Richard Baldwin, Simon Evenett, Anna Stellinger
, -

Online Presentation

While there has been admirable international cooperation among doctors and virologists fighting COVID-19, the prospects for international cooperation and coordination on the economic front do not look bright. In this webinar, the co-editors and one of the contributors of the new e-book "COVID-19 and Trade Policy: Why Turning Inward Won’t Work" will discuss how restrictive trade policies that some governments are pursuing are doubly harmful and possible solutions ahead.

This webinar is organised in collaboration with CEPR logo

In this webinar, the co-editors and one of the contributors to the new e-book "COVID-19 and Trade Policy: Why Turning Inward Won’t Work" will discuss how restrictive trade policies that some governments are pursuing are doubly harmful and what initiatives can be proposed, highlighting how groups of nations—if not every nation—can cooperate in meaningful ways to stamp out COVID-19’s threat to humanity. It is time to rediscover the logic of international cooperation.
