Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the world economy in 2020. As of December 23, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) reports more than 76 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and over 1.7 million deaths worldwide. At the intersection of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global economy, numerous issues pose challenges to scholars and policy makers. Financial globalization may help to slow down the de-globalization of trade after COVID-19. As international financial transactions can be easily implemented, international trade transactions would be facilitated. In addition, financial openness may motivate international trade.This special issue of the EAER features seven papers in both international trade and international macroeconomics and finance on the theme of “The Global Economy after COVID-19: Challenges and Policy Resolutions.”
