Coronavirus Pandemic

Lessons and Policy Response

Uma Kapila (Ed.)

Economic Developments in India (EDI), Volume 250

About the Book

<p>India is in the thick of the world-wide novel Coronavirus disease—COVID-19, grappling with three crises at the same time. The pandemic itself is causing health crisis, a humanitarian crisis especially for migrant workers and daily wage earners following the lockdown and a very sharp negative macroeconomic shock to both employment and incomes—a steep fall in GDP (-23.9% in Q1 of FY 20-21) and hence also government resources. This is the first economic crisis in recent memory that has been triggered by a non-economic factor—a pandemic.</p> <p>Coronavirus Pandemic: Lessons and Policy Response puts together contributions on the subject covering various aspects of the health crisis, economic crisis and humanitarian crisis in 31 chapters by 23 economists, analysing how health, macroeconomic and financial policies must do the things today that set the stage for V shaped recovery. This calls for thoughtful policy decisions through 2020 and 2021.</p>
