BPEA Fall 2020: COVID-19 and the Economy

Thursday, September 24, 2020

10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Online only

The Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) is a semi-annual academic conference and journal that pairs rigorous research with real-time policy analysis to address the most urgent economic challenges of the day.

On Thursday, September 24, Brookings held its semi-annual academic conference to discuss new research on COVID-19’s current and future impact on the economy. This year’s fall conference covered issues of epidemiology and economics, business effects and job losses in the COVID-19 crisis, state and local public finance, and monetary and international issues. While BPEA conferences are usually small, invitation-only gatherings, Brookings is opening its proceedings to anyone who wishes to observe the vanguard of economic thought around urgent public health and the global economic issues.
