About the Event

 On 27 May our Corporate member IE University organizes in collaboration with the Spanish Chambers of Commerce network in Asia, an online seminar inviting Gayle Allard, Professor of Economic Environment and Country Analysis at IE Business School.

Economic Impact of the Coronavirus :

The coronavirus was a "black swan" event that upended economies and markets across the world. Why did it cause so much disruption, and how will we ultimately be affected?

As the COVID-19 crisis proceeds, all analysis in health, politics, and economics is focused on how broad the spread will be and how long it will last.  Economic projections have been dire and developing countries which have not yet really experienced the virus are already being hard by its fallout. Meanwhile, countries are debating when and how to return to normal. This webinar will review the present situation and the measures being taken to address the crisis on both the health and economic fronts. It will offer some forecasts for what the COVID-19 crisis will ultimately look like and how it will affect our lives.

Gayle Allard is a professor of Economic Environment and Country Analysis at IE Business School who achieved a PhD in Economics, University of California at Davis, USA. Gayle collaborates with newspapers and magazines such as The Herald Tribune and El País. She has been teaching for more than 25 years, training students in the area of the economic environment and international economics. Aside from teaching, she worked as an Economist for JP Morgan and is currently a Research Economist for The Economist Intelligence Unit.
