Navigating the post-COVID economy: Does anyone have a map?
Panel

COVID-19 is likely to be a persistent challenge and source of uncertainty for some time. In this post-pandemic world, economic analysis needs to be done differently. History is not a useful guide in understanding how to analyze event-driven - rather than cyclical - recessions. The scale and speed of COVID-19 impacts have left economists struggling for new models and analytical frameworks. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the first coronavirus cases, what do we now know about the recovery? Are we on the path to fully recover? How will the economy be different going forward?

  • Dawn Desjardins, Vice President and Deputy Chief Economist, RBC Economics, Royal Bank of Canada
  • Frances Donald, Managing Director, Global Chief Economist and Global Head of Macroeconomic Strategy, Manulife Investment Management
  • Benjamin Tal, Deputy Chief Economist, CIBC Capital Markets
