Inflation, Pandemic and War: Is this time really different?
4-5.30pm, Monday 13 February 2023
World economies are facing a troika of challenges in the form of war (in Ukraine), disease (COVID19) and return of inflation, all of which has led to dampened growth globally. How far are these challenges, individually and as a combination, new, and what lessons can we draw from the history?
To answer these questions, we take a long-run view from the early modern times to the present and discuss implications of war, disease and inflation on our economies. Our panel of experts draw lessons from more than 100 years of history to highlight risks to recovery, effective policy responses and how history can inform the present.
Discussion followed by Q&A featuring Dr Tehreem Husain & Dr Natacha Postel-Vinay (LSE), and Professor D'Maris Coffman (UCL)
