The economic and political impact of the coronavirus pandemic is growing more dramatic by the day. Millions of businesses and the jobs they support are under threat. Civil liberties in many countries are being drastically curtailed as governments fight to control the spread of Covid-19.

How will all this change the world economy and what does it mean for globalisation as we know it?

In this Coronavirus special live event, jointly produced with the Institute for Global Affairs at the LSE, our Pocket Dilemmas host, Jonathan Charles is joined by EBRD Chief Economist Beata Javorcik, and three other leading economists.

* Erik Berglöf, the Director of the Institute of Global Affairs at LSE and Professor of Economics

*Sergei Guriev, Professor of Economics at Sciences Po

All three are also former EBRD Chief Economists.
