The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the global economy and the development prospects of countries in East Asia and the Pacific. Many changes will be lasting and all the consequences are not yet clear. The Research Center of the Office of Chief Economists for East Asia and the Pacific in Kuala Lumpur presented a course covering conceptual and empirical analysis accessible to economics students, economists, researchers and to other people interested in the field. The goal is to help understand what has happened in the past two years, why, what to expect and what can be done.

This 2 hour course introduced the conceptual and empirical analysis of key economic and political issues.

Topics covered:

  • Economy-wide impact: The macroeconomics of the pandemic and the implications for macro policy.
