The impact of COVID-19 on the health of the world’s economies is as variable as the viral infection is on human health. Recovering from the economic collapse brought about by COVID-19 will take time, money and determination. Just as in healthcare, thoughtful guidance and comprehensive planning is needed to restore the economic health of local, national and global communities.
What are the therapies for ailing economies? Is an “economic vaccine” also 12 to 24 months away, or can recovery happen more quickly? What are the sequelae of this pandemic on world economies?
In these tumultuous, unprecedented times of global economic upheaval, our panel of local business experts spoke on both immediate action and long-term planning strategies necessary to bring back jobs and restore economic growth in Michigan and beyond.
