This event, hosted by UK think tank the Resolution Foundation will discuss different approaches to fiscal policy during the Covid recovery.
Fiscal policy has returned centre stage during the Covid-19 pandemic. But as countries begin to recovery from the crisis, they are taking different approaches to the scale of fiscal expansion and the timing of fiscal retrenchment. What is the right approach to fiscal policy in the recovery, and what are the challenges in terms of growth, inflation, deficits and debt?
In this webinar, Nobel Laureate Joe Stiglitz will present an overview of fiscal policy during the Covid recovery, before we hear from economist Elga Bartsch and discuss the risks and rewards from different approaches.
Viewers are able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.
Joseph Stiglitz – University Professor, Columbia
