Abstract

This paper represents a collection of essays on the economics of pandemics written during the first six months of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, i.e. December 2019 – May 2020. These essays cover an array of issues ranging from lockdowns, to fiscal constraints, to monetary theory, to the aerospace sector, to demographic shifts, to international (non)cooperation, to contemporary capitalism. These essays help to illustrate the regional and global challenges presented by an unprecedented public health crisis, and the struggles of societies to cope with the unforeseen.

Keywords: coronavirus, lockdown, COVID19, crisis, stimulus, vaccine, Covid-19, pandemic, market
