Paper: Covid-19 and GDP a Life and Death Trade-off

Dear friends,

It was once said that the decision to leave a war is as difficult as to enter it. The situation in which we find ourselves with the Covid-19 pandemic (one which we did not chose to enter) and its impacts on all sectors of society poses this enormous challenge. In particular, the consequences on economic activity are highlighted, which, some argue, may have even greater consequences than the pandemic itself. Thus, the issue must be addressed taking into account the timeframe, the extent and the intensity of the disease in the population, but also, and perhaps above all, how to control and economically manage the effects of the outbreak.

Have a good read!
