This seminar will preview the authors’ forthcoming article in the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies.

Unlike previous crises, COVID-19 is in simultaneously a supply and demand shock. In this seminar, we will discuss the impact of the shock to the world economy and Indonesia, government’s response to the public health and emerging economic crisis and the distributional effects of the COVID-19. In our discussion, we will also draw parallel to the 1997/98 Asian Financial Crisis.
